Q: Longest answer ever?

pcrJust wondering: what is the longest answer ever given in physics.stackexchange.com ? Possible candidate: What if the LHC doesn't see SUSY?

@ArnoldNeumaier , @DavidZaslavsky : I've got three different mutually exclusive resolutions to this paradox: http://physics.stackexchange.com/q/22398/7433

I'm currently inclined towards the radiation one, but I'm not too sure... Could you look through the answers and let me know which one makes the most sense to you? Thanks!

@DavidZaslavsky oh, and i was still reading the blog post when I posted it, so I found the official link on the same page afterwards..

@DavidZaslavsky Oh and where did you get this quote from? "you can never be sure that something is wrong with your experiment until you find out what it is" (on your blog). It sums up experimental physics in one awesome line!

@Manishearth What makes you think I got it from somewhere?
@Manishearth I'll give it a look when I have some time.

@Manishearth About the paradox: I've read Feynman's argument before. Since any classical distribution of charge should behave as a diamagnetic (paramagnetic & ferro are features of quantum mechanics), we should expect the sign of the potential to be somewhat like '+m.B'. The clockwise rotation is synonymous to 'diamagnetic', so I'm only rephrasing the fact. Emitabsorb's (Feynman's) description is sound enough for me...
@Manishearth "Magnetic field does no work on a proton" -> this applies to current loops, too.
