Hardon Collider...Oh Yeah!

Today, the Large Hadron Collider is being activated.

What is the Large Hadron Collider?

It is the biggest particle accelorator in the world. It speeds up particles, and then collides them, and then studies the aftermath to learn answers to fundamental questions about physics.

I could tell you about it in achingly mind-numbing scientific detail, or ask my blogger friends to, or you could just go here:

Great, isn't it?

Unless it somehow causes a black hole that swallows up the entire Earth...just something to think about.

By the way, if you're a bartender, it'd be great to make a drink called the "Hadron Collider." Especially if that black hole forms....

"Sh**. World's ending".

"Fine, pass me a 'Hadron Collider'".

By the way, did you mean for the title of this post to be a sexual innuendo?

Well, in Sapientia, at the time, Ketchupland and others had made it a sexual innuendo when we were discussing it, so that's why I did it here. It was kind of a nod to the discussions in Sapientia. So yes, it is, but it's not as bad as it looks, haha.
