    A good point. What gives stuff mass? Higgs bosons? Do all fundamental particles have Higgs bosons? How many did they find at the LHC? Enough to fit the needs of all the atoms involved and all their subatomic particles? I don't get out in that world much but I don't remember then locating massive quantities of Higgs bosons.
    Is the graviton story still alive?
