Scientists are stupid, really really stupid
Sure they build 'dump caverns' in case something goes wrong, but building a shack or something around sensitive equipment... they didn't even THINK of that. I bet there's only one working bathroom in the place.
the theory is that the hadron event theyre trying to see, a little bit of dark matter coming into existence, is so unbelievably unnatural and against the rules of reality that if it ever does happen, it would literally go back from that point in the future to stop itself from occuring, at this present point. i guess that comes in the form of bread... at least the laws of the universe have a sense of humor...
"A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather."

Yep, it's on the surface, with the bird's nest in the eaves....
[citation][nom]xaira[/nom]its wierd that all these things keep going wrong with something so expensive that took years of planning, im all for finding the god particle, but wats the sense if we find a black hole first?[/citation]
Someone has put forward the theory that it's being sabotaged from the future by people who know that it's a REALLY bad idea to start it up. Pretty funny stuff... you can probably find a rant online somewhere.
I tend to think that the risk is very small (negligable according to Physicists I know) and the knowledge to be gained could be huge... so it's worth it.
lol either it was one massive bread crumb or that is one fragile, poorly planned design. You'd figure with they built a majority of it underground for safety reasons that they would put a bit of effort into shielding any parts of it above ground. I'd like to see what a squirrel could do to that thing.
