I am glad I checked that website.

I thought I heard something that sounded like the earth being turned into a quantum singularity but it turns out it was just the toaster.

Dan Brown called this thing out, way back in Angels and Demons. it's just a matter of time before this thing starts producing anti-matter in the Vatican, and scientists start holding the world ransom. Actually, I guess that does sound kind of ridiculous when you think about it.

Yes, Dan Brown! Now I remember where I first read about this thing. Somebody get Tom Hanks on this pronto -- we need answers!

They thought the world would blow up as part of tha chain reaction of splitting the atom when developing the Atomic Bomb.

Isn't nice to know scientist have these concerns, but in their pursuit of knowledge press on anyway.

Wonder if this thing will ever justify the expense?

only if i get a hover board, and shoes that tie themselves.


I know a guy who's been working on an electric shoe lace tier for almost thirty five years, the appearance of those shoes will kill him.

bah, this whole atom splitting thing is just a very expensive boondoggle designed to milk money from rich governments. (i'll steal some informative dialog from George Carlin to try to explain)
say you have a crumb, and you split it. you dont have 2 half of crumbs.... you have 2 crumbs!!!! you split an atom....... :P

yet another reason to go to Max's German beer fest and drink too much.....
