    Stellar reporting from Fox as usual

    A quick look at the "Related Stories" section shows that in every single article that Fox writes about the LHC they call it a "doomsday machine" which is nothing more than ridiculous sensationalism. They also completely fail to mention the counter arguments that come up every single time that the same set of three or four concerns come up about the LHC.

    The energies of the particles in the LHC are orders of magnitude lower than the energies of the cosmic rays that constantly bombard every sizeable structure in the universe. Seeing as the Earth, the Sun, and the other planets have survived more than an hour without becoming black holes, the LHC poses absolutely zero risk of such an event

    Haha my roommates deemed it necessary to rename the LHC as
    the

    Large Hardon Collider.

    I swear to god if this thing goes off and I miss House, I will be pissed.

    HAHAHA

    Priceless.

    Maybe it will rip a hole through space-and-time and will first start at the time of the House episodes' recording. So you will be watching Dr. House be an arrogant, drug-addict, who is continuously right and then he is sucked into a black hole.
    Might be the best way to spend your last minutes, watching other people get sucked into a blackhole.

    The one second may be all that is needed for the rapidly accelerating gravity to suck earth's matter into the reaction.....
    If I'm understanding what you're saying right, you have zero understanding of black holes. I could say "some Conservatives wish all poor white males, African Americans, women, and any other minority were slaves." You would reply "those people are idiots... blah blah blah." Just because some "physicists" claim this or that, doesn't mean they're accredited or even have the right idea. If you ask a thousand people what 2x + 3x^2 + 8 is, even people who got A+s in Algebra 2, not every single one of them is going to get the problem right. Then you have black holes which are infinitely more complex than quadratic equations. Out of the hundreds of thousands of scientists, how come only a few seem to have a problem with this device considering it could "potentially end our lives." Don't say it's some big conspiracy theory. I doubt even those "evil science conspirators" would keep something quiet that would kill us all.
