Too hilarious to not cite

19/02/2009

I have found this very nice piece of humor about Higgs particle at Cosmic Variance (see here). This text is a combination of quotes from famous movies. E.g., the last paragraph is taken from Ocean’s eleven and runs like this:

Terry: All right. Now I have complied with your every request, would you agree?
Rusty: I would.
Terry: Good, ’cause now I have one of my own. Run and hide, asshole. Run and hide. If you should be picked up next week buying a hundred-thousand dollar sports car in Newport Beach, I am going to be supremely disappointed. Because I want my people to find you, and when they do, rest assured we are not going to hand you over to the police. So my advice to you again is this: run and hide. That is all that I ask.

The first paragraph is taken from The Matrix and runs like this:

Neo: I know you’re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you’re afraid… you’re afraid of us. You’re afraid of change. I don’t know the future. I didn’t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it’s going to begin. I’m going to hang up this phone, and then I’m going to show these people what you don’t want them to see. I’m going to show them a world without you. A world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

Nobody at Cosmic Variance was able to hit the citation for the second paragraph. It is very well accustomed to LHC situation so not that easy to identify. If you know it please, share your knowledge.

Movie quotes are from Internet Movie DB.
