I am using this cancer mask as my Avatar for a few weeks. If it makes even one person think about quitting cigarettes, it will be worth it. I smoked for 44 years and I knew from day 1, that they were bad for me. But still, the cigarette companies crank them out for kids while our governments, state and federal, gobble up the tax money and turn a blind eye. I never thought I would be an advocate for anything, much less cigarettes, but you have a lot of time to think laying on a metal table in a room with eight inch walls. Peace & Love
I have to be truthful, this Higgs Boson thing is a little over my head. I know James explained it, and he did a good job if you know anything about science. But for myself, I am not an Idiot Savant when it comes to science, I'm just an idiot. I loved history, English and even math until they replaced the numbers with letters, then I was lost.
I am sure, now that I've read more and more about it, that I had attention deficit disorder (ADD) as a child. I had a hard time keeping my mind on the teacher and the blackboard as a child. If anything moved, my attention went straight to whatever it was and I could not focus on the teacher. During science, biology and other courses, I would doodle in my notebook or stare out the window. When I was in sixth grade, I actually got into a fight with a teacher who threw me out of his class because I refused to quit looking out of the window. He grabbed me by my shirt, and it was on.
The principle suspended me and told me not to come back to school unless I had my parents with me. I'm an idiot, but I'm not stupid. I didn't go back. I just hung around with other screw-ups in the woods smoking cigs and bullshitting. I walked into my house one afternoon after acting like I had been in school all day and my dad was sitting at the table. He gave me the stink-eye and said, "I got a bone to pick with you". Uh-Oh! Busted. He went to school with me the next day, got me re-instated and grounded me for life. My dad never laid a hand on me. Never.
But now, as the title says, the below video is going to explain
"the God Particle" to everyone out there who were like me, science dummies. As a matter of fact, this video could be called, "Higgs Boson for Dummies". After viewing this video, you will be able to amaze your friends with your knowledge of this complicated subject. Read, watch, and you can thank me later.
