Large Hadron Collider Seeks Higgs Boson [and Eman?]

Physicists will collide protons in October in a supercooled magnet tunnel tube that is 17 miles around and 350 feet below the borders of Switzerland and France. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN)[don't ask why the acronym does not fit the organization name]. The facility cost about $6 billion to build. It is funded and built in collaboration with over two thousand physicists from thirty-four countries as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories. Remember the USA cancelled its planned Superconducting Super Collider in Texas.

It is theorized that the collider will produce the elusive Higgs boson. The verification of the existence of the Higgs boson would be a significant step in the search for a Grand Unified Theory, which seeks to unify three of the four known fundamental forces: electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force, leaving out only gravity. The Higgs boson may also help to explain why gravitation is so weak compared to the other three forces. In addition to the Higgs boson, other theorized novel particles that might be produced, and for which searches[4] are planned, include strangelets, micro black holes, magnetic monopoles and supersymmetric particles.

Golfing Environment Man Does 72 Holes in 2 Days

May. Massanutten Resort. I played 36 holes of golf each day for two days. Did not think I could do it but I managed. 18 holes in the morning. Lunch. And then 18 holes in the afternoon. Massanutten Resort is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and is also a ski resort.

I played four unique courses:

1) Woodstone Meadows At Massanutten Resort

2) Mountain Greens At Massanutten Resort

3) Heritage Oaks Golf Course

4) Packsaddle Ridge Golf Club

Packsaddle Ridge Golf Club was a relatively new course and was clearly the most interesting. Some rich guy bought the area, designed and built the course. It has a cliff hole par 3 that is breathtaking.
Although I played horribly, it definitely helped me for the rest of the golfing season.

Eman Profile - Post Ironic

Environment Man is the epitome of the post-ironic 21st century American cultural attitude. He's completely taken the entire history of American mass entertainment from country and western to Ziggy Stardust & the Spiders From Mars and the quirkiness of anti deep ecology environmentalism and melded it into a character that is completely contemporary.
Eman is pictured at right in Gort battle helmet with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice at the State Department.

What To Say To Yourself When You Find Yourself Whining

Fredo Corleone:

"It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says... like dumb... I'm smart and I want respect!

Environment Man & The Ecology Band

The "Acid Rain" album dropped 24 years ago but is still a smash hit. Environment Man wrote and performed some of his best material back in the 20th Century. And if it was good in the past it is still good. Sit back, relax and go back to the future with one of the greenest artists in the history of music. It is now. It is always. It will be...................Environment Man. (Click Below)

"I Could Have Been A Contender"

"You don't understand. I could have had class. I could have been a contender. I could have been somebody. Instead of a bum, which is what I am - let's face it."

Roy Batty Upon Approaching Death in "Blade Runner"

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

E-Man : Superhero For Justice

My name is Environment Man, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Green Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, God Almighty. Father to a great son, husband to a future wife. And I will have my justice, in this life or the next.
