Thanks so much for uploading this little animated cartoon, Golden. I actually understood it. . . kinda. Well, at least I now have a much better idea of what they're really talking about, and I appreciate that! It's also pretty staggering to see how much information we still don't know!

how do you think that mankind is going to benefit from this?

Well it shows that the Standard Model is correct, and that we don't have to go back to the drawing board and draw up the laws of physics again.

It's like opening a toolbox and saying, "Good, I do have a screwdriver with me". Nobody can predict the impact of the discovery. It will lead to a better understand of the weak and strong forces in the Standard Model, and even on to the understanding of dark matter in the Universe or other undreamed practical benefits. Even maybe the possibility of manipulating the Higgs Boson, so we could control inertia and cutting back on our depletion of fossil fuels.

Is ignorance really that bliss?
While ignorance is not necessarily bliss, there is some knowledge that doesn't bring bliss either. I'm not saying that this fits into that category, but ignorance comes in all shapes, forms and sizes.

For those of you that believe that this is a good way to spend taxpayer money, I know that there is nothing that I can say to dissuade you, but that doesn't deter me from expressing what I believe, regardless of how ignorant that you believe that it is.

No worries mate!

Yes, there is so much we don't yet know, and I think that's what also makes it so exciting......!

The discovery of the Higgs bosun can be likened to the importance of the discovery of the electron in 1897. I'm sure no-one at the time realised the implications, or cared, yet barely 115 years later it has changed the very way we live, and is responsible for the reason you and I can sit here, using computers to debate the merits of scientific discovery.

If that doesn't excite you, nothing ever will.
