My name means acid (oxy) forming (genes) in Greek. I'm not quite sure how I form acids because I don't really understand what an acid is yet. It probably has to do with the fact that I am awesome (2nd best) at pulling electrons towards myself. I know that the stronger an element's electronegativity, the stronger the acid it can form(2). I'm also really good at pulling desserts towards myself. I hope there is cake!
