I wonder how many bong hits it took to get to that conclusion.

old news. his theory supposedly may have issues with mass and spin.

At least it's testable.

true enough. I'm still a huge fan of M theory (string theory), but for its elegance, it's gonna die soon if it can't reach testability.

I think everyone's banking on the LHC being able to lend some credibility to the theory.

IIRC, isn't the LHC coming online in a few short weeks? (may 2008)? should be a very exciting time.

What a stupid story. Not that the guy isn't really smart, but they make it sound like he just figured this out off the top of his head.

"Dude!"
"What!?"
"I just figured out a complex Physics problem!"
"Wow, and you dropped out of high school!"
"Uh... er... well... no. I have a PhD in Physics."
"HUH?! You're a total disappointment!"

I created the same crap with my Spirograph and all it got was hung on the fridge.

Yes. And may it form a micro black hole and swallow up the French side.

Yeah, but it sounds better this way. It's not like the guy is spending all his time in a lab like most physicists.
