Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is “Get your mass handed to you”, which deals with an attempt to sell a Higgs boson on eBay.  Higgs bosons are theoretical particles which create the phenomenon of mass, and as such they should be very abundant.  How the seller in the auction intends to deliver is beyond me.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
