    Default Proton, Electron, Neutron-Which Side and Why?

    What is says on the tin folks. Out of those three types of particle, pick a favorite and state why. Just those three please.

    I like electrons. They go where they like, they power the devices used to make this message, and not afraid of anyone.

    Bonus points for meme usage, so long as it obeys forum rules, of course.

    Newboys in the hood for the win!

    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
    Then there is my gaming YouTube page with Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and others.
    Finally, I stream on Twitch, mostly Kerbal Space Program and Minecraft.

    Oh wow, both of those were rather obscure and difficult to find.
    Heck, I'm not entirely sure what I found WAS the Newboys reference. My google-fu needs some work.

    Neutrons are ahead by 2 thus far (my vote doesn't count). No proton love? What gives?

    I know that at first sight it is not the most attractive choice, but the neutron is both an electron and proton in one convinent package and no extra charge.

    Neutrons. Because nothing says love like 83.14 TJ/kg & they don't care 'bout Φs and As.

    Electrons aren't afraid of anything? Yeah right, except for their brotha's. They also group hump every proton in sight.

    Not really one of the three options, but it's clever all the same.
    Neutron 4
    Electron 2
    Proton 1
    Positron 1

    Neutron is still in the lead. And Gold. And Silver. And most other things.

    So I'm going to give the noble proton another vote.

    They aren't wish-washy like those neutrons that can't even pick a charge, but they don't run about chaotically like electrons do.

    Besides, the protons decide what element they're going to be. Neutrons and electrons just go along with it.

    Easy, neutron all the way. At Their not afraid to join with their peers, you don't have to pick a side, they even care for those stupid protons to stick together which would otherwise not get along. (Thinking about this made me consider the problem of pure-neutron matter and I realized I really need to catch up on my particle physics...)
    Anyway, neutrons all the way. No contest.

    Technically, the electrochemical impulses in the human nervous system rely on calcium, potassium, sodium, and chloride ions. Most of those are missing some electrons.

    I'm going to stay neutron on this one.

    Aside from some hydrogen atoms (hydrogen is a little weird), neutrons are a very important part of an atom. As if trying to keep track of over 100 elements wasn't enough, neutrons add variety within an atom as well. Ahahah. Ahh. Science is fun.

    (If we were voting outside the three, I quite like quarks as well.)
