    It wasn't named the LARGE Hadron Collider without a reason. LHC FTW!

    Thats a win right there.

    So what, its like 7 trillion volts with basically no amps? How unfun is that. I was expecting some usage of like 98237458976239857632498756watts.

    So much WIN that it would take an alternate universe to apropriately convey.

    But we'll need displays illuminated with blacklights to un-see the games.

    This is with out a doubt so much distilled WIN!!!!!



    See, this is why I love it here!!!!

    I live my life under the assumption that a "genious scientist" will do just that. In perspective, everything seems damn fine, huh?

    Whether or not the theories that are being tested at CERN prove to be incorrect, that's still a success. Failure is just as important as success in the world of science. People tend to forget that.

    Yeah that's what they like to tell you. A good rule of thumb, failure does not get funding.

    As cool as Dark Matter sounds, it's just like Regular matter but with anti-properties.

    That's a silly way of looking at it. There's ALWAYS going to be funding for scientific pursuits, regardless if whether or not a route or two ends in failure.

    I'm looking at it from the perspective of a career scientist*. There will always be some funding for science, but you won't necessarily be the one to get it :)


    *I'm not presently a career scientist

    True, this I can agree with. I just meant that there's no stopping overall progress, it's demanded by our species and therefore must be pursued.

    You're thinking of antimatter, that's not the same thing as dark matter. Antimatter is real, dark matter for now is theoretical mumbo jumbo.

    Antimatter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-matter
    Dark matter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_matter


    Even if Hawking radiation is real and any micro black holes produced in the future dissipate before anything can happen that's not the only concern. Some are concerned that strangelets will be produced and convert the earth in to a strange/quark star.

    Wouldn't that suggest that they travel "at" the speed of light? Your arguement is flawed special one.

    When we are talking about stuff like that, 99.99% isn't 100. And i don't think that 99.9999% either is 100% :D
    All i can say is "darn, no boom yet"
