The upcoming Europhysics Conference on High-Energy Physics might reveal important findings from CERN's Large Hadron Collider. Most theoretical physicists expect the Higgs boson to weigh between 115 and 135 GeV. Since our planet didn't collapse into a super-dense particle the size of a pea, it could be that they haven't figured it out yet. But perhaps they figured it out without destroying our planet. I'm betting an ounce of protoblood that it turns out to be 131.313131313 Gev.

This is the way the world ends... this is the way the world ends... this is the way the world ends...

I know people who are actually preparing for the 'end times.' You know, stockpiling supplies and buying shiny things to trade with. They will be ready when the world goes beyond Thunderdome. Y2K, the Mayan calendar, the hadron collider... yet another sign that the end is nigh. As far as I can tell, the end has been nigh since the beginning.

Actually, I thought the sign of the End Times was watching Kirstie Allie dancing on primetime TV, but maybe that's just me.....

EDIT: Scientists at the conference announced that maybe they will have an answer by the end of 2012:
