Those of you not paying attention might have missed this:
CERN, a really big science project, is smashing particles together hither and yon, and finding the Higgs is apparently just around the corner. (The Higgs Boson, aka The God Particle.)
There is a school of thought that all this mini-Big-Bang particle-smashing might lead to the creation of a black hole, at which point we'll just have time to bend over and kiss our asses goodbye before the baby black hole swallows us up, rocks and all, and spews us into an alternative universe ...
Have a nice day.
