If I see or hear one more alarmist piece of crap about how turning on the LHC will make the world end, I am going to punch someone. FFS.

Eugh.. tell me about it. I had a rather loud "discussion" with someone at work today about how it won't destroy the planet.

Me too! I work for a scientific organisation! We KNOW how hard it is to get sign-off on potentially dangerous projects, and how the media blow things totally out of proportion and flat out LIE about risks. Who the hell would say 'let's plough BILLIONS into something that will probably blow the world up'? It just wouldn't happen.

For fuck sake, it's in Switzerland. The Swiss are the people that the Germans joke about being uptight.

Well, those idiots are clearly misinformed. When they turn on the LHC, they will create a teeny new universe which we can use to create new breeds of teeny slave aliens who will fetch our beer and make our beds.

People are so stoopid.

It certainly won't destroy the planet on the 10th, anyway - all they're doing is circulating protons in one direction.

The collisions aren't going to happen for another month or so.

I have to say, the first thing I think when you say something like that is "I'm out of reach..."

I didn't say I'd punch whoever said it. Just that I'd punch someone.

Awesome. Send me a text the next time you're standing next to someone I wouldn't like.
