You wanna roll those dice?
I ran across THIS STORY last week and it's been bumping around in my head ever since:
But Walter L. Wagner and Luis Sancho contend that scientists at the European Center for Nuclear Research, or CERN, have played down the chances that the collider could produce, among other horrors, a tiny black hole, which, they say, could eat the Earth. Or it could spit out something called a “strangelet” that would convert our planet to a shrunken dense dead lump of something called “strange matter.”
I wish we had a Superman to keep an eye on us in case things go south.
