Was it officially unveiled last night? Is that entry wrong?


No, that just means the LHC is turned on. It's only going at 7% power and can only gradually amass energy to the point that next month the first collision takes place.

Gradually amass energy? Why don't they just plug it into another outlet or two?

If S-Hawk is cool with it, then I'm cool with it.

12:15 am. Scientists activate Large Hadron Collider on Swiss-French border.

12:20 am. High-energy collision of sub-atomic particles create voracious black-hole, which threatens to swallow entire planet.

12:25 am. Gurgling Vortex of Astrophysical Suck meets Gurgling Vortex of Diamondbacks suck.

12:30 am. Black hole realizes it cannot possibly compete with recent Arizona results in terms of pure, undlluted suckage, and evaporates in shower of extremely-embarrassed radiation.

12:35 am. Jon Rauch eats the remnants. Catastrophe averted!

lol

Fixed, although I can't seem to cancel out the Vortex of Diamondbacks suck. :-B

Well, in their defense, this bugger opened at 7% power yesterday. I believe it needs more than 1 month before it will have accumulated the energy needed to destroy the earth completely. Right now, I think we're only at risk of losing Switzerland and a chunk of France which is an acceptable risk in my book.

Unfortunately, that's the good chunk of France. :-b
