Muon Physics Advanced Laboratory Instrument by TeachSpin

I am not precisely certain that I believe in this fantastical entity known as the "muon".

I mean, really. It is like a couple physics majors had a drunken IMversation:

Dweeb: Yah, so like, cows, man. Dork: Are you done with the labs? Can I get your data? Dweeb: You mooch. Help me w/my senior project and I'll give you my data. Dork: ...ok? Dweeb: So, cows. Like, I was thinking, invent a new particle. A cow-shaped particle. Dork: ... Dweeb: Yeah, and we can design elaborate machinery to light up and make clicking noises and construct appropriately logarithmic charts of random data to support these cow particles. Dork: is this less work than real physics? Dweeb: JFC, COWS. *** Dork has gone idle. Dweeb: LOL We can call them moo-ons.

And that was basically how that happened.
