"Tantalising Hints of the Elusive Higgs Boson"

The Scientific Editor of this blog was delighted today to hear on the BBC news that scientists at the Large Hadron Collider, near Geneva, have found "tantalising hints"of the Higgs Boson. They haven't actually seen one yet, but as I said in the title, it's elusive. It probably only comes out when it's pretty sure nobody'll be observing it.
So what have they found?

Soubriquet Labs once had a similar problem, something was stealing food, chewing through wrappers, desecrating cheese.
How did I confirm it? Droppings.
I can confidently predict that the Cern scientist have found Higgs Boson poo in the Large Hadron Collider.

SOUBLAB, always willing to help fellow seekers-after-truth, has today dispatched a crate full of 'Little Nippers' to CERN.
The Little Nipper 

Them pesky Higgs Bosons won't know what's hit 'em.
Plan B involves letting Schroedingers cat out.


  1. Heyyyyyy! I was going to post about that! Damn you beat me to it. Let's hope they open the right box when they let Schroedinger's cat out ...


  2. If they have found traces of this thing does this mean it is broken?

  3. RDG: Ah: The old multiple box conundrum? In a multiple cat experiment would all Schroedingers cats be synchronised? Or would opening multiple boxes always get you a high chance of at least one live cat?
    Agh. My brain just exploded.

  4. Broken Bosons? a frightening thought.

    And to think, we're just a consonant away from Higgs' Bosom.

  5. this is the best post i've seen in a while. I'm slackjawed.
