More W, Z numerology

vixra has a preprint by Malcolm H. Mac Gregor, "The W + Z = T Gauge Boson and Top Quark Experimental Mass and Energy Equality"."Experimentally, the sum of the W and Z gauge boson masses is equal to the top quark t mass, to an accuracy of better than 1%..." There's lots more; the central "results" of the paper might be equations 7 and 8. The appearance of two factors of 1/alpha (alpha the fine structure constant), in the formula for m_top in terms of m_electron, is reminiscent of this mass plot, which is taken from arxiv's "The strange formula of Dr. Koide".
