The large hadron collider was fired up this morning. So far, it appears that we did not get sucked into a black hole. But these mad scientists are unlocking the secrets of the universe, so Fringe may soon be a reality series.
Not to rain on your parade, Fish, but they only started accelerating the particles this morning. The black holes will pop up in a month or so, when they start colliding those suckers.
I found this to be a good, informed read for a physics dummy like myself:
This, from the CNN article:
Skeptics, who claim that the experiment could lead to the creation of a black hole capable of swallowing the planet, failed in a legal bid to halt the project at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.
My God Man! Stop the experiment!
They interviewed a bunch of children on NPR this morning (BBC portion of it) and one of them said "If they destroy the world I'm going to blame the scientists". Good luck with that, kid.
I always reply that she should ask for the return of them, and please let me know if she gets an answer.
What's your favorite beer? "The fifth one, I think. That's the one that makes me handsome and fearless."
"These were the Dark Ages. Ages darker the anyone had ever expected."
The bible says Jesus is coming back ok guys, if a black hole came,
Jesus would come down and save you - so if your holy - forget about this so called physics and black holes.
“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest ... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.”
