Hey Bento, you remember I posted about the Large Hadron Collider about to fire up at CERN last year? Basically they haven’t been able to switch it on yet because bits of it would have fallen off or something, which cheered me up – at the time I worried that it could cause a total protonic reversal. Now it seems, it’s even worse than that; according to these dudes in Hawaii it will cause a mini black hole right under my bathroom here in Geneva which expands and expands to swallow the universe, or maybe turn the world into a small turd-like lump of “strange matter” shaped like a burrito.
And what do the CERN scientists say to reassure us? Basically, they don’t know. According to one of them, Dr Arkani-Hamed:
because of the dice-throwing nature of quantum physics, there was some probability of almost anything happening. There is some minuscule probability, he said, “the Large Hadron Collider might make dragons that might eat us up.”
