Not sure which of those two I feel more drawn to.
I like the second one.
I just thought it was funny, comic sans isn't standard, someone must have set it to that and that nice blue colour.
i think someone was having a joke.
That was the Higgs Bozo
so let me get this right,
they have found a boson which may or may not be the one belonging to higgs and there has been no black hole which will destroy the earth.
I have to say I'm slightly disappointed in the outcome of all this
Don't worry. Somewhere in the data they haven't yet examined in detail is the evidence that the boson was stolen from Dirac by Higgs, and thus there are holes in the standard model after all. After all the effort hawking the Higgs boson around it will be discovered that, due to all the physicists sitting on the fence, it's all been a complete waste of time, and that John Butler did it.
still not an earth destroying black hole though is it.
Glad I wasn't the only one
Cat takes off.
Bless you, have a tissue.
This one was settled by experiment long ago. The cat is bloody furious.
So much for the early techincal problems of the LHC actually being acts of sabotage from time travellers to prevent humanity from destroying itself
And, of course, the Higgs Boson is very easily Spoonerised into the Bigg Hoaxon.
Coincidence? I think not!
For some reason caption 1 of that IKEA mockup (with the little wooden stub thingies) made me cackle like an idiot .
Here is the Higgs Boson result converted, via some unfathomably complicated process, into a rather nice piece of music:
Explanation (sort of) here:
It's kind of tinkly. Who knew.
