Today saw the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) switched on, with protons completing a full circuit for the first time.

It will still be a while before it performs useful experiements, but it all looks promising so far.

Meanwhile, I was tickled by the CERN LHC rap grin

This is so exciting!

This 6 billion dollar experiment is definitely worth it.
I am really curious as to whether they will find the God boson, but whether they do or not, it will be an important breakthrough in physics.

I met some crackpots today that were convinced this would create a "black hole" that would supposedly destroy the earth. Complete nonsense, but even if it were true, being consumed by a black hole would certainly rank up there as one of the most exciting ways to go. skull

Yep, a lot of people around me are saying this is stupid and pointless and that they hope the boom will only kill the scientists. And then there is some discussion about God.
mad After hearing that I had to throw up!

LONG LIVE SCIENCE!!

As advanced as science gets, it is always fun to know that we are still smashing things together to see what will happen.

Hail Science!

The software for this experiment was hacked into by computer hackers.

I'm kinda disappointed, they switch the silly thing on and Lucifer fails to appear. laugh

This music video puts the conspiracy theory to an awesome sounding song that I don't understand the lyrics to

Oh yeah I had forgotten how a dairy farmer told me that the EU is Satan's plot to bring unity in the world.
You know the "one world" thing of evil international treaties, co-operation between different people's of the world and all...
But if the world ends now what about Satan's plan to fool everyone in to democratically voting him the president of the world?

Yeah, that whole co-operation thing really gets in the way of being a pious, my-way-is-the-only-way-and-you-are-wrong, narrow-minded fool. Which (and it is so utterly unfortunate) seems to be so mindlessly widespread and popular.
