My hard life: I really need to stop watching old eps of White Collar and bake some cookies

For my fellow Yanks on this Flist, Happy Amurrican Supremacy Day Happy Independence Day! Hope you're all enjoying fireworks and burgers and hot dogs and lemonade! Because, you know, eating barbecue... it's patriotic! Do your civic duty and EAT THOSE DELICIOUS GRILLED PROCESSED MEAT PRODUCTS! Unless you're vegetarian, in which case, don't. (Everyone knows vegetarians are unpatriotic.)

For the rest of you (and, okay, the Americans too, if you like) there's still something to celebrate... Happy We-Think-We-May-Have-Discovered-The-Higgs-Boson Day! :DDDD

Today, in Geneva, a press release from CERN: CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson.

...What's that? Wtf is a Higgs boson and why do we care? EXCELLENT QUESTION. Allow me to have someone much more qualified than I explain via entertaining cartoons! The Higgs Boson Explained.

And, because these PHD Comics are just so fucking charming and enjoyable, bonus: Dark Matters.
