Cutting Edge

I was thinking the other day about the Higgs Boson as a massive scalar elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model in particle physics. Surely, I mused, it would explain the difference between the Massless Photon which mediates electromagnetism, and the massive W and Z bosons?

My other theory relates to the time space continuum and concerns the most infinitesimal slice of time imaginable. I'm putting forward the theory that the smallest possible blink of time can only be measured as the time it takes for a cool, hip and edgy stand-up comedian to transform into an embarrassing Uncle Nobhead.

I'm calling it the Vicreeves Quotient.

Sadly I believe I may have already made this transition myself at some nanosecond in the last few years.

When were you cool, hip and edgy?

Listen, sonny, some of us worked hard to transform themselves into embarrassing uncles. I have honed and crafted my persona. For you to suggest that it is an instant phenomenon is highly offensive.
And Higgs Boson is an arsehole. I shagged his sister.

Don't do any more thinking Rog - it isn't good for you.
Do you think Vic's mate turned into an embarrasing Uncle Bobhead?

I was taught that 'nob' began with a K, as in knob. I may be wrong.

Dave: August 1968

Vicus: I apologise for undermining your schtick. And thank you for putting this blog in the top 100 results for "Higgs Boson is an arsehole".

Kaz: Curiously Bob Mortimer hasn't undergone the transformation yet ... he's still Mr Cool to me.

John: You've been hanging out with the wrong Nobs.

Why, oh why don't I know who any of these people are? Is this all a dream?
