LHC scam

  [vote for,

I mean, how do we know they needed all that stuff to find the Higgs Boson?

For all we know, they found a Higgs Boson stuck to the bottom of someone's shoe back in 2004.

The tunnels are not filled with x amount of hi-tech stuff, it's just a load of flashing lights and bacofoil, they sold off all the copper to scrap dealer in Bratislava via the back door...

       I'm just following on from the precedent of the Manhattan Project, the name itself giving the game away.   

       Oppenheimer after discovering, in his Manhattan apartment, it was easy to enrich uranium with nothing more than an old coffee percolator, two rabbit-shaped jelly moulds and an AA battery, contacted the state department.   

       Desperate to prevent the Nazis getting hold of this information an entirely bogus plant "$2 billion, eighty-six thousand tons of silver, and twenty-four thousand skilled workers..." was set up in the desert for Nazi spies to spy on and so create a false trail. Meanwhile the main base of production remained Oppenheimer's apartment in Manhattan, where the uranium was smuggled out in old milk bottles.   

       Of course it was the Soviets who nearly gave the game away, with their samovar-based version, it was easier, and they were rebuked for merely having "fifty scientists, and a mere two mathematicians" in their own faked plant.   

       I mean how else would the Soviets have caught up so quickly with the West otherwise? Why is it every time CIA operatives find centrifuges on their way to Iran can't help sniggering?

       Son - "I better stop because I have a Higgs Boson stuck to the bottom of my shoe" - looks down and there's a small pic of a large prostitute, that has somehow become detached from a magazine and fallen on the floor only to become stuck with chewing gum to the heel. Father - "Look again. That's not a Higgs Boson, that's a big ho son"   

       (I am willing to submit to public execution)

       Nope, that's just the proson, yet another fundamental particle found stuck to the bottom of someone's shoe. You read if first here, or somewhere else.

       Your suspicion is supported by the fact that just an elite really understands the Higgs boson theory and the need of the LHC

       Is there a relationship between Higgs Bosons, and Bogons?
