Thanksgiving week

Let's kick it off with something we can all agree on.

Where's the love? Why, it's right here...

Who needs the supernatural? We have physics and the Higgs boson.



You can read more about the theory from The Niels Bohr Institute and physicists Nielsen and Ninomiya here.

So what do I think? That they are are in a minute minority of physicists, the LHC will finally get going (starting this Friday, incidentally), many new discoveries will come out of it in the next few years, and we'll all enjoy the fruits of the paltry $6 billion that has been invested so far.

I'm just pissed at America for letting this project slip away from us. We were supposed to have had this supercollider in Texas and it should have been built a decade ago. More economic and intellectual loss that can be laid at the feet of conservatives.

If it causes the end of the universe, it will be a more interesting end than the one hypothesized by any religion. In case I don't get the chance to say it - thanks for all the times you stopped by here to read or watch videos.
