is at CERN
: )i don't get it.I too am wondering why it's at #4.
Because the popular nerd webcomic http://xkcd.com/ (seen above in this blog) referenced it today. It's not uncommon for xkcd to cause a Google trend if his reference or topic is obscure to most readers.
Oh, and I think the joke is that the one scientist is so far behind his colleagues in studying the Higgs boson that he's completely bewildered by what seems obvious to them. Or they're pulling a prank on him to make him think he is.
aaaah it all falls into place. With a #4 I was more expecting Higgs Boson research to have revealed something earth-shattering. Instead it's a new stick cartoon on an obscure comic website. There's a profound message about life in this somewhere. Maybe I'll pay less attention to google trends in the future. : )excuse us Stephanie
mmmm... i take it back about the obscure website. it's actually pretty funny with my geek goggles on
