You posted that after the LHC started up. :p
Is it dumb that I expect that thing to blow up a small section of the world?
And is it terrible that I think it would be awesome if that happened?
Yes, yes it is.
Mind you, I'm not what you'd call an impartial judge, since I live in Italy, which makes me entirely too close to the blasted contraption should it decide to pull a Half-Life and doom us all.
Doesn't help that one of the scientists photographed near it a while ago looks a whole lot like Gordon Freeman.
