The restart of the Large Hadron Collider, the massive, 17-mile-long particle accelerator in the Alps that is supposed to teach us about about the fundamental particles and properties of the universe (immediately before destroying the universe. not really. probably) has been delayed again. October 2009 is the new start up date.

Come on, scientists! If you wait too long, we won't care any more. You'll be all, "Hey, everybody, it's the biggest scientific machine in the history of science and machines, and it's doing something..."

And we'll all be adjusting our Halloween costumes, all like, "Whatever, scientists. The Higgs boson and the end of the world were totally September, 2008. Laterz."

Why don't you surprise us all by turning the world into strange matter sometime in August?

They should wait to turn it on until 12/21/2012. That would freak peeps out.

because then we'd all be dead. Life is worth living for a reason. I don't think anyone should have the right to tamper with it. Especially not scientists.

I assume you're also referring to the scientists that keep people alive by developing life-saving drugs and medical procedures?
