So apparently it’s Susie Wolff driving the Williams in this clip from Top Gear a few years ago, racing against Nico Prost in the Lotus. And Antonio Felix da Costa in the Red Bull. (I have no idea who’s in the McLaren though or the Mercedes)

@historygeek12 How much of a heart attack do you think Toto had when he heard she was racing the car to London?

Ffs there's a BBC news story about how the Oscars are male dominated, but they dismiss it's racism so easily. The first thing the lady said was 'the Oscars have been criticised for it's lack of poc, but what about women?'. White women are only concerned with their own problems.

They really said that? Not surprised. I guess women of color don’t exist then huh? Oscars so white is a feminist issue also

Henrietta!!! OMG, we are going to suffer with Robert for his heartache but at the same time we will be happy just because he will be a lovesick puppy who will go around all depressed and showing, to those who do noticed it, how much Aaron's absence make him feel bad ... I can't wait!

SUSY MY LOVE!! OMG YES!! It’s going to be absolutely torture for Robert when Aaron leaves, his heart is going to break! And our hearts will break with him! I’m sooo not ready for yet I’m like BRING IT ON!! Give me moping, pining, sad, emotional Robert bc it will only make it so much sweeter when Aaron does return and the two of them sometime in the future get back together :D

You’re SO right! Robert will definitely turn into this lovesick puppy that will hang around all the places he knows Aaron loves just to be reminded of him and feel closer to him while he’s gone. He’ll probably hang out at the pub all the time, with the excuse that he’s there to see Diane or Vic but really he’s drowning his sorrows and thinking about Aaron. And we already know from the spoilers that Robert will be working at the scrapyard so another good indication that he wants to stay close to things reminding him of Aaron - him working at the scrapyard! A total lovesick puppy indeed…awww!!! (I hope we do get to actually see him working at the scrapyard like YES I WANT THAT!! And I want banter between him and Adam. And Adam actually seeing what a good guy can see and that he’s good enough for his best mate…GIVE IT TO ME!! LOL)

I REEEEAAALLLYYY hope people around Robert can see how depressed and sad he is about Aaron not being around and Robert not giving a fuck bc he misses Aaron that much so he doesn’t care what other people think of him. I especially hope Vic and Chas comments on it, like that would be amazing!! But I wouldn’t mind if Diane and Adam noticed it too…like how awesome would that be…everyone being able to actually, FINALLY, see how deeply Robert feels about Aaron!!!

u know... I'm really not trying to start anything but I'm watching Katy Perry's super bowl performance and...

Since I know wee were all collectively NOT watching her last year did we miss her saying “nigga” when Missy Elliot was out? Cuz I swear this trick said nigga but I’m gunna need someone to prove me wrong

LHC Breaks Supersymmetry’s Beauty

With possible but not yet definite and verifiable news of gaining some understanding to the elusive Higgs Boson, what would happen to the other theories that have been submitted? More specifically the other favored theory. In this limited article, NS explores the other side of the story and what could come of it.:

In July, at a particle physics conference in Grenoble, France, Nobel laureate George Smoot seemed to be channelling the spirit of Thomas Huxley. The scrappy 19th-century champion of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection once spoke of “the great tragedy of science - the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact”. Smoot, a cosmologist who made his name studying the afterglow of the big bang, thinks this is just the drama now playing out in particle physics.

Particle physics has a beautiful theory, known as supersymmetry. More than three decades in the making, its elegant mathematical structure was intended to replace the “standard model”, the eminently serviceable but sometimes creaky and in parts aesthetically unpleasing theoretical construct that is currently our best description of matter’s fundamental workings.

Supersymmetry’s beauty is now meeting some ugly facts emerging from the Large Hadron Collider, the gargantuan particle accelerator situated at CERN near Geneva, Switzerland. Supersymmetry predicts a whole slew of new particles, and by most reckonings the LHC should have started producing some of them already. But it hasn’t. That throws up some big questions. Is supersymmetry really the right answer? If not, what is?

Supersymmetry - SUSY to its legion of fans - has long been seen as a panacea for the standard model’s ills. Back in the early 1960s, one of the theories that went into making the standard model faced an embarrassment. It could not explain how elementary particles, things such as electrons and the quarks that make up protons and neutrons, get their mass. It predicted none of them had any mass at all.

A workaround, arrived at from several angles in 1964, was to postulate that an all-pervading field exists with which elementary particles interact differently, giving each a unique mass. This was the Higgs field, named after one of its progenitors, Peter Higgs of the University of Edinburgh, UK.

The Higgs mechanism was neat, but created its own problem. Experimental clues indicated that the mass of the “quantum” of the Higgs field, the Higgs boson, was between about 114 and 180 gigaelectronvolts (GeV) – exactly the range in which the LHC is currently feverishly seeking the particle, with as yet only tantalising hints. The theory, though, made it something like a billion billion times bigger. This gigantic discrepancy came to be known as the hierarchy problem.
