We were watching the news this morning and noted that the Hadron Collider had been cranked up a gear and was busy on it's quest for the creation of dark matter. (My husband obsesses with this and blames the collider for all sorts of natural disasters, much to my amusement.) Trying to make light of the subject, I joked that I hoped that I was having a better day in a parallel universe. (I've spent the morning clearing up after a geriatric, incontinent canine, whose bladder defies the laws of nature, nothing that small could produce that amount.)
It got me to thinking as I was digging in manure for the potatoes, what could I be doing in a parallel universe? I could be in a universe where 5 foot 55 year old's were revered.
Ahh the possibilities!
Hello Popit. I agree with your husband. I think allowing the Hadron Collider to continue operating is madness.
Let's all just hope they're not successful, because to the best of my knowledge they don't have a plan in place for 'reversing' what they might achieve.
I know what you mean, they had an expert on laughing at the concerns in a most off hand way, whilst the presenter inquired about the likelihood of a black hole appearing and pointed out that theoretical science can go a bit wonky.
I just make light of it because there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.
They should stop messing with it immediately before they accidentally attract the Dark Overlord of the Universe to our planet... unless they also attract Howard the Duck to fight him. That'd be pretty cool.
Personally I'm hoping for Dumbledore...and will probably get Voldemort.
Ah FFC, I think the Dark Overlord might already be here, are you familiar with the work of Tony Blair? (Just kidding Labourites, I know that there's an election, but it's a bank holiday, lighten up.)

After reading so much feedback on the global warming issue, I wondered if anyone had any thoughts on this Large Hadron Collider thing going on in Switzerland. Apparently they are trying to make little black holes...

As the Large Hadron Collider finally starts doing what it was designed to do some are worried.Are Higgs Boson particles so abhorent to nature that they are somehow affecting its operation from the future?...

Scientific progress or hype or playing with fire? Is it a waste of time and money or is there something important to be discovered from it?What do you think?

I had a dream last night which appears to be one of a series as the memories of it are tangled up with the past few days. Luckily I can recognise symbolic characters and things which tells me that this is coming...

An unusual subject line I expect!The theory of schrodinger's cat is a paradoxical thought experiment that illustrates the concept of parallel universes. It has a cat in sealed in a box of some sort with some sort of...
