Supercollider

Does it make me a bad person if, when I woke up this morning and turned on the news to find NO reports of antimatter-charged symbiotic head-crabs, carbon-devouring land octopi or even time-displaced Pre-Cambrian Megafauna swarming out of a freshly-born gravity well on the Franco/Swiss border... I was just a little bit dissapointed?

You're not alone. I thought when the next political choice was between a black President, and a follow up Republican ( With a soon to be Gilf in tow.). I figured the world was coming to an end. Then I read more about the Hadron Collider, and the pieces all seemed to finally be falling into place. (For the record, I'm half black, so I don't care what color the next pres. is.) Thanks for the regular updating though.

I too was dissapointed. If it had have blown up I wouldn't have to have listened to the rest of the meanless uninformed gibberish from 15 year old dumbasses about black holes, something they don't understand.

They don't start slamming the photons or protons or whatever until next month. Hold your breath until then. :P

Better prepare a welcome committee for our new overlords that are coming next month.

That, or find a Mute scientist who knows how to use every weapon EVER to fight them for us.

Next month is going to be so darn exciting.

Nice to have something to look forward to. ( I need to get around to choosing a name for when I post.)

Hooray! I have a name.

It ain't over yet. According to the story I read, a scientist said if something does go wrong, we won't know about it for another four years, at which point a beam of light will shine out of the Indian Ocean, and nobody will know why.

oh please, everyone *knooows* the end of the world isn't until december 21, 2012, as per the mayan(?) calender. or was it the aztec?

i'm much more interested that we now have 3d images of the internal structure of a hadrasaur. yeah, a fossilized dinosaur mummy has given new insight into dino-anatomy.
