The Gauntlet III

Over at PF, the poster E.L. and I have agreed on a bet at 1000:1 odds. At 1c invested this is a huge win of $10 (is that $US 10 E.L.?), to be collected after decent data analysis from the full beam LHC. The bet is based on my claim that at this time, probably in 2008 or 2009, that of any new particles discovered at the LHC the vast majority of physicists will call none of them KK modes.

Any other takers?

    What the heck is a “KK mode”?

    Oh, Kaluza-Klein mode, as in the infinite tower of excited modes. Yes, I think you win this bet, but you should have held out for better odds.

    Hi Carl

    I offered him better odds, but he was reluctant to take them.
