AdolfOliverPanties: Watched the cartoon. Well done. Still completely lost.I want to know where the word boson came from.

Wayne 985: I still can't help but think that most Americans won't get this on any level. I can just imagine people reading a headline and assuming scientists discovered God or something.
david_gaithersburg: So if there is a God particle does this mean that there is a god?
proteus_b: If you were thinking "what's the difference between a animation and a cartoon and can someone explain it to me in words?", you may want to hold off on submitting for a while.
5 Cent Monkey: Wayne 985 - it's the opposite - I'm curious how this discovery disproves God.
The Green Intern: I'm still lost, and I feel like an idiot for being lost.I get that it's a major event. I understand that it's going to have profound effects on our understanding of just about everything related to the physical world. But what does it mean on an applied level? Does it give clues to FTL travel? Atomic-scale transistors? Macro-scale atoms? Someone told me that it proves the weak nuclear force and magnetism are the same thing on different scales. If that's the case, could we build atomic structures like lego bricks? Hold structures together with magnetic mortar?I appreciate and applaud the fact that it was found and indicates the existence of the Higgs Field, but there's been so much build-up over this thing and what seems to be little explanation of what it means beyond "validation of a theory"./nttawwt
boozehat: 40 billion collisions a second? 24x7x365?! Holy fark that's a lot of data!!!I had no idea. That's pretty biatchin.
FuturePastNow: I don't know why, but I can never get Vimeo videos embedded in other sites to play. I always have to go to the video's own page.
snocone: This is amazing!Exactly what we thought is correct and it shows, nay, demands we do more research and need moar money.

phalamir: We found the body, and can stop looking. it isn't going to likely do anything spectacularly different - it's existence has always been part of the Standard Model, so nothing "changed" today. The more likely game-changer will be when the LHC pops out something we don't expect
namatad: Link~15 petabytes/year - only 15,000 TB/year .... 40 TB/daySounds like the average TFers porn collection.
