LHC is online -vwv

If you haven't heard by now, the Large Hardon Hadron Collider is now online. I was hoping the world would end on Wednesday so that I don't have to work any more but that didn't happen. Apparently, Wednesday was just a beam test and they got the proton beams to go in both directions just fine. The actual collision will be a month or two down the road.

I don't really think the LHC is capable of destroying the world but let's hear what these scientists have to say about crossing beams of protons.

Dr. Egon Spengler: There's something very important I forgot to tell you.
Dr. Peter Venkman: What?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don't cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
Dr. Peter Venkman: I'm a little fuzzy on the whole "good/bad" thing here. What do you mean, "bad"?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.
Dr. Ray Stantz: Total protonic reversal!
Dr. Peter Venkman: That's bad. Okay. All right, important safety tip. Thanks, Egon.
