" Smashing" Josh

Is there a "particular" reason for the use of the word particularly I wonder?

Monbiot looks like a sperm...

"Monbiot looks like a sperm"...Jimmy Haigh...I doubt if he would even be useful as one of those

A Higgs Boson goes into a church. The priest says “We don’t allow Bosons in here”.
”Ah” says the Higgs “If I’m not here, you can’t have Mass.”

"We don't serve neutrinos in here" said the barman.
A neutrino walks into a bar.

Particle spotted at the BBC, courtesy of UEA no less...

The Higgs has zero isospin. The IPCC, the team, assorted hangers-on and the media have guaranteed that the Catastrophe boson is a massless spin 2 particle. Massless because the Catastrophe force has unlimited range and spin 2 because the Catastrophe field by definition admits a boson of maximum spin.

BTW, I was fortunate enough in 1980 to attend a semester of post-grad lectures on QCD/SU(3) by Prof Tom Kibble at Imperial. If five sigma has been achieved, he should join Prof Higgs and others in receiving the Nobel Prize. And join the ranks of other notable physicists such as Pachauri, Gore and Trenbath.

A neutrino walks into an Italian bar, surely.

"Misanthropy is the general hatred, mistrust or dislike of the human species or human nature" - almost a synonym of environmentalism.

And why do tachyons programme in Assembly Language?

Because it's faster than C.

Josh, this is brilliant!
