The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Oedipus Rex.

It took a while to realize it wasn't someone who was a Greek playwright, but rather something that was a Greek playwright and then the other clues fit.

Let's keep score for fun.

The phrase was coined in 1968 but we all know it from the ol' TMNT movie. Ninjitsu!

Wow, nice job! I thought that one would be tricky.

Once a great admirer, Beethoven originally dedicated his third symphony to Napoleon. The score was actually entitled "Bonaparte." However, upon learning Napoleon claiming himself as Emperor of France in 1804, Beethoven purportedly flew into a fit of rage and shredded the manuscript announcing, "So he is no more than a common mortal! Now, too, he will tread under foot all the rights of Man; indulge only his ambition. Now he will think himself superior to all men; become a tyrant!"

Yes, Symphony no. 3 - Sinfonia Eroica - "Heroic Symphony: composed to celebrate the memory of a great man"
Quote:
In writing this symphony, Beethoven had been thinking of Buonaparte, but Buonaparte while he was First Consul. At that time Beethoven had the highest esteem for him, and compared him to the greatest consuls of Ancient Rome. Not only I, but many of Beethoven's closer friends, saw this symphony on his table, beautifully copied in manuscript, with the word "Buonaparte" inscribed at the very top of the title-page and "Ludwig van Beethoven" at the very bottom ...

I was the first to tell him the news that Buonaparte had declared himself Emperor, whereupon he broke into a rage and exclaimed, "So he is no more than a common mortal! Now, too, he will tread under foot all the rights of Man, indulge only his ambition; now he will think himself superior to all men, become a tyrant!" Beethoven went to the table, seized the top of the title-page, tore it in half and threw it on the floor. The page had to be recopied, and it was only now that the symphony received the title Sinfonia eroica.

- Beethoven's secretary, Ferdinand Ries

You are correct!

The Higgs Boson, often referred to as the "God particle," is the catalyst in the construction of CERN's Large Hadron Collider.
