Anonymous Dupeur writes “Only 12 hours after the start of operation of the Large Hardon Collider at an unprecedentedly high energy level, a discovery had been made. Today, in its press release, CERN disclosed the observation of a new class — paleoparticles. ‘It’s awful,’ explains Alain Grand, still shocked by the discovery. ‘It left horrible tracks inside the detector that made the physicists on duty at the time feel quite sick.’ No wonder. The particle consists of two strange quarks and one top quark but no beauty or charm quark. The physicists have nicknamed it the ‘neutrinosaurus.’ This marks a first success of the — finally — started experiment.”
