Still confused about that whole Higgs boson thingie?

The world has been in a big geekgasm mode the past two weeks. Higgs boson this. God particle that. I’m interested to know more about the topic but as a non-physicist and someone out of college for quite some time, I found the Wikipedia entry a bit hard to chew and digest.

Some smart people released videos and blog posts explaining the issue to us mere mortals. I checked out a few and the best one I’ve seen so far is this video from PhD Comics. It explains the Higgs boson in a way that can be understood but without overly simplifying things.
