Bostonians succeed once more in proving Pauli exclusion principle

Bus vs. car in downtown Boston

B. Moynihan shows us what happens when two objects try to occupy the same space at the same time - granted, a bus and a car in the area of Federal and Franklin rather than two electrons, but the principle's the same, no?

HOWEVER there are drivers driving down the entire length of that lane at every rush hour. This has been reported for two years.

Citizens connect now has BPD go out at 9pm and say "nobody parked there - all clear"

They know damn well the problem is NOT PARKING but DRIVING.

This contributed to this accident - I witnessed it. The car was trying to dive into the bike lane.

Something like this would be really fun to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJlsv2ZSIYE

The fake trolley buses are the worst - they actually honk at and intimidate cyclists trying to use it as intended.

Also, some cities have gone to a "bus pulling out has the right of way" rule. Perhaps Boston should too?

Yay adam!

But you should note that this only applies to fermions.

So all we need are vehicles made of bosons and we're all set.

Like the infamous Higgs Boston particle? That might explain some things ...

So why shouldn't the Higgs Boston, aka, Gawd particle, be found here?

We're all fermions on this bus?

After seeing someone almost get clipped by a 57 pulling out of the station in Kenmore AGAIN on my way to work today, I'm pretty confident in my assertion.
