Things I love about physics:

There was a plan at one time to make something called a Superconducting Super Collider. What was it supposed to do? I don't know. But it has two "supers" in its name. And that's always a good idea, I think.

The physicists have plans for something called a Large Hadron Collider, and then more plans for a Super Large Hadron Collider.
Hadrons have something to do with quarks, which have something to do with particles. All of this, not so interesting...although quarks have nice names: up, down, charm, strange, top and bottom are all "flavors" of quarks. I also like the words quarkonia and strangelet.

Tshirts about physics to come! Yay!

Don't forget string theory. It sounds like something for kids or a kitten.
