I am disappointed.

I am sure there is a coverup responsible.

They call it the god particle because without it, catholics can't have mass.

When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.

Ya, it is pretty neat. I'm intrigued to say the least - of course - military and energy yielding applications aside (to some, that preclusion begs the question "than what's left?!?!?"), it's high time we got deeper into the unknowns.

Very cool stuff.

It's okay because I was mocking it.

I'm almost certain there is a thread about the Higgs boson on NBR, but I'll need a more time before I can say so with 100% certainty.

I'm just waiting for the tired and naive, "why won't anyone think of the children and homeless?! We should be giving this money to them!!/1!" reply.

Ya I'm pretty excited about the possibilities. But frankly thought posting anything about it here might be an exercise in frustration along those lines. Anyone who is really excited about it already knows.

It is pretty cool that they have closed in on evidence so quickly with the LHC, but it is hard to get too excited because it already seemed so certain to exist. It wasn't something new and wild that they just found. It is the difference between looking for your gold bar that you are pretty sure is in your desk drawer vs opening your desk drawer and finding a gold bar.

Thrill me better nerds!!!

That's kind of an amazing humanity story in and of itself though. We (meaning many many countries involved) threw countless resources into building this giant machine to find a fundamental building block of reality, and found exactly what we were looking for (more or less). That actually doesn't happen so often and says a lot about how good we've become at scientific theory.

The fact that we did it so fast just means we're becoming increasingly good at engineering as well I suppose. Not a bad thing.
