You won't see me coming....
Scientists who are preparing to 'switch on' the most powerful particle accelerator ever built, have received death threats from critics who fear it could destroy the Earth.
Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a t***,Now that's an appropriate response. Well said, that man.
>> Turning on such a machine is >> nothing like as simple as >> flipping a switch.What a shame. If any project needed a huge red button, this was it!
I am quite looking forward to this. I didn't win the lottery so I am feeling lucky, punk.
"Now that's an appropriate response."Yes, it was good, wasn't it? I expect you could hear the anguished yelps of the Manchester Uni PR people in the bowels of CERN itself... "If any project needed a huge red button, this was it!"I guess you can't leave those kinds of aesthetic decisions just to engineers...;)
Presumably they plan to carry out their death threats if and when the scientists destroy the world.
And now for some black holey tracksThere's a black hole in my bucketBlack hole in my shoeOh black hole-ay-mioBlack hole lotta loveHe's got the black hole world in his hands(Ok, that's enough, I've had a death threat from the provisional wing of the Cum-by-yah club.)
I presume the experiment happened. I can't get to a radio or TV. Did the world end?
It's tomorrow, isn't it? The experiment, that is...#Let's hope Gordon Brown doesn't contact them to pass on his good wishes, or we're all royally screwed... ;)
