Typos + geeks = put the drink down NOW.

Every once in a while, I just have to click on one of the news headlines at the top of my Gmail page. It's often the science ones, just because I have to see what the actual work is that the SF-influenced headline is about. Or, y'know, as near as one can tell from the article.

Today I couldn't resist clicking on "Researchers fire most powerful anti-matter beam ever." Precisely because, as brainiacfive noted, "It's not what it sounds like. It's called an accelerator. We live about twenty miles from one," all of which I knew, and I was curious to see if the experiment in question was there.

It wasn't, but the real gold mine is in the comments on the article. Particularly the ones arising from the declaration that the researchers "fired a positron bean." Their typo, not mine. Hilarity ensues.
