Well, maybe. It might not be the Higgs boson, but instead a particle similar to it, whatever that means. I say if it looks like the Higgs boson, and acts like the Higgs boson, then dang it, it must be the Higgs boson! To tell you the truth, with the subatomic levels the guys at CERN are working at, I wouldn't know how to tell the difference. But they know how - they're physicists. They'll tell us all about it on the 4th of July when the official announcement is scheduled to take place. Until then I'm not feeding any more to this media frenzy, so stay tuned.
