    You don’t want to know how many bosons there are in the cake!

    I do, Brewster, chocolate cake, to be exact.

    So Higgs Boson is the new pope?

    So that’s where my extra mass is coming from!
    I just have to cut down on my Higgs-bosons!

    Interaction with the Higgs field causes some particles to have mass, including protons, neutrons, and electrons. The Higgs field is also required to explain the extremely short range of the nuclear weak force. The unstable Higgs boson is the particle associated with the Higgs field, and it’s more straightforward to generate the Higgs boson (with very high energy colliders), and quickly detect it before it breaks down, than to try to directly measure the Higgs field.

    No, it’s made of chocolate. It should be called the Higgs bonbon.

    I think Brewster must be the Higgs Bozo!

    thank you, Mr. Wizard.

    we return you now to your regularly scheduled mind-numbing program

    The “God” particle is a misnomer.

    @MagicFan

    It is called the “Goddamn” particle.

    Physicists at Fermilab in Batavia, IL have been participating in the search for the Higgs Boson. A project on the 6800-acre Fermilab grounds is a restoration of the native prairie, including a herd of buffalo. Would it therefore be correct to refer to them as the Higgs Bison?

    Brewster, can I have some of your chocolate?
