04:59 pm - When Hadrons Collide
Is switching on the Large Hadron Collider an interesting scientific experiment or an act of defiance against god which will inevitably lead to the destruction of the cosmos?

There's only one way to find out.... FIGHT! er... poll!

Poll #1255839 Large Hadron Collider

What do you think about it?

Interesting experiment
7(25.9%)
Hubris
0(0.0%)
Will destroy fabric of space and time
0(0.0%)
Probably won't damage much of the Earth, except France
0(0.0%)
Sounds a bit like 'Hard On' LOL
0(0.0%)
Hope it opens wormhole to Gamma Sector
5(18.5%)


thanks to jekesta for the idea

Oh, and if I remember correctly, it was boing boing where I saw the (paraphrased) quote: "It's got a 10^-19 chance of imploding the universe; whereas you've got a 10^-11 chance of spontaneously evaporating while shaving."

You might be too young to remember the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, but that was more or less the theory.

Definitely wormholes and time travel, else what's the point?
