    Actually it’s the Higgs field, theorized to exist at every point throughout the universe, which gives particles mass in proportion to their interaction with that field. The Higgs boson is simply the smallest quantum of excitation of that field.

    Finding the boson proves the existence of the field though, so as Arlo so aptly put it, it’s a Big Deal.

    Janis is just pulling his leg, though. Pretty funny, Mrs. Day!

    I want to know if there’s an Anti-Higgs…

    Hmm? A Higgs-Bosun diet in the offing? Forget counting calories or carbs.

    Wow! That explains how and why the improbability drive works.

    Arlo, it’s the same as the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin. One of the aleph numbers, I forget which.

    Nicola Tesla preferred the ether theory over the electron theory. Maybe both are right.

    Best way to illustrate particle wave theory is to use a garden hose. Turn it on and wave it back and forth. It looks like you’re making the stream wavy, but all the water drops are going in a straight line….particle waves….
