boner (27505) writes "In a follow-up of an earlier Slashdot story (http://news.slashdot.org/story/12/03/01/1915236/majorana-fermion-may-have-been-spotted-at-tu-delft), scientists at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands, today published their findings that they have indeed found the Majorana particle.

The announcement on the university website provides both a summary and background of this groundbreaking discovery. The page is available in both dutch and english : http://tudelft.nl/en/current/latest-news/article/detail/nanowetenschappers-vinden-langgezocht-majorana-deeltje/"

There's a particle with a name so close to "marijuana" that at first glance you think it is that word?

It wasn't me, but can perhaps offer an explanation anyway. The retard you are talking about probably pressed the "+" sign in front of the article. And in all his relatedness believed that he was giving the article a "Nod of approval" And probably he pressed "-" sign to "Nix" the articles he felt boring. That is certainly the way I always thought it work as well, but what do we retards know? Or just maybe, you are wrong and we are not the retards?

Sorry if that sounded harsh. You probably just inhaled too many Majorana particles.
