There’s no need to fake excitement. Physicists aren’t going to be insulted that you don’t understand the significance of the Higgs Boson. If your only indication that a scientific result is important is that some New York Times science writer thinks it is (or at least, someone else told him so and he’s afraid to look stupid) then you are officially not obligated to pretend to give a shit. You’re all welcome.
