So they spend millions on CERN, wouldn't it have been better to spend this money on Cancer, Parkinson's or Alzheimer research?

Cern scientists reporting at conferences in the UK and Geneva claim the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson.
The particle has been the subject of a 45-year hunt to explain how matter attains its mass.
Both of the two Higgs-hunting experiments at the Large Hadron Collider have reached a level of certainty worthy of a "discovery".
More work will be needed to be certain that what they see is a Higgs, however.
BBC News - LHC claims new particle discovery

So they might have found it

Yep, it would seem. Lots of verification will be taking place, but this looks really good. Finally, we know what gives mass to everything..........

I read a while back that they discovered a subatomic particle that travels faster than the speed of light. This created a huge headache for the scientists as they would have to revise all of Einstein's equations that are based on the speed of light because there is an even greater speed that has been discovered.

No that was a false positive.

Funny

I bet the men behind this think thier so clever yet they still can't explain how space goes on forever, and for that matter they still can't explain why I can't walk through brick walls.

However theyre "scientific" knoledge is far beyond mine which I guess I should give them credit for, what makes me angry however is scientists say things like the big bang and evolution yet we still don't even understand what dirt is made of, I know that sounds over the top but it's true. hmm

Good on them for trying anyway but shouldn't this money be going to greece and america or more importantly starving african children!

End of rant.

Space goes on "forever" because galaxies are accelerating away from one another as observed by Hubble.

You can't walk through brick walls because you aren't strong enough.

Dirt is made of minerals, minerals are made up of combinations of elements, elements are a product of nucleo-sythesis in stars.

No, money shouldn't go to economies that spend more than they make - thats called a deficit, and when it gets very large, there are big problems for everyone.

Many people have donated to African countries where starvation is at epidemic proportions; sadly, however, much of that was squandered by the governments that took direct ownership of these monies. Aid agencies have got smarter about this sort of thing, thankfully, and ensure most of the money is invested directly in self-help schemes, better farming practices, clean water supply etc.
