Clue/Question:  Sinking the putt at the British Open in a downpour made him the . . .

Answer:  RAINING CHAMPION

(Very nice, indeed!  Well jumbled clue words!  None of them new, but there were a few that were very challenging.  I really liked “armory”, “person” and especially “genius”.  I had the toughest time getting “genius”, thereby proving that I am far from being one.  I thought the – basic – answer letter layout was wonderfully challenging.  If you didn’t pick up on the cartoon and the intended pun, it would have been pretty difficult to get the answer from the answer letter layout alone.  Great cartoon and very timely subject matter.  What’s coming up next guys?  Something on the impending Summer Olympics?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

An example of simulated data modelled for the CMS particle detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Here, following a collision of two protons, a is produced which decays into two jets of hadrons and two electrons. The lines represent the possible paths of particles produced by the proton-proton collision in the detector while the energy these particles deposit is shown in blue. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

(For me, even though I find it fascinating, this would seem to apply to a lot of Particle Physics.  The belief that we have finally been able to prove the existence of the Higgs boson is very cool.  But, what practical results can follow from this?  We expend an inordinate amount of money, energy, time and various resources in hopes of validating these theories, but what will we be able to actually do with this knowledge?  Will it help us achieve something like cold fusion, or what?  Any physicists out there?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
