Happy Higgs Boson Freedom Day!
It’s official – CERN scientists have announced that they’ve discovered the Higgs Boson, the elusive little fella who is responsible for giving everything around us mass. The slideshow accompanying the announcement incorporated Comic Sans, much to the chagrin of the Internet, and even to the creator of Comic Sans himself.
To celebrate, those in the US should attend large parties where you consume a lot of food in an attempt to gain mass. The rest can watch this enlightening video in which science writer Ian Sample explains the Higgs Boson using a tray and some ping pong balls.
