God Particle and Large Hadron Collider

Well, apparently the Large Hadron Collider will finish it’s research on the Higgs Boson.  Of course this will tell whether or not the Higgs Boson particle exists, but that’s not what I want to write about.  Of course this will be a monumental milestone in theoretical physics, but there there really isn’t much room to have an opinion besides believing that there will be a God particle and there isn’t a God particle, which won’t matter in a couple of months.

Before this announcement, the research was supposed to happen near the end of 2012.  That would have been too perfect.  We take fools that believe that the world’s going to end in 2012, and then we tell them we’re going to finish using a city sized machine that creates black holes and smashes atoms at the speed of light.  That would have been so wonderful.  Of course that’s not a real reason to post-pone the end date, but what a spectacle that would have been.
