if i ever become a great scientist and get the chance to name a particle or asteroid or diagram i’ll make it the first word ever to rhyme with orange. that way, my obscure scientific term will be assured of enduring fame as a lexicographic footnote. not to mention that the world will be forever rid of those annoying people who love to point out that nothing rhymes with orange and permanently replaced with a new generation of even more annoying people who will love to point out that “splorange,” a certain energy state of condensed quark matter, in fact, rhymes with it.
