Those naughty experimentalists, such as Tommaso Dorigo
, have been spreading rumours about a D0
discovery involving an excess of 4 bottom quark jet events. Of course, this has reignited the Higgs boson gossip, which must be starting to sound like a boy crying wolf even to those who actually (mistakenly) think that such a particle exists. One begins to suspect that these naughty children are just playing games to get a laugh out of all the crazy responses that pop up in the media in no time at all.
Naturally, we are all ears if D0
decides to tell us something Interesting and Statistically Significant
, as they say.
In other gossip: the rumour that the Riemann hypothesis has been shown to be false has now extended beyond the blogosphere. One of my office mates heard it from a colleague in a casual conversation!
