CERN Big Bang Hadron Accelerator went live today

Postby adidasfiend » Wed Sep 10, 2008 8:29 am

So the world did not implode, nor did it explode. No demons poured from an extradimensional rift. I'm still here, or at least i think i am.. though doing the groundhog day thing in my cubicle could be viewed as hell....
I guess the next big doomsday will be 12/21/2012 or 12/23 depending on the calendar translation.

It's not gonna explode until they run the particles at each other. THEN the universe is gonna explode!

I normally don't trust the russian press but the first collide should occur on 10/21/2008... So that Tuesday will be the end of the world. Prepare now. =)

All I want to know is does the Accelerator have the "DOOM" attribute?

There're actually cameras at the facility that let you watch them 24/7 if you wish. It's funny how the professors go around minding their business ^^

But it's no fun until they come up with a feature where I can tap on my computer monitor and make them all scurry away like fish in a tank. ^_^
