They can lose the DATA about Higgs Boson. To help prevent such possibility, I would like to mention that the found Higgs Boson energy is between 125 and 126 GeV/c^2 Hkmaly (talk) 12:18, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

It may be nitpicking because of the 'equivalancy of mass and energy', but isn't the term GeV/c2 usually used to describe a particle's mass while GeV is used to describe its energy?--Dangerkeith3000 (talk) 15:29, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, felt it better to change "play 'hide and seek' with" to "know the current location of", because it read too as too anthropomorphic for the tone of the explanation. Like I don't play hide-and-seek with my house-keys, when they're temporarily unlocated. (Unless the world is weirder than I'm aware of, and the voices in my head are right after all!) Apologies if the hyperbole was the intent, and feel free to revert. 14:53, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

The 4th paragraph begins with "Meagan's mention that "The death isn't even very serious"...". Shouldn't it be Ponytail, not Meagan? -- 16:28, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Or Cueball. Changing to "The comment..." 17:36, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Though of course this is a comic and not an actual transcript of a news conference or proceedings determining actual grant money, is there something significant missing or unanswered about the Higgs Boson that would require significantly more money (for e.g. a BIGGER COLLIDER!!!!!!!!)? Or is this rather a play at the "Find/Found" difference, and Randall just used the Higgs to make the point? I believe last I heard they found something that must be it, but I suppose further study was required to confirm it (or something)... Brettpeirce (talk) 20:37, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Maybe they just precisely determined it's momentum? -- Craignelson7007 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I don't read the "just one" reference as being just one death - "... to build a death ray.' 'Just one, though.'" certainly sounds like they built just one death ray. 03:11, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
