"Saying what needs to be said about the most sucky parts of physics"
GREAT QUOTE TO LEAD OFF THIS ARTICLE... ONE OF THE WORST TO EVER PRETEND THEY ARE A PHYSICIST _SM (_STANDARD_MODEL) _QxD _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS _THF (The Higgs Fake) _BB (_BIG_BANG) This is a huge step toward unraveling Genesis Chapter 1, Verse 1 -- what happened in the beginning. This is a Genesis machine. It'll help to recreate the most glorious event in the history of the universe. - Michio Kaku, on the LHC _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) The Europeans and the Americans are not throwing $10 billion down this gigantic tube for nothing. We're exploring the very forefront of physics and cosmology with the Large Hadron Collider because we want to have a window on creation, we want to recreate a tiny piece of Genesis to unlock some of the greatest secrets of the universe. - Michio Kaku [Put a sock in it] _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) I've never seen a job being done by a five-hundred-person engineering team that couldn't be done better by fifty people. - C. Gordon Bell _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) An experiment is never a failure solely because it fails to achieve predicted results. An experiment is a failure only when it also fails adequately to test the hypothesis in question, when the data it produces don't prove anything one way or another. - Robert Pirsig [A third, even worse, category of failure is when an experiment is so poorly designed and/or operated and/or data processed that it gives completely false/useless/ fabricated results. To wit, particle smashing, that routinely finds particles that are. not. there.] _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS As soon as the circumstances of an experiment are well known, we stop gathering statistics. The effect will occur always without exception, because the cause of the phenomena is accurately defined. Only when a phenomenon includes conditions as yet undefined can we compile statistics. Therefore we compile statistics only when we can't possibly help it; for statistics can never yield scientific truth. - Claude Bernard [Tell that to the 3,000 working at the LHC...] _PP (_Particle_Physics) _G_HIGGS _G2 (_GRAVITY) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _THF (The Higgs Fake) Beware of the problem of testing too many hypotheses; the more you torture the data, the more likely they are to confess, but confessions obtained under duress may not be admissible in the court of scientific opinion. - Stephen M. Stigler GOOD _MT (_My_Theory) _LoS _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS Creative ideas do not spring from groups. They spring from individuals. - Alfred Whitney Griswold GOOD _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS _THF (The Higgs Fake) I am not accustomed to saying anything with certainty after only one or two observations. - Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) [The supposed Higgs particle was 'detected' with a grand total of two "bumps on a graph full of bumps".] _G_HIGGS _G2 (_GRAVITY) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _THF (The Higgs Fake) _PP (_Particle_Physics) I sometimes think about the tower at Pisa as the first particle accelerator, a nearly vertical linear accelerator that Galileo used in his studies. - Leon Max Lederman (1922-), "discovered" the muon neutrino, and one of the quarks [Yes, LHC is technology that is several hundred years old. Primitive. Brute force. Edison-like. Expensive. And corrupt.] HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! _G_HIGGS _G2 (_GRAVITY) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _THF (The Higgs Fake) I think the primary justification for this sort of science that we do is fundamental human curiosity. It's true, of course, that every previous generation that's made some breakthrough in understanding nature has seen those discoveries translated into new technologies and new possibilities for the human race. That may well happen with the Higgs boson. QUITE FRANKLY, AT THE MOMENT I DON'T SEE HOW YOU CAN USE THE HIGGS BOSON FOR ANYTHING USEFUL. - John Ellis _MS (_Math_Sucks) _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) I wish that one would be persuaded that psychological experiments, especially those on the complex functions, are not improved by large studies. The statistical method gives only mediocre results; some recent examples demonstrate that. The American authors, who love to do things big, often publish experiments that have been conducted on hundreds and thousands of people. They instinctively obey the prejudice that the persuasiveness of a work is proportional to the number of observations. This is only an illusion. - Alfred Binet, 1903 [Particle smashing is nothing if not statistical] _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _LOSERS_of_SCIENCE _LoS _HOSERS_of_SCIENCE _HoS _GORILLAS_of_SCIENCE _GoS I'm sorry for the poor fellows that haven't got labs to work in. - Ernest Rutherford [Are you sorry for the scientists who prefer not to be