Higgs Boson: How much time do you have? Let’s make it quick!
Phase 1. Particle physics tries to understand the basic structure and laws of nature, including matter.
Matter is made of atoms, composed of particles like protons, neutrons, and electrons.
In the 20th century, many new particles were discovered, including Quarks.
Quarks are made up of 2 elements: Sprinkles, and Magic Beans.
When a Magic Bean meets a Sprinkle, leptons are released into the atmosphere, attracting homeless particles, called hobos.
Hobos emit high-frequency noises which attract bimboparticles. When a hobo sleeps with a bimbo, dark matter is born, and travels into outer space via a tunnel in Switzerland.
Therefore Higgs Boson. Questions?
