Far be it for me to want the world to end...
No, hell! Let me make myself perfectly clear:
I wake up every morning, drink a bottle of beer, pull open the curtains and hope to see a post-nuclear landscape. It's been a long time coming and for a while (after the collapse of the Soviet Union) I suffered years of depression...
However, I have all my hope he Large Hadron Collider... god damn, that sounds so sexy I need to run off to the toilet.

...of the same kind that are pruduced every day, every hour, every minute, even every second in out upper atmosphere naturally. When high energetic cosmic particles with extremely high velocities hits terrestrial particles in our atmosphere a lot of black holes are created. It term is "micro holes", and have masses minor that of a neutron, the size even more miniscule.
Originally posted by shavixmirNope. First part injections in August, first full circle by a bunch of protons planned for the start of September, world-ending black hole planned just in time for Sinterklaas. Put it on your list.
Does anyone know if they've kick-started the Large Hadron Collider yet?

I was just thinking about all this again...
Right. So this experiment costs over 80 billion dollars, right?
And what they're saying they want to find out is why some energy turns into matter and some doesn't (matter is energy as well though, but slowed down).
Now, if they find this little reason they can call it God or whatever.
...[text shortened]... .
So? What are they doing down there?
Are they creating a new energy source? What?

We know already that matter and energy is interchangable. We've done it, we've made the experiments, we've made our observations, and we've explained it.
The thing we want to observe is the Higg's particle. ...[text shortened]... o, with "we" I mean all people of our world, all of us, the humankind as a whole.
Originally posted by shavixmirI agree with the Iraqi war. Some gets oil, some loses oil. Finding massdestructive weapons was just a cover up, a way to make the war 'philantropic'.
A nice philanthropic answer.
However, the Iraq war is nothing but a grande investment. Weapons, oil, contracts... basically the tax payer invests a lot of money (the war machine) and business men and corporations reaps the rewards.
Nobody in this world is investing 80 billion (however small the amount seems) without a more than reasonable chance of ea ...[text shortened]... general knowledge... but I don't believe in Gods, tooth fairies or the milk of human kindness.

But noone knows what to do with the Higg's particle. It's just a piece of the grand puzzle that we call science.
Originally posted by shavixmirThis sort of research came up with nuclear technology. Pure science is strange that way. You know they'll come up with something dramatic sometime, but when, where and what? Nations that don't invest in science become second rate powers because their technology falls behind.
Are they just after the Higgs particle though?
Are they not up to other things at the same time?