rock-smashers?] WOW! POTENT STUFF......... _UNS (_UNSOLVED/_222) _ST (_String_Theory) _SM (_STANDARD_MODEL) _QxD _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS _DE (_DARK_ENERGY) _DM (_DARK_MATTER) _DME (_Dark_Matter/_Dark_Energy) _BB (_BIG_BANG) _THF (The Higgs Fake) _CONSPIRATORS_of_SCIENCE _CoS Politicians, real-estate agents, used-car salesmen and advertising copy-writers are expected to stretch facts in self-serving directions, but scientists who falsify their results are regarded by their peers as committing an inexcusable crime. Yet the sad fact is that the history of science swarms with cases of outright fakery and instances of scientists who unconsciously distorted their work by seeing it through lenses of passionately held beliefs. - Martin Gardner, "Science: Good, Bad And Bogus", 1981 [Today virtually all physicists DELIBERATELY lie or condone the current scam -- _DM, _DE, _BB etc. -- to make an almighty BUCK.] HOW VERY TRUE...MORE MONEY IN BACKWARDNESS...JUST ASK MICROSOFT _UNS (_UNSOLVED/_222) _ST (_String_Theory) _SM (_STANDARD_MODEL) _QxD _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _HIGGS _DE (_DARK_ENERGY) _DM (_DARK_MATTER) _DME (_Dark_Matter/_Dark_Energy) _THF (The Higgs Fake) _OUTSTANDING_WISDOM_of_SCIENCE _OWoS Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards. - Aldous Huxley _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) The experiments that we will do with the LHC have been done billions of times by cosmic rays hitting the earth. They're being done continuously by cosmic rays hitting our astronomical bodies, like the moon, the sun, like Jupiter and so on and so forth. And the earth's still here, the sun's still here, the moon's still here. LHC collisions are not going to destroy the planet. - John Ellis [Nor are they going to produce useful results. Except in bank accounts.] _UNS (_UNSOLVED/_222) _SM (_STANDARD_MODEL) _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) The LHC uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp-posts -- for support rather than illumination. _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) The true order of learning should be first, what is necessary; second, what is useful, and third, what is ornamental. To reverse this arrangement is like beginning to build at the top of the edifice. - Lydia Howard Sigourney [Most of the work these days in tEmP theories is ornamental -- oh look, another pretty galaxy! Useful things were found decades if not a century ago -- e.g. the Planck scale. As to necessary things, tEmP theorists dumped the most necessary of them all -- the ether -- one hundred years ago. Now what?] _OVERRATED_WINDBAGS_of_SCIENCE _OWoS _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) The year that Rutherford died (1937) there disappeared forever the happy days of free scientific work which gave us such delight in our youth. Science has lost her freedom. Science has become a productive force. She has become rich but she has become enslaved and part of her is veiled in secrecy. I do not know whether Rutherford would continue to joke and laugh as he used to. - Pyotr Leonidovich Kapitsa [He'd be working at the LHC, and as happy as a pig.] _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _BB (_BIG_BANG) This is the Jurassic Park for particle physicists. The Large Hadron Collider is a time machine. Some of the particles they are making now or are about to make haven't been around for 14 billion years. - Phillip Schewe [Particle smashing is barbaric. You got that much right.] _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a postmortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of. - Ronald Aylmer Fisher [And this is _exactly_ what is done at the LHC...] THE LHC IS THIS. THIS EXACTLY!!!!!!!! _ST (_String_Theory) _SM (_STANDARD_MODEL) _QxD _PP (_Particle_Physics) _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) Torture numbers, and they will confess to anything. - Gregg Easterbrook [Particle physics' motto has become String Theory's. _LHC (_Large_Hadron_Collider) _G2 (_Gravity) _Higgs April 18, 2017 Physicists Detect Whiff of New Particle At the Large Hadron Collider https://science.slashdot.org/story/17/04/18/223228/physicists-detect-whiff-of-new-particle-at-the-large-hadron-collider http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/04/physicists-detect-whiff-new-particle-large-hadron-collider /. SummarY: "For decades, particle physicists have **** yearned for physics beyond their tried-and-true standard model." - can you believe this? " Now, they are finding signs of something unexpected at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)." - something UNEXPECTED = something BROKEN " The hints come from a smaller detector, called LHCb, that precisely measures the decays of familiar particles." "The latest signal involves **** deviations in the decays of particles called B mesons **** -- weak evidence on its own." - deviations = BREAKAGE " But together with other hints, it **** could **** point to new particles lying on the high-energy horizon." - almost unbelievable how pathetic this all is... ~_LHC_~ ~_LHC~
