If your Bo'sun Higgs is the same as my Bo'sun Higgs then he had a white coffee cup clipped to his belt loop and would knock you on your ass if you stepped into the bight of a line. He was a significant portion of the mass of my universe for a while. Work increased and chatter stopped when he appeared.

Been wanting to say hi from this lurker for a while; this gives me a good opportunity to do it. Thanks for the video, although I do have to say I think it's a terrible explanation that will confuse a lot of people: For one thing, describing the Higgs field as a "liquid" is just, well, bad. But, of course, that's SA's problem, not yours. :-)
