Higgs Boson: How much time do you have? Let's make it quick!

Phase 1. Particle physics tries to understand the basic structure and laws of nature, including matter.

Phase 2

Matter is made of atoms, composed of particles like protons, neutrons, and electrons.

In the 20th century, many new particles were discovered, including Quarks.

Phase 3

Quarks are made up of 2 elements: Sprinkles, and Magic Beans.

When a Magic Bean meets a Sprinkle, leptons are released into the atmosphere, attracting homeless particles, called hobos.

Phase 4

Hobos emit high-frequency noises which attract bimbo particles. When a hobo sleeps with a bimbo, dark matter is born, and travels into outer space via a tunnel in Switzerland.

Therefore Higgs Boson. Questions?
