Personally I'm waiting for the porn remake - Black Holes: Large Hardon Collider

How the hell did Andrew Marr resist the temptation, on Radio 4 yesterday morning, to go "and now the moment approaches as the switch is flicked and the proton beam begins toOHMYGODOHMYGODNOPLEASEGODNO" and then do that thing where you put your finger in your cheek and make a popping sound, before suddenly cutting the live link to London?

That's what I would have done, anyway...

v.g. sir. I bow to your physics-pun skills. This is why arts graduates are useless in the media...

Philip Cross said...

Adam, is that the biggest 'end of the world' scenario involving Andrew Marr which you can come up with?

(Someone had to refer to you know what in a roundabout way.)

Well... yeah, but that's more roundabout than the bloody tunnel the LHC is housed in. You could say it goes for Miles, in fact...
