"Higgs, who is currently deliberating between the license plates PART1CLE or H1GG5, said: 'In the place where I grew up, physics was the only route out. I saw neighbourhood physicists in their sports cars and designer clothes and thought yeah, I gotta get some theories.'"
The Daily Mash report on Peter Higgs' decision to spend his Nobel Prize money on "a pimped-out SUV". Nice to know that despite all the praise and commendation, he's keeping it real.
