The photos of the “researchers” are very revealing. It looks more like a frat party, than a government research lab, but perhaps I’m confusing the two.
- The Big Bang Theory will always need technical consultants
- This is what happens when you discard that pesky unreal root
- They can cut their losses and put the LHC on Craigslist
Science is this wonderfully self-correcting enterprise,
Translation: Science is always guessing
“Of course, it is disappointing, Shifman said. Were not gods. Were not prophets. In the absence of some guidance from experimental data, how do you guess something about nature”
Well I guess they’re just going to have to go back to some of that Religious business again to get more ideas without actually crediting God for their inspirations...(sarcasm on)
Scientists need to get a clue...they need to include this equation into their algorithms if they ever want to get anywhere new and mind blowing... alpha=omega “the first and last”.
Then, someone won the race and all the losing physicists turned to other pursuits such as day-trading. Applying their minds to the trivial problems of moving money, stocks, bonds and derivatives around, they crashed all world markets in mere days creating the current eternal recession!
When the supersymmetry physicists move on, they possibly can get into some field that will reverse the recession!
Of note, the internet appears to have eaten away at all the potential blue laser profits, and is busily carving up cable TV
This is a great book, required reading.
Too early for them to be hitting the wall right now, they will hit it one day however.
These people put their professional lives to work on a theory and all they can say now is that it is wrong. That isn't a complete waste of life, because at least we now know it is wrong, but that is not something to cheer people up. But they seem to be handling it well. I prefer scientists acting like this than the thousands of political scientists who juggle the data any which way is necessary to get a grant, and will waste a career promoting junk science.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Nothing.
Inga: Oh, Doctor, I'm sorry.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No. No. Be of good cheer. If science teaches us anything, it teaches us to accept our failures, as well as our successes, with quiet dignity and grace.
Robert Lustigs Sugar: The Bitter Truth lecture "Fructose is ethanol without the buzz." Lustig is down on sucrose too because it's part fructose.It's almost 90 minutes, very well spent.
On the thread of the last link comment# 22 links a press release about rats getting fat on HFCS even though that diet had the same number of calories as rats that didn't get fat while also drinking a 10 % sucrose solution. Comment# 49 has a link about non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, NASH, aka non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, NAFLD, attributed to excess fructose. It correlates well with the use of HFCS. Comment# 62 has a link about the biochemistry and metabolism of fructose. Comment# 86 has the abstract about rats getting fat on HFCS with isocaloric diets compared to rats not getting HFCS. Comment# 88 has an abstract that shows lousy quality control in making beverages with HFCS-55. The concentration range was 47 - 65%.
FReepmail me if you want on or off my health and science ping list.

Then there is the real problem that there is a new but unpredicted particle and what do do with it or about it. The discovery is the particle the Sheldon described in a paper out of Cal Tech.
The Sheldon seems to be predictable on some levels but not understood at all on other levels. The Sheldon provides something to build on but popped up so unpredicted that no one is willing to go out on the limb of action to do the math proving that which is actually known to exist.
However I can truthfully agree with C3Po and comment “ It is beyond my capacity”
