"two protons walk into a black hole ... "

if you have access to the wall street journal, check out this article. pretty funny. it's about physicists taking a workshop on how to be funny. i think i like the line in the article "do my bosons give you a hadron" even better. there's no limit to how funny physicists can be. i'm sure there's an integral in there somewhere ... limit of physicists as funny approaches infinity.

all this of course is tribute to the large hadron collider, which recently went into operation. click here to get more info on this. here's another link to some physicists having a pajama party to celebrate. now that sounds like a party i don't want to miss. hey, my undergrad was in mechanical engineering so i feel i have clearance to make fun of science and engineering nerds.
