Large Hadron Collider goes online Sept. 10

The Large Hadron Collider is all set to power up on September 10th. The 17 mile-long particle accelerator will either teach us new and exciting things about the origin of the universe, or create a miniature black hole that will destroy the Earth. Fun!

So, if you've got something unpleasant to do in the next few weeks- like a Dentist's appointment or seeing the Sex and the City movie- why not plan it on the 12th? Who knows- maybe you won't have to do it after all.
