Scientists at Cern will announce that the elusive Higgs boson 'God Particle' has been found at a press conference next week, it is believed. Five leading theoretical physicists have been invited to the event on Wednesday - sparking speculation that the particle has been discovered. Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are expected to say they are 99.99 per cent certain it has been found - which is known as 'four sigma' level.

Unless you hire a union to do the looking. They will keep looking after it’s been found.

These days "pret near" is good enough for guys who want to claim they've discovered the Higgs.

Oh, joy, frabulous joy. Vorpel blades are going snickersnack everywhere today.

Or, maybe not. In physics if there's the slightest doubt, then that's where all the new discoveries will be made. As Clarence Carter would say, "suppelspicous".

One of my all time favorite characters. Growing up I wondered if there were any reality behind the Jab', and then I found out the Jab' is the ONLY reality!

That's gotta' be the revelation that takes a person from childhood to adulthood in one fell swoop!

If the error is so glaring to the likes of us, it makes you wonder if they even have “editors” anymore.

I know! I mean, I am an engineer, not an English major!

Higgs boson ‘God Particle’

I thought scientists didn’t believe in God. Shouldn’t it be the Evolution particle?

Are they going to look for the atheist particle now?

That’s all well and good, but I’m satisfied to continue my worship of Obama. I just don’t think some particle will be very effective in getting me free stuff, even if it IS on the same, cool, God-level as Barack.

They would, but there's no substance to it.

See what you get when you post an interesting scientific article? Maybe you will think twice before you do so again.
