Big Bang Big Thoughts


Well, over in Europe they're getting ready to flip the switch on the big super-collider, looking for extra dimensions in space. There are plenty of end of the world theories on what happens when they throw the big switch and send protons smashing together at 99.9% the speed of light, which should create similar conditions to the universe just after the Original Big Bang, which, if you were educated as I was in public schools, is not a new McDonald's burger offering.

I personally am hoping for a time warp that throws us back to Ronald Reagan's Presidency, although in truth a giant expanding ball of seething hot particles does suggest a more Democrat than Republican starting point.

I suppose it would also be nice if all of Europe were suddenly neutered...I mean, more than they already are now

One of the things scientists are looking for is the "God particle":
Major spin-offs have already emerged from earlier particle accelerator experiments at CERN, the European nuclear research organisation based in Geneva where the LHC is housed.

It is credited with pioneering radiotherapy machines and even the world wide web. One of the aims of the LHC is to hunt for the Higgs boson, the so-called "God particle".

The Higgs is said to be the so-far undetected key to mass. If scientists can prove its existence, it could pave the way for manipulating the gravity which exists in all mass - rather like Star Trek "tractor" beams.
Well, I hope they find the God particle, because I've always wanted a tractor beam, although if I had to choose what I'd really like from Star Trek it would be some of those hot alien chicks Captain Kirk was always hooking up with. Who knows...maybe tomorrow morning there'll be a shift in space and time and Hillary Clinton will morph into that Borg babe...then again, maybe not...

Wait a minute.These guys from CERN are frauds. We all know AlGore invented the internet, not to mention, along with Tipper, being the couple Love Story was modeled after. Now he's saving us from global warming.Of course, since we haven't seen a glacier in Ohio in 15,000 years, I not sure how this constitutes news.

Hillary Clinton as the Borg Babe? Michael, you may more onto something than you realize! If you do a little looking around, I think you'll find that the Borg Babe is the reason B-HO got out of Illinois in the first place...

My luck the alien babe would be a skank ho.
Then I'd have to explain how I got the same STD that Marvin the Martian has....

If there is going to be any morphing please let it be into Jolene Blalock (T'pol). The hottest Vulcan this side of Zeta Reticuli.

The best essential information is this, that you have try to do very well approaching for that homelessness body and their helping hand. I am so inspired about that, after read your this useful written articles and your opinions also which is so attractive for do something for those
