OK, the Higgs Boson (A.K.A. "The God Particle") was found over the July 4th holiday at CERN labs in Geneva, Switzerland, through the CMS & Atlas teams.
I'm not sure if you watched the ENTIRE press conference, and then the two-part seminar [Part One | Part Two], but between painting my deck puke green, then painting it back to sexually frustrated blue, and taking brief catnaps through the War and Peace audio book, I found myself asking (myself), "WHAT the hell are they talking about?" Obviously I didn't understand ONE DAMN THING...but I digress.
So with all that said I say HOORAY! This is great news, albeit the discovery confirmation is still up in the air (so-to-speak). Now, if we can find the "Miracle Particle" (the particle that causes "Miracles" to happen), debunk it, then figure out how to eradicate the "Stupidity Gene," we will be WELL on our way to eliminating irrational ideas, and activities, done by ignorant non-critically thinking people, based on fabricated stories. WHAT, too soon?
I hope all the scientists can now have a bo-higgy higgy-tastic week with this news.
One last thing, a special request: please let me know if particle physicists have their own dance similar to the Crip walk. Put it on Youtube please.
DOUBLE "G's" ya'll! ;-)
