There was a news items on our daily paper site called \"Algemeen Dagblad\" which says that the LHC stopped again because some bird dropped some bread into the LHC?? This causes make the LHC overheating.

This a joke? Dont see anything yet on CERN frontpage.

I hope not.

There was a theory put forward a while ago that the discovery of a naked higgs particle would be so abhorrent to nature that \'the universe\' would conspire to prevent it.

I was pretty sceptical at the time to say the least, but birds and baguette...?
