Did you know we're in an ice age? You can tell because of the year-round ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. This is still the one that started with the Pleistocene 2.6 million years ago, freezing out the mammoths and neanderthals and all that; at its height, 30% of the Earth was beneath ice sheets that were up to some 4 km thick; fortunately an interglacial period began about 10,000 years ago, and things warmed up a bit! But it's about due to run out, according to some calculations.

Also, today is a great day to learn about an important discovery made at CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland late last year, which was unfairly overshadowed by that Higgs boson hubbub, which wasn't even an actual discovery! Yes, it's time to learn all about bottomonium.

RE: Bottomonium; You mean the underlying fundament?

The malfunction seems quite mobile!

So Ben, I was just wondering, what's the secret of the universe?

If I knew that would I be makin' webcomics? :o I wouldn't be surprised if bottomonium is involved somehow, though.
