Higgs boson walks into a church. The priest says, "We don't want your kind in here. We worship God, not 'god particles'!"

The Higgs boson replied, "Then how can you have mass?"

I like to think of myself as a pretty smart person, but whenever a physicist tries to explain particle physics to me I feel like my cat trying to comprehend internal combustion.

Wasn't Boson Higgs Sme's brother?

lohphat: THE GREAT NAME: .

On Ignore list just to improve the signal to nose ratio.


People who have to comment that they are putting you on ignore are always lying. Also, it's against Fark posting guidelines.

HIGGS BOMB technical info. Actual documents cannot be repoduced online due to ECHELON. Only a summary is given here.

Due to a loophole in the post-war treaty with GERMANY, they are not restricted from developing particle-level explosive devices. Much research has been carried out as black-experiments at CERN and in distributed computer modelling. As with earlier (ultimately unsuccessful) QUARK BOMB research, many of the theoretical problems have been solved UNKNOWINGLY by users of internet gaming sites, who were led to believe they were solving level puzzles in MMOs.

The initial trigger for the HIGGS BOMB is a kiloton-range Plutonium triggered fissile device, similar to the thermonuclear (or H-BOMB) device. This effectively replaces the large ring-accelarator needed at CERN etc. To convert the fissile device's gamma burst into the e+/e- particles required for the HIGGS REACTION, a resonant substrate of nano-structured Silicon is required.

This is time-consuming and expensive to produce, but experimentation has shown that the wafers from GB-range RAM DIMMs may be used if a 40% drop in device efficiency is acceptable (high-quality DIMMs are required: Apple-brand was tested among others). The silicon from 20,000 to 100,000 4GB DIMMs is sufficient for a 1000-megatonne device.

The emitted HIGGS BOSONS must be allowed to pass into a "tamper" made up of 25-50KG of Red Mercury to allow their energy to be released (before they decay into harmless fermions).

HIGGS BOMB resembles a large laptop on standard airport scanners, but can be reliably detected due to the weight in excess of 100Kg and the characteristic magnetic signature of the Red Mercury.

NAME already has blueprints for the first HIGGS BOMB.

From the energy of 125GeV, NAME predicts the HIGGS BOMB will be 1000 times more powerful than todays thermonuclear devices, that is 57,000 megatonnes.

NAME will stockpile these as a deterrent.

People should be afraid. They should be very afraid. I mean, seriously. The "god" in "god particle" is not the christian god. It is Shiva the Destroyer!

gerbilpox: I NEVER THOUGHT LOSING WEIGHT WOULD BE SO EASY!!
I LOST 1 GeV IN ONE WEEK ON NEW HIGGS DIET!!

SEND 10000$ TO MIRIAM ABACHA FOR THE SECRET
HOW TO GET GOD TO DECLARE YOU THIN!!


Warning: This is a scam. They make it sound easy, but it takes a lot of energy, and you wind up having to work your mass off.

This is July 4th, so how about abortions for some, and miniature American flags for others?

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.


Thus demonstrating someone else's intellectual superiority....why, that would be YOU, wouldn't it? You smart guy, you......
