Ah, Samuel L. Jackson. “I’m tired of people sayin’ god particle. Nobody say god particle on this mother f in plane”! And it looks like Steven Hawking just lost $100.00 on a bet.

OK, what’s going on with this site?  Did you notice that when each of us tried to show a laughing smiley, we just got the standard letter things.  I’ll try it both ways and see how it works.  First the letters - LOL  Second using the link at the upper left of the post   LOL

Well, neither of them work.  Guess we’ll have to ask the computer gurus to fix it.

Now I’m boing to go through the smiley list and see if any of them show up.  grin  LOL  cheese  smile  wink  smirk  rolleyes  confused surprised  big surprise  tongue laugh tongue rolleye tongue wink raspberry blank stare  long face  OK. I’m getting tired.

None of them work.  Interesting.

Damn, I figured a way around this.  I’d go back to some ancient post and lift the smiley from that.  However, even very old posts no longer show smileys, just the symbols that are supposed to generate them.

Well maybe the smileys just went on strike!  And I wouldn’t blame them one bit, the way people just throw them around, push on here into this thread, and there into that thread, never with any real appreciation of their lemon yellow beauty, they joy that they can impart uplifting one’s day, the abuse that the endure when people say things like “Go to h-e-double hockey sticks” and end that with a false smiley… welllll we’ll just see how everyone likes it when they’re all gone!  THEN the smileys will show the users a thing or two, THEN people will learn to appreciate them for what they’re really worth! 

Ah, ha ha ha ha ha (resorting to onamonapia, without the decorative smileys around.)

As for the Higgs, good for the Standard Model.  smile

Good find, CC. That is as simple an explanation that I have seen.

so tell me Darron anything interesting happen at that other thread
it’s going ballistic again and gotta admit the temptation to peek is great, but I have promised myself not to add to the count… or the madness…
... unless of course something interesting were actually happening over there.
