In which pajh predicts the future

The Large Hadron Collider will generate a tiny black hole tomorrow, and the entire Earth will be consumed and spat out into an alternate universe. The entire process will take less than Planck time and will be undetectable even by specialized instruments.

The new universe in which we find ourselves will be subtly different from the old one. I predict that it will be one in which everyone claims that their fear of the LHC was, in fact, merely ironic, and the media quickly forgets about it and moves on to the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012.

Tomorrow, if anyone's science officer suddenly gets a beard and starts killing people, please let me know.

You know, that defence isn't going to stand up in court after you've murdered all your colleagues.

People at work already know that if I show up at work without a beard I'm to be shot on sight. It's the only way to be safe.

Will the world end before or after that gigantic waste of time?

I loved the hype surrounding the LHC.

That will surely be the universe where the Doctor will save the day with his sonic atom-attrcating screwdriver?
If this ISN't in the next season, heads should roll..
