Doesn't affect me at all, of course, but I bet there's a whole lot of research grant requests getting written all over the world. Money will be donated to research facilities, universities, and scientists who want to learn more. They'll be spending lots of money on equipment, research assistants, new offices, and new science wings. There will be new books and textbooks written, which means that students will have to buy them, creating more work for printing presses, and bookstores will see improved sales as people read up on what this little particle is all about.
Hey, it's good for the economy.
In cyberspace, no-one can see you sneer.
