Well, remember Cindy’s Cinco de Mayo party last year? Hydrogen was just eating proton after proton, being a total pig, remember? Well, Julie was in line for the bathroom later, and heard all these retching and gagging noises, right? She knocked on the door, to see if everything was OK, and then out comes hydrogen, as if nothing had happened. There was still a half-digested neutron on hydrogen’s chin!
It was SO gross. But that’s why hydrogen is the lightest of all the elements.
