You took the time to type out "Look in sig for kind of Les Paul" instead of just typing "Epiphone Les Paul Standard"?

Anyways, what you need to do is inspect the string to see where it breaks. Are you sure it's breaking at the bridge? Is it perhaps breaking at the tuner/nut?

Once you are sure that the bridge is the problem, get a magnifying glass and inspect the string slot on your bridge saddle to look and see if there are any edges noticably sticking out. If there is an edge, get a small metal file and file that away first. You can then fold a piece of fine sandpaper in half and use the folded edge to smoothen the inside of the slot.

I thought about that, but then I thought "If I put Epi Les Paul Standard, Someone is going to say, "It's in your sig, jackass." "

I just couldn't think of a way to win

I'm pretty sure, there's always a peace of the string at the very bottom (With the small ring thingy) that's about 2 inches long.

Thank you for the advice.

No problem . I hope it helps.. string breaking issues are so annoying if you can't find the cause.
