Find that Missing Matter !!!
So the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN is about to start looking for "dark matter"; that is, apparently, the 85% of the matter in the universe that exists but is, err, NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. I think that is a very good idea indeed. Moreover, I know 85% is about the right figure because that is about the percentage of the things I have owned that have, over the years, mysteriously disappeared.
So I have sent an e-mail to the LHC guys, asking them to please locate that pair of spectacles that inexplicably went missing on a flight from Bangalore to Hyderabad a few years ago. I mean, I looked in the seat pocket and under the chair and everywhere, and there they were - just GONE! After that I am asking the LHC wizards if they could kindly return the about 20 sweat shirts that have mysteriously disappeared in various trains, buses and restaurants. Then, finally, there's that lamb chop that was on the dinner plate last week that vanished into thin air when I had to pop out to answer the phone. I would be so grateful to get it back intact. Grady (our lemon beagle) did happen to be in the room at the time but insists he had absolutely nothing to do with it.
