This is history of science, I'm very excited. Higgs himself was on the verge of tears at conference in Geneva.

Amazing.
True, amazing ...

And to add some fun-factor, I'd like to see Sheldon Cooper at the moment he learned the news

She fell asleep while saying "47".


My grandmother, many years ago, after waking up from anaesthesia was terrified by the hospital cooking, because she believed that German soldiers from WWII were in the kitchen...
That was funny. I don't know why, but you're kind of euphoric when you wake up.


Higgs boson... amazing stuff.

i have never experienced general anaesthesia. and never actually understood why many people avoid it or talk that much about it. i feel like it is just a normal sleeping. (but i know i am wrong )

Try to be operated while you're asleep and you'll wake up in no time.

Excuse me but what the hell is Higgs boson or bison?!?!?
Is it some random Polish dude named Higgs that have a Bison in his yard or what? What I know is that Bison is a only existing animal in Poland and maybe also Belarus, that had a ruff past and will probably have a ruff future too (like buffalo).

One of the scientists at the press conference explained it brilliantly:

"Imagine having a room full of journalists equally distributed across the room: that's the Higgs field. Now imagine an unimportant person traveling across the room: journalists will mind their own businesses so the uninmportant person will travel undisturbed (at the speed of light) across the room. Now imagine a very important person entering the room. Journalists will cluster around him and make him move slowly (less than the speed of light), and therefore he will acquire mass.
You saw that before, when professor Higgs entered this very room full of journalists, how heavy he became!"

Okay, but will this help our everyday life or something? What does this Higgs contribute to?

Science does not work this way. This is science, not technology.
Besides, 100 years ago you could also ask the same thing about another particle, the electron, without which now you cannot have electricity or electronic devices.

When I got my driver licence I had already driven on a motorway . Since then my longest drive on a motorway was some weeks ago when I went to Zaragoza with my car. When I was going back home I made a detour to see the Northern section of Zaragoza's 4th beltway (the one that is a motorway, where E90 and Z-40 are multiplexed). They have widened it in some sections to 2+3+3+2, and it is almost finished (Only one lane remains to open).

Does anyone around here have a car running on LPG? How is it? Does it worth it? etc...

I'm thinking about converting my dad's car on LPG...
