[LiveScience] Mysterious Particle Found After Decades of Searching - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Is this a new particle, if so this will pretty much break the standard model. If it's just a bunch of particles behaving like a majorana fermion it's not such a big deal.

1. The use of words to express something different from and often opposite to their literal meaning.
2. An expression or utterance marked by a deliberate contrast between apparent and intended meaning.
3. A literary style employing such contrasts for humorous or rhetorical effect.

1. Incongruity between what might be expected and what actually occurs: "Hyde noted the irony of Ireland's copying the nation she most hated" (Richard Kain).
2. An occurrence, result, or circumstance notable for such incongruity.
Your post doesn't attempt to be ironic, as it's far from the literal meaning. You said, "+1 if you came here for Higgs Boson." That has nothing to do with irony, and using words you don't understand makes you look silly.

Now you look silly trying to be analytical all over a post that was supposed to be for laughs. thumb.gif

Well great, you were able to give him the definition of irony.

On the other hand I came here because I wanted to read about physics, but please if i've somehow failed with my English do point that out to me as well.
I like what he put, irony is a word used wrong a lot. If I said honestly cared about that though, i'd be lying.

OT: Like many I came here thinking it was the Higgs Boson. I'm not disappointed that it isn't, this just gives me another chance to learn even more about our universe. I hope we continue to discover these things, they really put my existence into perspective on the grand scale of things.

Anyone else find it kind of intriguing that the guy who predicted the particle in question "mysteriously" disappeared? Seriously, what was with the 1930s and this MASSIVE leap forward in knowledge only to be followed by much smaller baby steps. (Insert the obligatory meme of the ancient aliens dude saying "Aliens.")

Of course, it is a utopia to believe we will ever be able to explain it but neither you or me know what the future is holding.

Holy crap guys chill. The point being made was valid. It is quite difficult for the fish to understand the fishbowl. There are fundamental limits to our degree of understanding given our inability to observe the Universe from a removed perspective. This is a widely known and well documented issue that can arise from observational research. Let's get our feet back on the ground before we fly into esoteric space.

how about not being a sensationalist wannabe? "Mysterious Particle Found After Decades of Searching" is a lie, what you should have called the thread is "Majorana fermion particle may have been found", simple enough?

if there only was a -rep button...

This is why we havent solved the universe. Just saying.

Well if there was at least we could quantify negative infinity from my rep. For science.
