Splash du Jour: Friday

It was as if, in nuclear terms, the configuration of forces had changed and he was no longer an oppositely charged particle attracted to her from a great distance but a particle with like charge, a proton repelled by this other proton until they were right next to each other and the strong nuclear force came into its own and bound them together.
-- From Strong Motion, by Jonathan Franzen --

Have a great Friday!
