### Has the large hadron collider destroyed the world?

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'
I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

He has not built it obviously.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

And is there a yes/no answer to the question?

Physicist at CERN are going to create a quantum sized black hole. Because they believe that Hawking Radiation is correct, if it's wrong we are all doomed.

### Re: Has the large hadron collider destroyed the world?

I am hoping that the world is still not been destroyed?

### Re: Has the large hadron collider destroyed the world?

Reasons why the world will get destroyed by the LHS :
1) Uncontrollable explosion and melt down
2) Black Hole
3) Faster than light communication
4) Messing around with Higgs Boson and the other elementary particles

Sorry, I was talking about the whole news coverage of it being nonsense.

They can't really explain it to the public...
