With the discovery of what looks very much like a weakly coupled Higgs boson, we have at last direct experimental evidence about how electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) is realized in nature.  The next step in understanding EWSB is the hunt for partners to the top quark: is naturalness relevant for understanding the TeV scale, or not? I'll explain what makes these searches hard, discuss the current status of stops and other top partners, and propose a search in a novel final state, using novel variables.
