End of the World is Nigh - Mark your calendar 10 Sept 08

I have it on good authority that the world is going to be blown into oblivion on September 10 next.

No, it's NOT wronwright. It's CERN.

He theorises (and he is a physics minor from Berkeley) that blundering boffinry bosses at the LHC's controls might catapult the entire Earth through a rent in the very fabric of reality into another and more hostile universe; perhaps one in which basic processes essential to life - for instance brewing - couldn't work, or where peckish man-eating dinosaurs ruled. Alternatively, meddling atom-smasher chiefs might inadvertently compact the Earth and human race down to the size of a pea - using a black hole, duh - rashly turn the planet and perhaps the entire galaxy into soup*, or unleash a runaway plague of magnetic monopoles.
I'm sure wronwright has something to do with it.

Thanks to Wand, Kaboom and Mehaul.

If you want to see a video produced by the scientists at CERN, which clearly explains the conceptualisation of the Large Hadron Collider and what it expects to achieve, have a look at this, and wonder why Kaboom is going to happen on the 10th September - with people like these in charge...
