All life is at some risk daily, therefore walking on the fine edge of discovery, is a journey worth taking.

    Yeah I guess they thought the same thing about nuclear fusion. It provides power and electricity to supplement modern life and gives man the ability to annihilate himself in one quick click of a button and that button always seems to be a bit of an object of contention. The question is do you want to unleash that creature out of the pond into the stream, when it doesn't quite know how to live in the pond yet?

    Maybe time to lay off the mushrooms, hmm?

    The LHC has already been operated, and provided good evidence for the existence of the HIggs Boson.

    And the collider does not create black holes. The masses involved are far, far, far, far too small. Far too small.

    In theory black holes can be produced at the Planck Mass level. Not black holes like the kind created after massive stars collapse, but it could produce quantum black holes. That's what people hear and assume when they hear black holes.

    The thing is if they are produced at all they don't last long at all and pretty much fizzle out with nothing really to show. Cosmic rays impact the earth at similar velocities and we haven't been sucked into a black hole so I don't worry about CERN.

    I know a few people I would like to see sucked into a black hole.

Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    The title has me curious. Not knowing nearly as much as some folks I am impressed by the phrase "Large Hadron Collider". Are there different sizes, land where are the "Small" and "Medium" one's and have they caused any problems, or if there is only one size why would someone use the term "large" if there was no other option? Was "Large" just used for "shock value"?
    I am beginning to think the "Miss Universe Pagent" is rigged. Have you noticed that all of the winners are from Earth ?
