This isn't a gif, it is something called an optical illusion, where your eyes and mind plays tricks on you. I got into a 6 page argument with a guy about how this was totally a gif but then it turns out I was wrong.

Here's something that's very exciting if it is "something" (not enough data yet, could be just a fluctuation but both, CMS and ATLAS reported the same observation independently)

Alas, it's probably nothing. I know experimental physics grad students who describe their jobs as "bump-squashing" - meaning some data fluctuation that looked like it might be "something" showed up and they proved it was nothing. This happens fairly often. For that reason I'm kind of surprised a bump made it into the news...

Yes it could be nothing. But the reason why it's news is because both ATLAS and CMS reported the same observation independetly. If only one of them would have reported it but the other not then it wouldn't get that much attention.
