Teams of scientists and literally trillions of colliding subatomic particles have produced compelling new evidence of the mysterious force that could hold answers to the most profound questions in the universe.
But we are no closer to solving the mystery of who left the Chipotle trash on the kitchen counter.
Much like the disappearance of every single clean towel in the house, the fast-food trash phenomena left the four teens with whom we are sharing vacation accommodations completely baffled.
How did it get there? What unseen forces were responsible for the fact that the Chipotle bag appeared on a kitchen counter that previously had not contained a Chipotle bag? Was it only coincidence that the teenagers had brought back Chipotle burritos a short time before?
The only certainty was their shared conviction that someone else was responsible for the bag's sudden appearance in the universe.
The 15-year-old who had ordered the steak and rice burrito summed up the puzzling situation in starkly literal terms.
"I literally have no idea," she said. "I don't know where the bag came from. I don't know anything about the bag. I did not touch it once. I know literally nothing about it."
Her brother, 17, offered an alternative
universe theory which placed his sister and her 14-year-old BFF at the center of responsibility, but was hazy about the link between the bag and his decision to "make a burrito run" earlier in the day.
Further insights were postponed by the unrelated discovery that the teenagers were hungry again.
