What is Heavier Than You Thought?

Post by Doctor X »

No, not YOUR MOM, but that is still true, probably, definitely, I mean, when you consider how the fabric of space-time conforms to her [Get on with it! – Ed.]

Right!

W Boson!

Evidences:
The measurement is the first conclusive experimental result that is at odds with one of the most important and successful theories of modern physics.

The team has found that the particle, known as a W boson, is more massive than the theories predicted.

The result has been described as "shocking" by Prof David Tobak, who is the project co-spokesperson.

The discovery could lead to the development of a new, more complete theory of how the Universe works.

"The world is going to look different," he told BBC News. "There has to be a paradigm shift. The hope is that maybe this result is going to be the one that breaks the dam.

So, Your Mom is made of W bosons?

Did you factor in the weight of guilt of having to slaughter all those ducks to make a pound of feathers for a third grade science experiment?

She has two bosons.

They're long and noodly.

The best part is that, unlike liver, duck does actually go well with Chianti.*

For liver, he should really have gone with a red -- a Syrah or a Malbec, perhaps.






* Merlot would also be acceptable.

Pinot Noir is the default accompaniment for Duck. Chianti as you mention is perfectly marvellous. However, if you seek perfection, grab a Montepulchiano.

Merlot? Maybe. Depends how heavy it is.

Liver? A good Bordeaux. Hands down.

Haaaaaaaands down.

I can't emphasize enough, Bordeaux is terrible for your liver. Hands down.
