LHC Countdown Answered

They have started the final countdown for the LHC.

Some say that it will find the God particle.

Others say that it will kill us all.

I say hope for the best, but [http://instructables.com/community/Its-the-End-of-the-World-As-We-Know-It-.../ prepare for the worst.]

some people who are usually pretty knowlegeable about such things pointed out that even if the machine does form microscopic black holes, and even if they don't evaporate immediately, you're talking about black holes that are so small (much smaller than a proton, for instance) that they'd have a lot of trouble interacting with any normal particles anyway.

Just in case something happens tomorrow while I'm at school...I love you all <3

Except for you Nacho...

Of course you do not realize it, but the universe ended already. What we are experiencing now are fleeting moments of consciousness as our whole existence disintegrates, like stars off a firework, to nothing.

I'd also like to say goodbye, in case anything happens, and I really love all of you guys, and if we die, then best of luck, especially if you're Buddhist (not sure how reincarnation would work after an apocalypse) .

And oh yeah Keith-Kid... I was the one who stole your boxers and replaced them with Godzilla underwear, not Kiteman.

Well there going to smash there first particle on October 27, 2008. They just turned it on and tested to see if the beam went all away around the LHC, which it did.

I said "meh" recently as well.

Give me another couple of weeks, and I'll be posting block-trigger K'NEX guns.

Heh. I just realized that I just said meh, too.

Playing with the new text toy, are we?

Does anyone know the time theyre gonna activate it (GMT)?

Bearing in mind that most people there have never existed outside university culture, with a university sense of humour, what are the chances, just around 0700 tomorrow, of the live webcast suddenly featuring a loud claxon and a worried voice saying Oh, SH..... just as the image goes to static?

I highly doubt this can do any damage it's under a vacuum!!! I wonder how long it takes to create that vacuum?

Such an awesome picture. So awesome.

I HAVE DECIDED THAT I HATE THE LHC!! I have barely been able to turn around at school today without kids demanding to know if it was true that we are all about to die in a big bang when somebody switches this thing on, it was on the news, you know, so it must be true... It's harder than you'd think to un-educate children who get their high-level physics from Bruce Willis films...

Whoa! Never seen you type in all caps before...

Trend micro has blocked this site.
Reason: crime.

:(

Any alternate links?

Don't fall for it...don't look at it...slowly back away from the avatar...don't aaaadmire it...don't say I didn't warn you.

It will not end the world.

I dunno, but why does it look like Kiteman standing in the core of that thing or does not Kitewife know that this is built out in the garage while pretending to perfect jam jar jets?

Good grief, so it does!

Listen, if it does all go badly wrong, it wasn't me!

Is there a bigger resolution image? I would love to have that shot as my wallpaper.

Oh, thanks. I'm not really with it at the moment.
