Splat!
   
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the King’s horses And all the King’s menCouldn’t  put Humpty together again! Humpty Dumpty Sentado en un muro.Humpty Dumpty Se ha caído muy duro.Todos los caballeros Y jinetes del rey,Fueron a levantarloY no pudieron con él. 
   
In his 1928 book The Nature of the Physical World, which helped to popularize the term ‘time’s arrow’, Eddington stated:

Let us draw an arrow arbitrarily. If as we follow the arrow we find more and more of the random element in the state of the world, then the arrow is pointing towards the future; if the random element decreases the arrow points towards the past. That is the only distinction known to physics. This follows at once if our fundamental contention is admitted that the introduction of randomness is the only thing which cannot be undone. I shall use the phrase ‘time’s arrow’ to express this one-way property of time which has no analogue in space.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall;
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. 
All the King’s horses 
And all the King’s men
Couldn’t  put Humpty together again! 

Humpty Dumpty 
Sentado en un muro.
Humpty Dumpty 
Se ha caído muy duro.
Todos los caballeros 
Y jinetes del rey,
Fueron a levantarlo
Y no pudieron con él.

Selectrons, squarks, and all that really (s)matters
   
High diddle diddle,The sCat played the sFiddle,The sCow jump’d over the Moo-ino,The little sDog laugh’d to see such sCraft,And the sDish ran away with the Spoo-ino
                                                                              -sMother Goosed
   
Alternate view:
Supersymmetry is real and super particles actually exist, but not in the manner proposed by orthodox particle physics. The superpartners are actually the very same particles (as in the Standard Model) transformed by another operator. That is to say, different super particles do not exist, only particles behaving differently under the influence of a different operator. This can be thought of as a kind of universal quantized systole and diastole of spacetime of higher dimension at the scale of the fundamental particles. What occurs is a coordinated oscillation between Standard Model and Supersymmetric Model forms of the particles. More on this later (likely much later, so for the time being you can consider this just a tease.)
Well you were warned.

"Can you do addition?" the White Queen asked. "What’s one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one?" "I don’t know," said Alice. "I lost count."

Thanks to MT & Keroack for this brilliant cartoon they concocted some 20 years ago (I guess before word got around that Leibniz’ dream of a computing machine to house all one’s thoughts and ideas had finally been achieved.)

                                    Arthur Rackham, 1917

Ironically  .  .  .  although string theory has the potential to be the most predictive theory that physicists have ever studied — a theory that has the capacity to explain the most fundamental of nature’s properties — physicists have not as yet been able to make predictions with the precision necessary to confront experimental data. Like a child who receives his or her dream gift for Christmas but can’t quite get it to work because a few pages of the instructions are missing, today’s physicists are in possession of what may well be the Holy grail of modern science, but they can’t unleash its full predictive power until they succeed in writing the full instruction manual.
