Exciting non-discovery from the LHC - ePepys

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

In my occasional efforts to keep you abreast of the latest results from the LHC, you might find this paper on heffalon production of interest - even if a day late. I thought the experimental methodology exceptionally robust, though there is an acknowledged fine-tuning problem with their theoretical model. C. Robin, W. T. Pooh, and Piglet will have to wait for the LHC energy upgrade in 2015 for their next chance at the Nobel (though I think it was Piglet alone who first proposed the heffalon hypothesis).

This month's edition of The Chap includes instructions for building a Medium Hadron Collider.

Colliding hadrons is easy. It is only that these irritating physicists want to collide them while they are moving quite briskly.

Yes...
Suggesting that the heffalon can fully explain dark matter is also a little far fetched. At best it would only explain a fraction.

I shall take the heffalon hypothesis extremely seriously. The reason: I have noticed that in the sciences, it is remarkably difficult to come up with an April Fool, however whimsical, that doesn't eventually turn out to contain some kind of truth.

Also, I feel they may tie up with my flying cows somehow!
