Are we dead yet?

It's zero hour at CERN today, and it looks like we're not dead. As a person with a physics degree I've been asked to explain what the deal is with the black holes and stuff. Frankly, I don't know. I did my degree 7 years ago. I just dunno. The point is though, that it's cool. And if they find the Higgs Boson that's good and if they don't there's a whole lot of PhDs to be funded. But more importantly, Google have a good animation for it.

you have a physics degree*? cool!!

I wasn't worried about the end of the world, honest;-) , but I did wonder if I'm now in some weird afterlife which is just the same as my old life, or if I'm having a dying moments sequence, like Donnie Darko.



* mine was psycholgy & statistics, so not cool at all.

That's fantastic - you really have to admire the chutzpah...

Saw you in the Harlot's talk on Saturday and then didn't find you again for the rest of the afternoon, so hi in retrospect!

Well, I am bitterly disappointed that I can't buy my own particle accelerator. I was hoping to lob balls of yarn in and see what would emerge...
