Oboy! I can't wait to hear what....... Oh wait, they've already told us what they're going to announce.

So, um, what's the point of Wednesday's announcement again?

128.

... and (assuming they have found it) after the party, someone raises the question: "Now what?"

I am surprised a thing as important as this would seem to have an archetypal English name likes Higgs . Anthony Higgs at school hit me so hard he broke his hand . If wondering we got on fine after that , I sort of won that one in the eyes of the other kids . It was over building a volcanic island in humanities ( daft name for too lazy to teach us a proper subject , hippy teachers ) . Still hear of him , still a bit moody . Perhaps Higgs is a pen name or just made up ? Hawking is English enough I suppose , maybe we Brits are not so stupid after all ?

Peter Higgs is a real person, who just happens to be named Peter Higgs. I know he is real because I once sat opposite him at lunch. He probably finds all the fuss about the Higgs field rather embarrassing, because he is just an ordinary theoretical physicist who had a bright idea. Others had similar ideas at about the same time.

We might be rubbish at football . However a little bit of physics and we are off . Well done Mr Higgs . I wasn't serrious about his name being made up . It is just so Monty Python . Mr Neutron who lives in Neasden if people remember that one ? How apt . Neasden has an Ikea !

Eh? I'm talking about spontaneous symmetry breaking etc., not transmutation.
