The recent problems at the Large Hadron Collider will now keep it idle until spring 2009. The official press release is here. [...] The total amount of time to [fix things] will spill over into CERN's scheduled winter maintenance/shutdown period, which is partly done to save money on electricity during the period of peak demand.Nooooooooooooooooo!! I want the End Of The World to happen due to a science experiment, well before some crackpot 'world leader' decides he can't keep his grubby hands off the Big Red Button!
And also, as another commenter said:
I spent all my money over the last 6 months on alcohol and parties, secure in the knowledge that the world would come to an end this October when the LHC came up to full power.Amen to that!
This is unacceptable. I demand they destroy the world now.
