Once upon a time in a galaxy really close, the paths of two hydrogen atoms came very close to converging. Hydrogen Atom A apparently sloughed off a few electrons and was somewhat destabilized in his orbit. Hydrogen Atom B continued unabated in his trajectory as a stable nuclide with no neutrons and no commentary.
As a witness to this event an uninvolved Atom remarked "Oh, well. just stay positive" : )
"Give someone a bike and they may travel efficiently, but teach someone to unicycle and they can feed the soul for the rest of their life."
