Today the NY Times printed an interesting essay on the subject that contains possibly the best sentence ever:
Besides, the random nature of quantum physics means that there is always a minuscule, but nonzero, chance of anything occurring, including that the new collider could spit out man-eating dragons.
Because you know what? I bet the science guys would be so psyched if that really happened. They would then be eaten by the man-eating dragons, but instead of dying in fear and terror, they'd be all, "wow, that is so cool! ow."
