The Higgs Boson is one of the most monumental discoveries in science ever.
Particle physicists belief it was a Higgs-like particle that set off the creation of our universe. By studying the Higgs Boson we can now look at how the universe was not only formed
but what it was like before the Big Bang.
With a discovery like this we have massive sociological implications which can relate to completely disproving the standardized view of religions and the creation of the universe by a god/gods. Religious beliefs will otherwise cease to have any argument (as if it does already) which would include the whole "well you don't know what set off the big bang" and such.
But that is far from the most exciting possibilities when it comes to the discovery of the Higgs Boson.
With the Higgs Boson being what it is (Essentially the inadvisable property that holds all mass together), we are now able to have the potential of traveling inter-dimensionally, Traveling through time (backwards and forwards), we can now discover Worm-holes and gateways to other universes. We now how the ability to travel to parallel universes and to discover if all of these possibilities do in fact exist. All science within these fields point to the likely-hood of their existence, with the Higgs Boson we can confirm and potentiality use them.

hopefully soon enough it can be used to instantly remove all ignorant people like you from the planet. the world would be a better place. such ignorance is staggering.

That has NOTHING to do with science whatsoever. That is a political issue. To argue that "science has no benefits" is immensely stupid, especially since we are communicating on a direct offshoot of science!

Commercial applications to theoretical physics (keep in mind that physics is only theoretical until it is applied):
Satelites (all types, including SBTs, rockets and space flight, nanotechnology, silicon chips (PC's), electricity, solar power (all types of power), semi-conductors . . .
I'm sure I could go on, but you get the idea, right?
