Scientists Say a Huge New Device Won’t Suck the Earth Into a Black Hole

Well, there’s one less worry for you. Apparently there is nothing to fear from the atom-smasher. Whew.

Thanks again to the Yahoo News leading headlines for making my general malaise seem inconsequential. I may be a bit bummed about not attending ALA, I may be overwhelmed by my household chores, I may be sick of the thunderstorms every single day, but at least the Earth won’t be sucked into a black hole. So there’s that.

We just had a hailstorm.

Granted, we're on another continent, but hail. In June. Quel bizarre.

Here's something else odd to make you smile.

Believe it or not, I had already heard about the unlikelihood of the earth being sucked into a black hole by that device. Yeah, that's the kind of news story that gets talked about chez nous. I've been informed that it's called a Large Hadron Collider. It's a super collider! It's going to be the largest in the world! Excitement reigns here.

That is indeed good to know. I was at ALA, the weather here is lovely (and was there as well) (if it makes you feel better, my job is stressing me out - and not in a good way)

Still it's good to know I can check that one worry off my list: no getting sucked into a black hole because a supercollider. *whew*
