    WTF?

    this is all funny and non-offensive how?

    I’ve been a particle physics (lay) geek for a couple decades now. I’m always interested in a non-technical article on the latest & greatest in high energy work. I even struggle to semi-understand the 1/2 technical stuff and I think I can make sense of a rather large amount of that. I’ve been following the Higgs search for maybe 10 years.

    And I just don’t get the funny. Is this supposed to be funny? Is this supposed to be a post-sexism ironic use of sexism? What does that do for the meme?

    Ah, nerd humor. No one will ever love you.

    It never fails…

    Just when someone finds something funny, someone like Crip Dyke has to show up with all that bullshit feminism and ethical high ground and proper social behavior and being 100% correct about stuff to ruin it for everyone.

    Is this supposed to be a post-sexism ironic use of sexism?

    Physics memes are the best but I prefer my own:

    Yes…sort of.

    I don’t know why people think I need some sort of comeback or comeuppance.

    Yes, this is what I was looking for. Thank you.

    I still don’t find it funny, but if I had been conversant with this meme I might have, who knows?

    Internet humor: It usually doesn’t make sense.

    This seems so strange, yet it is so charming as well…

    Because they are ever so much smarter than you, and there is no such animal as false equivalence.

    Excellent.

    This is very good as well. If you haven’t, you may want to look into geology. Physics is fantastic, but geologists have the best puns™.
