Geneva (Switzerland) - When the LHC is switched on in less than two days, Switzerland may finally pay the ultimate price for never having chosen sides. In this case, for deciding not to choose to walk on the side of caution. That is, if what many scientists, watchdog groups and concerned activists believe is about to happen. The worst case doomsday scenario resulting from the operation of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) involves the total destruction of the Earth within minutes or days of the planned online time. The best case doomsday scenarios involve a slow poisoning of the Earth through unexpected radioactive emissions. So, is the sky really falling? No, because many scientists believe that all such fears are unfounded and even silly.

LHC is most definitely a ticking time bomb, or not... [article link]
Again, I can't stress how excited I am about this project, and how DISAPPOINTED I will be if it turns out to be a dud... I think I spend every day in an office waiting for something exciting to happen, like perhaps Moshiach coming or the revelation of G-d, and I'm generally bored out of my mind with my life. Yes, I have my constants in life which are wonderful [wife, son, family, few friends], but I can't believe the most exciting thing outside of my family is hearing over and over again how Obama is a socialist (and he is), or what McCain or Palin said. This is a very sad life, and I wish something more exciting were going on in the world -- something I can believe in.
