I know there are some physicists who want to get rid of "big bang".

I like that physics uses simple terminology compared to many sciences. A lot of scientific nomenclature is just the descriptive name a 10 year old would come up with but translated into latin or greek to sound sophisticated....

Amazing, super, etc. especially when utilized used for something not so amazing.

Also, and I might have posted it before, but I’m posting it again, Gamechanger! Ugh
I hate the word "perfect" because it's often misused to refer to things that are just pretty damn good, even when there is obvious room for improvement. "Perfect" should mean no obvious flaws.

it's easy to write software with no obvious flaws. The trick is writing software with obviously no flaws. Now where did I read that?

“There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult.”
