Things may soon start to get interesting.
Why is it every time I read anything about the LHC I’m gripped by both fascination and a sense of utter dread…..
You and me both. I think we’ve been conditioned by childhood TV showings of fifties SF movies where white-coated boffins dabble with things beyond their ken…
I think it’s that whole ‘Cool, they’re trying to recreate the big bang/ Oh MY God! They’re trying to recreate the BIG BANG!!’ that makes me quirk an eyebrow.
On the upside though, I’ve not (yet) seen any scientists working on it with improbable surnames…….
A friend of mine went to a scientific conference where one of the presentations was by a Dr V. Sinister.
I love that. Did he have an iron mask and a cape?
Ha! On a side note – I had a dentist appointment with a Dr Payne this morning…
MattC: Ok, thats A) incredibly awesome and B) distinctly disconcerting.
Really doesn’t help that the the LHC resembles something old Vic Von Doom would build…..
I agree with you all. The damn thing fills me with a feeling of ugh. And the fact that it broke down in the first place must mean something somewhere doesn’t like it. OOer!
