A Theory of Fate

Following the failure of their experiment in searching for "the God particle", some distinguished physicists seemed to have found their reason of bad luck -- the troubled collider is being sabotaged by its own future! Put this more accurately, "the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather."

What a great theory of bad luck! More surprisingly, these geniuses also came up with some ideas to test this theory (also see here)!

Thanks to Nick for the pointer.
