I wish 2009 will bring an answer to a few important questions:
- Can LHC run ?
- Can LHC run at 14 TeV ?
- Will I get tenure ?
- Are multi-muons a background ?
- Are the Pamela/ATIC signals a prologue of a new scientific revolution ?
- Will England allow a NZ scientist to work on Category Theory on its soil ?
- Is the Standard Model still alive and kicking in the face of several recent attempts at its demise ?
I believe the answer to all the above questions is yes. However, I am by no means sure all of them will be answered next year.
