    We've not got to the colliding part yet...

    When they start smashing things together we get to blackholeland... until then we're merely whizzing things around very fast.

    I'm still hoping a dragon will fly out of the machine in a few weeks time. That or a time traveller.

    After all, it's been suggested that a dragon from an alternate universe is as likely as a black hole swallowing us all, and that for time travel to work you could only go back as far as the invention of the first time machine... Something to come out of on the other end. I believe it's been speculated that this thing could act as that?


    A dragon riding time traveller should be more than a match for one lousy black hole!

    Aww they could at least have a small collision maybe one that produces the same amount of energy as a gnat hitting a windscreen

    Wouldn't that energy depend on a few specifics?

    I mean, if it's a future-car, which recently flew out of the collider and set of towards Antarctica on an inter-time skiing holiday (the first of it's sort, no less), and happened to hit a gnat which came from another universe (and actually looked a little like a tiny dragon), which also flew at mind boggling speeds, it's possible even that could open a local black hole...

    Right?

    Teenage son tried suggesting that there wasn't much point doing his homework last night!

    Fortunately he was easily persuaded that, if the world didn't literally end, he might wish it had if his Maths wasn't ready for marking this morning!
