Large Hadron Collider: We all gonna’ die.

Tomorrow, the world’s largest particle accelerator will be switched on.  Streams of photons will be hurled at nearly the speed of light around a nearly 18-mile circular, magnet-lined tunnel, then smashed together in the hopes that they will replicate conditions resembling those of the “big bang.”

This sounds cool, until you read the fine print…  in the lower left-hand corner up there.

Umm… does this sound like the “plot” setup for a DOOM game to anyone else, or is it just me?

Somebody call Gordon Freeman.

    Gosh, it’s just a big atom smasher, and the possibility of something dangerous to happen is too small for that something to happen 😉 If it would have been real risk, scientists would inform us, or take measures against it, or, after all, never would have thought of taking this idea to reality. So stop worrying, listen to common sense and do not let this rumor by fools take over your mind.


    Umm… do you ALWAYS take blog posts like this at face value? Didn’t the cartoon demon tip you off?

    I spent some time doing some electrical work at a particle accelerator facility on the east coast. The people there were weird…really weird. Velcro shoes kind of weird. They were so smart that they couldn’t be bothered by having to spend time tying thier shoes. They had too many more important things to be thinking about.

    It was nice knowing you. 🙂


    Shotgun is loaded. Chainsaw is gassed. They ain’t gonna’ feast on MY viscera without a fight…
