HOMER SIMPSON SOLVES HIGGS BOSON EQUATION IN 1998!

To say that you have been out smarted by Homer Simpson, is pretty much saying that you are a “brain moron!” (as said by Mr. Burns…never knew what that meant but it was hilarious nonetheless). Now imagine, you, a theoretical physicist  at a distinguished university and five of your physicist buddies, work your asses off to find the missing piece of the puzzle that would explain the big bang theory!

48 years later, you and CERN work together to build the Large Hadron Collider that smashes protons together at the speed of light (or close to it), which allows them to re-create the event that occurred right after the big bang and…boom! You discover the answer to life’s biggest mystery…this is a groundbreaking moment! You have made history! Heck, the discovery is even named after you, which is a pretty big deal!

Now…

Imagine, you are at a dinner party filled with the elite of the science community and you are the center of attention  at this huge shindig! While you are in the middle of a pretentious story about how you came upon your monumental discovery, you notice a fat slob with tartar sauce on his cheek, hovering over the seafood table. You decide to make a joke about him which works out perfectly when he bends over to pick up a shrimp he dropped and splits the back of his uber tight dress pants…you are disgusted by this brain moron and let it be known.

As you go on and on about the discovery of the God Particle, the fat slob joins in the conversation…

“Oh! You’re that…uhhhh…Jiggs Tyson feller, no?”

“It’s called, Higgs Boson…” you reply, offended that he is even talking to you.

“Ya. I had that there thing figga’d out ages ago”

You and the crowd erupt with laughter until the slob shows you old video footage, uploaded to his Iphone of himself writing out the equation that determined the mass of the God Particle, 14 years before you and your CERN flunkies! After authenticating the footage, you realize the brain moron is telling the truth…

Basically…that’s how everyone at CERN feels right now! (JOKE!!!!)

Obviously, the writers behind this were some serious mathematicians. The writer of this particular episode, said he consulted his friend who was an astronomer at Columbia U,  who then gave him the equation. The writer slipped it in there without telling anyone where it came from. I believe what you see in the image above is Homer about to solve to the equation…it is incomplete by one or two variables.

A part of me wishes that this would have remained an unsolved mystery, Easter egg on the Simpsons and not a real discovery made by CERN and Higgs. The repercussions of this will be catastrophic in the future. More on this in my next post…

MEET JANI FROM THE WORLD OF CALALINI

Jani Schofield, who is a girl that has been diagnosed with a very severe case of schizophrenia,  sees over 200 hallucinations and they come from her “hallucinated” island “Calalini”. I first saw her on an episode of Oprah but didn’t really pay any attention to the case. Not because I’m insensitive to people who suffer from schizophrenia, but because it was a familiar situation that I thought at the time, I had heard a million times before.

It wasn’t until Oprah asked her about the things she sees, that I started to pay very close attention. Continue reading

Whether it be classic toys, retro cartoons, sci-fi tv show or comic book characters…I LOVE ALTERNATE CHARACTERS! I’ve always wondered about the different versions of me in multiple universes and how they live their lives. Am I evil in one world? Rich in another? Dead? Either way, I am extremely fascinated with the duality that comes from the fakers alternate versions of heroes and villains.

BELOW ARE MY TOP FIVE ALTS…

AHH! GEEK OUT! #2: BATMAN “A DEATH IN THE FAMILY”

Growing up in the 80’s was pretty awesome…not gonna lie. I was never into comics when I was younger but my oldest brother was an avid collector. These were his precious and he was an absolute Gollum, when it came to his comics. Even now in his 40’s, he has them  all boxed away, safely sealed in plastic and there are some CLASSICS! Even though I wasn’t allowed to touch them, if he came across something totally radical (a bit of 80’s lingo there for ya) like Wolverine getting his adamantium claws in “Weapon X” or the first appearance of Spider-Man’s black suit in “The Amazing Spider-Man #252”, he would show me the artwork.

Sometimes, the content was a bit over my head, so I would just get the gist through the drawings. One day he came home very excited about a comic he had been eagerly anticipating and just purchased. I saw the brown paper bag and for some uncontrollable reason, I too became very giddy wondering what comic it was. My favorite super heroes in those days were Batman and Superman…maybe Batman a bit more…actually yes…a lot more, so when he slowly pulled out the first issue and I saw the cover of the  morbidly dark Batman comic, I was confused and a disturbed.

“Why was Batman holding a bloodied Robin?” I asked.

My brother, a twisted individual, smiled and said with delight, “Reeeeaad the tiiiiitlllle…” (did I mention my brother talks reeeeeeeaaaaaallllll slow like gumshoe or sadistic mobster from the 30’s?)

I read the title:

“A DEATH IN THE FAMILY”
