Have you ever thought about what a stupid name for the beginning of the universe the "Big Bang" is? It's like some scientist gave up while trying to explain it to his wife:

"You see the infinite density and pressure of matter at a finite time in the past resulted in the rapid isotrophic expansion of matter, which caused a massive cosmic inflation, at which point the universe was composed predominantly of quark-gluon plasma, within which particle-antiparticle pairs were being continuously created and destroyed in collisions... You know what sweetie, it was just a Big Bang."
