    I know they have been very close to it and seen something similar to the boson but did they actually find it? it's like the media has been blowing it up and saying they found it, but there was not official claim, it was just yeah we spend a garbageload of energy and time trying to find it, we saw something similar and are getting closer, umm yeah we found it guys! we found it call the newspaper.

    As I noted in an earlier thread, they found something that looks like a duck, in a location where one would expect to find a duck. It will require further study to verify that it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck.
