The Higg's boson sounds a lot like the midi-chlorians from the Star Wars films. May the Force be with you. Maybe George got it right.

Interesting video. He forgot to mention that we haven't actually found a Higgs bosun yet. That is what they hope to do using the new Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

Er: change bosun for boson. We know bosuns are found in rickety gin mills in cruddy ports. Or living in the crew's quarters.

otherwise, +1

So what is the penalty for violating the law of conservation of energy?

Nice waste of money. There is no benefit to mankind if we learn anything about a boson. I've worked with lots of high energy physicists. They have no clue that science is about alleviating human pain and suffering.
