I have to find interesting things about bromine, but I can't find anything that really captures my attention besides it's a liquid at room temperature. Do you know anything that you find interesting about it?

The wiki article should have more than enough info:

Bromine is also 100% clear as water when seen in near Infrared, I just discovered this a few seconds ago.

Also, Bromine is placed in a group which changes in physical states from top to bottom.

Breathing bromine can result in an excruciatingly painful death as it corrodes the inner surface of your lungs and fills them up with many sorts of interesting fluids.

Like some unfortunate, ill-washed schoolboys, it is named after its unpleasant smell. Unlike the schoolboys, this isn't just a nickname.
