Molecules You Ought To Be Aware of:
At the Home for Old Atoms...
'Okay...who put my lunch through the mass spectrometer?'
'I was only saying to the wife last night professor, this Higgs Boson particle business - what do you make of it?'
'What I meant by 'quark' in 'Finnegans Wake' was a hypothetical particle with a fractional electric charge.
'Gentlemen, I propose we send the neutrinos on a speed awareness course.'
'ONe hundred million neutrinos are passing through our bodies every second, and we're worried about the price of coffee.'
Before the linear accelerator.
"Hey everybody - we've discovered the Higgs boson! It was hidden under this big pile of equations all this time."
'Take a look at this everyone - it just could be the signature we've been looking for.'
"We've agreed to count it as both a wave and a particle for tax purposes."

Large Hadron Colliider-scope
"I've been entangled with a photon on the other side of the galaxy for eons, and then yesterday, out of the blue, she said she wants to date OTHER particles!"
'Quarks, neturinos, mesons. All those damn particles you can't see. That's what drove me to drink. But now i can see them!'
'I've done it! I've found the most basic particle!'
