Please skim this article here. The crucial paragraph: "But the good news for scientists, and eventually for you, is that the existence of this particle has been proven, that it’s almost certainly the Higgs Boson and that means the Standard Model of quantum mechanics is correct. This in turn means that resources can be focused on this part of quantum mechanics. Eventually those resources can be used to describe the Higgs Boson more exactly and to determine how it manages to impart mass on other particles and what it is about other particles that makes them more or less affected by the Higgs field and the virtual particles that comprise it."
Where you spend your money.
Do you want your hard-earned money to go toward a project that's investigating the (at best) tenuous relationship between mass and short-lived particle now labeled 'a Higgs'? The media representatives cannot even say THE Higgs.. They must necessarily label it A Higgs (meaning there may be more than one). ^^ Wtf? It's a JOKE, right? ..Just because you find some empty containers near your favorite beverage outlet does not mean those containers CAUSED your beverages to exist.. It's laughable, right? ^^ Am I brain-dead or what?!?
