Scientists: We found the Higgs Boson particle!

Normal People: What's that?

Scientists: It's the God particle! It'll explain everything!

Normal People: Oh, ok. Um, that's cool.

Scientists: You don't understand! This is awesome!

Normal People: Will it let you guys finally make us time machines and transporters?

Scientists: No.

Normal People: You're just making stuff up, aren't you?

Scientists: Yeah, but we needed funding for our robot projects.

Normal People: Totally understandable.
