what to do when a smart person says a crazy thing?

One of the founders of string theory in physics made the case this week that the Large Hadron Collider will fail to produce/discover the Higgs boson because its very existence is so abhorrent to nature that the attempt to create it sabotages itself.

The upshot is that we can expect seemingly strange delays and chronic problems to plague CERN interminably. This has to be one of the better physics theory in the world today, frankly. Perhaps there is a similar explanation for why I can never find the elusive Skinny Cow Cookies-N-Cream flavored ice cream sandwiches..their deliciousness is so antithetical to nature that somehow it’s rippling backwards through time.
