The title-text could also be a reference to Bugs Bunny, many episodes had such play-on-words as title. ("A witch's tangled hare", "A Feather in his Hare", "Compressed Hare", many more...) -- ‎Gegueure (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

It could be mentioned that the Higgs signature shown is probably a Higgs->top anti-top/bottom anti-bottom->jet-jet signature, and most certainly not the clearest observed channel right now of Higgs->gamma gamma (as there is no neutral signature, which would be a track appearing some from the center, and there are clearly two jets to be seen). This is a difficult channel to observe, and is much more important in higher Higgs mass regions than the now observed, where b-bbar is present, but gamma gamma is much easyer to observe.85.164.251.29 13:11, 24 August 2013 (UTC)

Velociraptors are suspiciously missing from this comic... Just some random derp 19:18, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I first thought of the Beverly Cleary mouse books too, but Ralph S. Mouse rode a motorcycle, not a bicycle. 162.158.74.106 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Could it be a reference to Biker Mice From Mars? --141.101.105.31 08:05, 9 December 2016 (UTC)

I don't understand the knight tracks. They appear to move the same distance forward as they do to the side. Knights can't move like that.

The Knight Tracks panel represents a series of knight hops, rather than a single move. 162.158.107.121 21:29, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

The Higgs Boson frame is significantly different from all the others because it represents an image from a cloud chamber not tracks in snow. Brenda (talk) 09:15, 16 June 2018 (UTC)


Which was is the bicycle going? There is a way to figure it out. Someone help 23:27, 3 December 2018 (UTC)

The Prius isn't a reference to dodgy pedals, but the drivers being horrible themselves. As you can see here, the car VEERS off the road. It does not brake, nor speed up.
