The Large Hadron Collider achieved collisions today http://webcast.cern.ch/lhcfirstphysics/
Now is the time to quote Prof Brian Cox "Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the Earth is a twat."

What, you'd use that money for the ignorant masses? There's more to life then mere survival.
They procreate-bringing stupid people into the world, they destroy each other, & they don't even know what the collider could do for the betterment of mankind.
Much like a Denny's in the Sahara.
But I digress.
I remember reading an article about this. Heard about it on NPR.

...Well ... Technically there isn't.There's more to life then mere survival.
Although i think i understand what you mean, and i agree. Some risks are worth taking.
Pssst... I has sketchbook
I swear to god, every time I see "Large Hadron Collider", I read it as "Large Hardon Collider", and it's driving me nuts.
we could have spent those 10 billion dollars on weapons, oh well maybe we will get black hole cannons out of this. -- politicians
Yay I am nerdily excited about this even though I'm no way skilled in the physics department - though I did read and love The Elegant Universe.
Does it make you a hack if you love physics but can't do the maths??
But yay so much awesome - Such a big step forward for science
Collider walks into a bar...
Bartender: "Whoa! That's one large Hadron y'got there."
Collider: "Yeah, and it's about time. Haven't been able to get it up for over a year."
Bartender: "So what happened."
Collider: "Well, I was thinkin' about how nice it would be to shoot some particles at work when I noticed Higgs boson go bouncing by, and...BINGO!"
Sorry...somebody had to do it...
