It matters whether or not matter and anti-matter

Well, this is fun work. Fermilab scientists are finding clues to why there is apparently more matter in the universe compared to anti-matter ... which is a good thing for us creatures made out of matter.

And the LHC will probe all these mysteries further and deeper. I wonder what more fundamental insights will be gained into the workings of nature in my lifetime. And whether a Grand Unified Theory will be achieved and whether that achievement is close at hand. Is that going to occur in the next 50 years or perhaps 500 years from now ... in which case I will be as dead as da Vinci is now or Shakespeare.

So, cheers! Science rocks!

And Ramdev sucks! And Ravi Shankar with multiple Sris sucks too!
