    The interesting stuff is not happening till August. Not quite time yet to give away all your earthly posessions and kiss your arse goodbye

    but plenty of time for making jokes about its name with your mates

    Basically it will help us find the answers to *everything*.

    ...cept who the final cylon is, what the frack is going on in Lost or why we're all so obsessed with paris hilton.

    Isn't there a small possibility that it could create a black hole?

    I find it interesting that the turning on of this device and NASA's big announcement sort of coincide, give or take a few days.

    I reckon NASA's big announcement is that they know where the disastrous black hole we're making will come out (and have pictures!).

    Isn't it going to be some months after they 'activate' it they actually plan to start the collisions anyway?
