He was standing at a bus stop...
Does that mean the bus has no mass until he gets on?
I think it rather means an interaction term between the Higgs and the bus is not forbidden by gauge invariance. If the Higgs would give rise to the bus' mass, it would be questionable whether we still call it a "bus" before Higgs is on board.
let us know when you see his boson
And you didn't even tell him about PF?
Did he looked depressed because his Nobel Prize gets postponed so often?
i don't think he's got much of a chance unless is particle is finally observed. nobel prizes are for discoveries that have practical value, which is probably why hawking hasn't won one either.
Did he have a shopping cart?
And what was the Higgs' bus on?
He won't get it. The Abrikosov, Leggett and Ginzberg prize covers the same material, albeit in a different application. The Yoichiro Nambu prize covers what's left.
Yes, that's what I mean. That discovery is postponed over and over again:
