Kiss Your Ass Hello

As a public service, I remind you that tomorrow, September 10, 2008, a bunch of nerds in Switzerland will fire up the Large Hadron Collider, attempting to recreate the origins of the universe by accelerating protons to 99.999999 per cent of the speed of light and then smashing them together.

The chances that their attempt to create the beginning will actually create the end are small, to be sure, but still.. might want to carry an umbrella.
