  • What if Every Black Hole in the Universe…

    -was originally a planet where the last words uttered were, “Okay, fire up the supercollider!”


    National Geographic has a good article on the supercollider and the God Particle online now. See you on the Event Horizon!

    *Don’t worry, I’ve run the numbers and this will not create a tiny black hole. It will, however, open up a stargate.

    Aw man, it’ll just make a *microscopic* black hole at worst. Just, you know, close off the room and put some caution tape up and it’ll all be good.

    Christ almighty man, you’ve been reading too many comic books.

    (Oh wait, is that National Geographic? Uh oh.)

    Yup. We’re all going to die.

    I hope they fire it up early on Wednesday because I have to work that day.

    Your opening line made me LOL. And that’s why we’re BFF.

    Looking at this makes me think of the creepy-as-hell “Disney” film THE BLACK HOLE.

    Mostly that menacing score. “Da-da-da-DA-da-da-da-da…”

    Down wit’ V.I.N.C.E.N.T. and Old B.O.B., though.

    It’s an affront to God and man.

    Just like Beetroot….my most hated of all roots!

    Ban it I say.

    Supercollider? Didn’t he die in Journey into Collision#124?

    Actually, he appears in Age of the Sentry issue #2, no joke!

    What? A little super-massive black hole never hurt anyone. It’s all fun & games until everyone and everything you ever knew is speghettized.

    Will it create a cool James Spader-style Stargate, or a cheaply made Sci-Fi Channel Stargate?

    These things are important….

    “It’s just a tiny little black hole! Just a wafer-thin!”

    You just know that those scientists at CERN are using the LHC in the off-hours to fire frozen chickens and Matchbox cars at each other.

    I think they are secretly trying to make the Atom’s costume.

    I wonder if they could manufacture and market little black holes we could keep as pets.

    No worries folks, it is a government project. When was the last time one of those actually did what it was supposed to do?
