I got your Large Hadron Collider, hanging right here..
I had a comment from some guy in California (who I’ve known for over 40 years) asking what my point was regarding my last posting.
If he still doesn’t get me, what’s the point (no pun intended) to go on writing?
O.K., well then fire up that bad boy Large Hadron Collider, and if we don’t all vanish in a puff of smoke then whatever good comes from knowing what the universe might have been like right after the Big Bang better be at least interesting.
If not, then the folks at CERN might want to lock the gate before the pitchfork waving villagers get there with their lanterns blazing.
It’s only my feeling, but if there’s even one chance in a billion that this thing might blow up bigger than Teri Hatcher’s career, let’s just give it a miss, eh?
I’ve taken to stating the question as either 1. What’s in it for me, or in a more world-view version, 2. What’s the upside for all of us?
Will the world get some sort of discovery that in 20 years will lead us to a way to get an even better and bigger picture on our ultra-wide screen neutron-plasma monitor screen? And, will that make the crap that’s on t.v. now be easier to tune the world out with?
I’m just saying……..
