Because as we all know, proposed scientific terms have always stuck once proposed, and never underwent name changes.

Especially not Atomic Energy.

Although some bizarre ones stick, take the Penguin Diagram. It was invented after some physicists at CERN made a bet while drunk at a bar that the loser had to put the word penguin in their next paper. The loser came up with the diagram while on pot. Now, it's used in all sorts of particle physics.

Someone once asked one of my professors about tough movement (ex. "it is tough to solve this problem" cf. "this problem is tough to solve"). She said, "well, we were smoking a lot of drugs back then." It's actually called "tough movement" because it's difficult and doesn't make any sense. I dropped that class.

The SCSI computer connector (skuzee) was intended by its creator to be pronounced "sexy".

The solution to the tough movement is more fibre.

Why do people always end anecdotes like this with some kind of closure or finality? Was the "I dropped that class" really necessary, and did it add anything to the story? I doubt it was even true.

Why do people who have no knowledge of the subject and/or poster end their ridiculous rebuttals with statements of opinions with which they have no verification?
