More Post-Higgs silliness

I recently got to eavesdrop on a delightful and silly e-mail exchange between US LHC’s very own Burton and Aidan, both ATLAS physicists, after I pointed out that Wikipedia now mentions the ATLAS Higgs talk as a “notable use” of the infamous font Comic Sans. The quotes below are lifted directly from their e-mail exchange (with their permission), as illustrated by yours truly.

For more substantial physics discussion, check out Aidan and Seth’s Higgs postgame video and Anna’s ongoing posts from ICHEP.

Update [7/08]: the “4.9 sigma” comment below is a mistake, the actual “global significance” includes the ‘look elsewhere effect’ and is lower than this.
