    I don't know what it is but I don't like the sound of it! [​IMG]

    I'm going to hide in my closet and surround myself with salsa just in case!

    Now I know why our various SETI projects have not found intelligent life beyond Earth. Their scientific knowledge increased until they built one of these puppies. Then they created a few tiny black holes that the scientists said were harmless that ate up their planet.

    Nothing to worry about though. Our scientists assure us that even if we did accidentally create some black holes they wouldn't be a problem for many, many, many, many, many lifetimes of (a mosquito) the universe.

    Well they're only trying to recreate the conditions of less than a millionth of a second after the Big Bang. A Big Bang in Switzerland couldn't hurt us here in America could it? [​IMG]

    I forgot.... how far did the first Big Bang go???

    this is CERN correct? Why does this sound familiar, I think I read a book that had this in it. Maybe it was Angels and Demons, can't remember, driving me nuts!

    I've bought up all the local supplies of Silica, so I'm safe here.

    Silica does absorb black holes, right?

    If they are simulating the "big bang" by producing a "small bang", will they create a whole new "small universe"?

    We'll all have our own little "mini-me"!

    I wonder if I could trade it in for a full-sized Alizée? Now THAT would be a big bang! [​IMG]

    The IRS is a black hole. It swallows up a good chunk of my money.
