And in Other News...

The Large Hadron Collider was turned on and the world was not destroyed. Scientists cheered the historical moment with shouts of joy as the system powered up and began to hum and make "collider" like noises.

However, the celebration quickly turned to disappointment and dismay as everyone soon realized that no one was smart enough to read the results and explain if it was actually working.



"We think it's working," Nobel winning physicist Emil Loren is quoted as saying. "But we're just not sure. See these little red spots. We think that's good. The blue and green we're a little iffy on, but the red looks good."

Scientists are now working on the next phase of the CERN project which is to get smarter so they can determine if the LHC is working.

That is freaking hilarious. Reminds me of work...sell something, then figure out if we can build it. :)
