When is a Bottom Synonymous With Beauty?

Here's a scientific riddle.

Q: "When is a Bottom synonymous with Beauty?"

A: "When it's a quark."

I was thoroughly enjoying Mark Zastrow's piece on about a newly discovered giant exoplanet  and why it is called b.Centauri b. when I was diverted in both senses of the word by his mention of a Very Large Telescope.

Rejoicing in the glorious, understated imagination of astronomers when it comes to descriptive language, particularly with regard to the "Large", I nipped off to check on the  Large Hadron Collider, and came across the gem of  that a "bottom quark" is another name for a "beauty quark".

Moreover, a bottom quark (or beauty quark) can be unpredictable. It has been known to behave badly! 

For those of us with less astral interests, we're still thinking about well-shaped, even large, buttocks, which leads to the copyright-law related topic --naturally-- of product placement.

Legal blogger Jack Greiner --of Graydon Head & Ritchey LLP, on his highly acclaimed, award-winning Jack Out Of The Box blog-- discusses Awkward Product Placement. To wit, putting actor Chris Noth's butt on a Peloton without permission....and then killing him off (fictionally).

Great minds from Baker Hostetler LLP also found the story apparently irresistible. Amy Ralph Mudge's views on publicity, and when it is better to build on a sensational story rather than to sue, are great.

Disclaimer, lest something thinks I am pumping it: I bought Peloton (PTON) stock on Friday...pretty much close to the bottom of the day.

All the best,

Rowena Cherry
