    Funnily enough my office was evacuated this morning.

    As we filed out to announcements of “this is not a test” (which of course it was), we couldn’t help speculating whether as well as fire and bomb procedures, we should now have a black hole procedure…..

  2. Pah, scientist these days, with their fancy Swiss particle accelerators! In my days we only needed a large, round, conical shaped, ebony tub, some fine white sand (or sugar), and a camera to recreate the big bang. And it worked perfectly…..

    Talking of the Big Bang, I give you….Barenaked Ladies….

    Not as good as the Galaxy Song but hey, what is?

    Apparently they’ve only run it at 1/4 of full power so far, slightly less than the old CERN accelerator. So there’s still time for the world to end!

    Should have known it would break down… Bet it was built by the same bunch who did the (not) bouncing Mars probe Beagle 2. 🙂

    All I know is: we’re still here.

  7. I don’t believe humans can create something so powerful to end the world.. I do believe it could cause some damage but definitely not a black hole.. What next? ‘Explorers find the Loch Ness Monster’!?

    They already did… isn’t it simply a sturgeon?
