Eye Thangk Yew!

By Mike Cunningham On July 4th, 2012

 

A Higgs Boson goes into a church.  The priest says “We don’t allow Bosons in here”.  “Ah” says the Higgs “If I’m not here, you can’t have Mass.”

  1. !! Good one.

  2. A boffin on Sky News just now has said that “this opens up a whole new frontier of research.”

    The consequence for tax victms is “a whole new frontier of funding”.

  3. maybe Mr Diamond can donate some of his 20 million to science?

  4. Pete,
    I suspect that new funding may well disappear into a government sponsored Black Hole…

    May the Farce be with you.

    You mean just like the old funding didn’t? After all it just resulted in a big advance in the frontiers of human knowledge.

    We can see how the alternative option panned out by looking at Texas, which likely would have made this discovery 10 years earlier, and who knows what else by now, if they hadn’t canned the budget for it:

    Instead, Texans have their money while it’s European tax-victims who have been robbed of billions.

    I know who won that one.

  7. Pete would be happy still living in a stone age cave rubbing sticks together as long as there was no such thing as taxes 🙂

  8. Did the discovery of fire require a government grant?

    No?

    I win.

  9. Pete

    No it required 2 grants… being rubbed together 😉
