[livejournal.com profile] sassette726, you have more time to repent, which I'm sure is handy. Switch on has been put back until 10th September.

Option B will just have to wait. Damnit.

Ah! Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] clawbug.

"The initial particle beams are due for injection in August 2008, the first attempt to circulate beam through the entire LHC is scheduled for September 10, and the first high-energy collisions are planned to take place after the LHC is officially unveiled, on October 21, 2008."

MAYBE OPTION B IS STILL GO.

I just deleted the post I assume you saw it on - I found out that

"The initial particle beams are due for injection in August 2008, the first attempt to circulate beam through the entire LHC is scheduled for September 10, and the first high-energy collisions are planned to take place after the LHC is officially unveiled, on October 21, 2008." - from Wikipedia

So....they DO something tonight, but not as much as we hoped. Meh!

But it may still go oddly wrong and spark Option B.

We're hoping for blimps, you see.

There's an insane rainstorm with lightning flashes of extraordinary magnitude, right here. Almost cinematic. As if someone somewhere is meddling with forces they do not comprehend and nature whipped out the whole orchestra.

Maybe they're standing in Geneva, soaked in rain and clenching their fists at the sky, shouting "This time I'll get you, Higgs! This time!"

I still feel a little down over the fact that they don't go all the way tonight. But I assume that's why they took down lhcountdown.com ...

Goddamnit. And there I was hoping I wouldn't have to fake up a reason to explain to my mother why I've been signed off sick.

"Yeah... the reason I'm not working? Well, there is this whole world-has-ended issue..."

WHY is Batman wearing a kilt?

the important question is "Is it Bat-gimental?"

It must get nippy, swinging about in that.

YAY! That's good, because I missed the Mets game today and I'd hate to be blinked out of existence without seeing David Wright one last time!

By the way, should we say "Commence Primary Ignition" as they did before destroying the planet of Alderaan? :-P

YES.

YES.
A thousand times yes.

Still here...

Wait, some aliens gated in. Be right back.

Bloody aliens. That's the NZ scientists' fault, what with their stargate parallel dimension machine.

I missed him hitting a game-winning home run today, which would be terrible conditions under which to die.

And all of which is probably totally meaningless to very British you...
