More on the Killer Science Thingy

I don't actually think it will happen, but I think it's awesome that someone is standing up to say, "Are you sure? Are you sure, you're sure?"

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."

  2. Uggh, on the one hand that killer science thing freaks me out but on the other hand I feel like a member of the uninformed masses getting all worked up about nothing.
