DENVER The discovery of the Higgs boson is real. But physicists are cagey about whether the new particle they've found will fit their predictions or not.
So far, the data suggest that the Higgs, the particle thought to explain how other particles get their mass, is not presenting any surprises, physicists said here Saturday at the April meeting of the American Physical Society. But that doesn't mean that it won't in the future or that there might not be other Higgs bosons lurking out there.
"There's a large number of theoretical models that predict, actually, that this Higgs field is more complicated," said Markus Klute, a physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Some of these theories predict five or more Higgs bosons of different masses, Klute told reporters.

Smacks of justifying more research money.
I’m sure that’s part of it.
Just a thought here, who knows how many particles and of what kind God put in his recipie for the creation of the Earth!
Gives new meaning to Only God Knows!
Oh .. never mind ...
A few months back they claimed to have violated einstein’s speed limit, and it turned out to be some cat-5 coiled up behind someone’s desk.
I smell a new jobs program.
I want to build a supercollider in my backyard. I’ll look for the Higgs boson.
I think I have a pretty good chance to get a federal grant because I’m a Native American.
Go for it.
No need for machines, just look under the couch and say you need more money to really find anything.
Regardless, the next question will be, “what particles are these particles made of”?
is that a real sign SC?
It's turtles all the way down.
Silly String Banned In Hollywood This Halloween - official website of THE LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn recently signed a council-backed ordinance (LAMC Section 56.02) to ban Silly String in Hollywood on Halloween night. The ordinance was introduced and championed by Los Angeles City Council members for Hollywood, Eric Garcetti and Tom LaBonge in direct response to the requests of Hollywood Boulevard property owners.
The Higgs Boson... The God Particle...
Found two so far... One more and they’ll have discovered the Holy Trinity...
