Last week I was fortunate enough to take a tour of CERN, aka the European Organization for Nuclear Research. (Organisation européenne pour la recherche nucléaire to all you french folks). And while I can’t rehash everything I learned, I can leave you with a joke I was told:
A Higgs Boson walks into a church on Christmas Eve, and is quickly spotted by the Priest. The Priest sternly says, “You’d better leave-we don’t believe in your kind here.”
"Suit yourself", said the Higgs Boson. "But without me you can’t have mass"
