Anybody seen the Higgs boson? Anybody?
All the info listed on the shirt is great, but I mean lets be honest, we all know about the problems this thing has experienced in the past, and until the Troubled Rebel Princess (aka Randy Marsh) returns that particle accelerator magnet the Large Hadron will be nothing but scrap metal.
