They fired up the Large Hadron Collider this morning. There are two things I enjoy about the LHC:

  1. The science involved is almost completely beyond the comprehension of the general public, yet they were able to build it anyway.

  2. The science involved is so obscure that the media has chosen to focus instead on the whacko “doomsday” scenarios.

The Internets were down in the office this morning. Turns out the LHC was not responsible. (Hi, Marc!)
