Q is for . . .

Quark: an elementary particle and a fundamental constituent of matter. (Wiki) They combine to form hadrons such as protons and neutrons (components of atomic nuclei).The six different types are called flavors: up, down, strange, charm, bottom, and top. What is this? Physics or the Kama Sutra?

But seriously though, a quark is also a character from Star Trek and a dairy product. Who knew? What Q-word did you pick to blog about?

  1. Quarks are interesting. I read about them in one of Stephen Hawking's books.

    Have a Happy Easter!

I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
