Last year the world's biggest most expensive science experiment -- the nine-billion dollar Large Hadron Collider -- broke down, and physicists are working hard to get it back in shape.
Two physicists, however, say the work is futile. Holger Bech Nielsen and Masao Ninomiya have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, the so-called "God particle" that the collider was designed to produce, might be so abhorrent to nature that it would make time ripple backward to prevent it from being born.
Sounds good to us, say thirty-eight kids who got sucked back into Octomom.
