The physics of wobbly

The physics of wobbly: Those physicists at CERN — you know, the folks responsible for creation of the World Wide Web and where the antimatter in the Dan Brown’s Novel Angels & Demons was made (see CERN’s section of snopes-like response to the novel). Now they’ve gone and topped themselves. They’ve cracked the mystery behind wobbly tables in restaurants. They’ve solved the math behind the reason why it’s possible to rotate a four-legged wobbly table and find a place where it no longer wobbles. No doubt, this finding will receive a Noble Prize one day.
