The End May Be Near

061229_lhc_hmed_6p_hmedium I read about the world’s largest particle collider being sued over fears that they could cause the end of the world.  I don’t know about you guys, but I was wondering exactly how you would prove that the end is near.  It also got me thinking what if Homer Simpson worked at the particle collider and accidentally pressed the wrong button and a black hole developed that ate the world.  I found the article and the potential problems very intriguing. 

So if you got to pick how you wanted to go out would it in a blaze of glory, the vacuum of a black hole, or……fill in the blank?
