I dislike words like quark and quantum
you can keep 'em if you want ‘em
Here’s a few more I’d avoid:
Obliquity and Damacloid.
The words that deal with time and space
just put a scowl upon my face!
(read them at your own risk!)
Quark – Any of a set of six hypothetical elementary particles together with their antiparticles thought to be fundamental units of all baryons and mesons but unable to exist in isolation.
Quantum – The smallest quantity of radiant energy, equal to Planck's constant times the frequency of the associated radiation.
Obliquity – The angle between the plane of the earth's orbit and that of the celestial equator, equal to approximately 23° 27′ at present.
Damacloid – A group of unusual asteroids that are inactive nuclei of Halley’s Comet and other long-period comets, and have been found to have a retrograde orbit, unlike other types of asteroids.
