Been a while since the last post, blah blah whatever.  CNN has a story today about CERN’s new Large Hadron Collider — the one that’s supposed to ice-nine the planet or get us sucked into a subatomic-sized black hole. The title looks like fear-mongering but they actually do a decent bit of alleviating concern that we’re all going to be turned into a giant ball of strange matter. So, to counteract that, here’s the countdown to the end of the world: As I write this it’s at 7 days, 10 hours, not too long after X-day 11. I figure we have about the same chances of being whisked off by the saucers this year as the LHC has of destroying the entire planet.
