|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!
What do you think about it?
Will destroy fabric of space and time
Probably won't damage much of the Earth, except France
Sounds a bit like 'Hard On' LOL
Hope it opens wormhole to Gamma Sector
thanks to jekesta for the idea
NB - comment about France stolen from a YouTube idiot

I think we should use the intertubes webbything to organise a grassroots self-defence: we can all hold on tight to bits of the universe at the same time.

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.
Thank you for getting the phrase "large hard-on collider" STUCK IN MY BRAIN.

LET IT BE THE WORMHOLE...
It's my dad's seventieth birthday that day. He's a big SF fan, so I've got my fingers crossed.

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