Sin at CERN

New York Times May 17, 2007

"The culprit is quantum weirdness, one principle of which is that anything that is not forbidden will happen. That means the Higgs calculation must include the effects of its interactions with all other known particles, including so-called virtual particles that can wink in and out of existence, which shift its mass off the scale."

Unlike Saturday night in San Francisco where anything that IS forbidden will happen.

    Oh, those wild Higgs bosons! You never know what they'll do next.
