It's alive!

Every single blog or web site that vaguely talks about physics is going to tell you about the LHC today... And nobody else has found the Higgs Boson yet... As Bee noticed, this has some people frightened.

There is no reason to worry, most physicists would tell you, the LHC is orders of magnitude to puny to be really dangerous... To create a really dangerous black-hole machine, physicsists would really need a few trillion dollars more... Or whatever the unit is above trillion...

Still, if we were going into a singularity, would we even see it?
