Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the Earth yet? Apparently, they're not actually smashing atoms until 10/21. So keep checking back!



In other news... The Greatest American Hero: The Movie ??? Oh, man. Will it still be a massive source of hippy propaganda and government-mocking? Pleeeaaasseeee?

Comments

I hope they keep that great cheezy theme song!

"Who could it be-ee?
Believe it or not it's just me!"
Loved that theme music. Mike Post: ever-reliable.
I owned the Joey Scarbury album that was on ... I was in 5th grade and I worshipped both the song and the show, even if I thought Scarbury was a big dork.

I, too, am lobbying for the film to keep the song. *g*
Re: the Large Hadron Collider - will they just get it over with already? The suspense is killing me.

(Good thing someone put that site up. I was wondering.)
Re: the LHC - Is there an RSS for that, so I can get updates like I do from Http://isittuesday.com?

Re: the GAH - I met that guy last year at Dragon Con. He got no love. It was embarassing.
Check the source on the page;

the first person to ask for an RSS feed gets a free black hole in their junk 

ok FINE here
I think that feed is important to have. I mean, the collider could destroy the world but with the whole time zones thing it would be hours before we knew! I'd rather wake up to a feed on my LJ Friends page that'll tell me if I'm dead, so I know whether or not to go to work.

I cannot stop reading "Hadron" as "Hardon."

This is making my life both surreal and pornographic.

o.O

Then the whole destroying bit takes on a whole new definition.

(I somehow can't believe I actually typed that...no actually I can. *hits post*

Humorists have been having a field day with that one, unsurprisingly.
*bows*

"Ah but don't go home with your Hadron
It will only drive you insane
You can't shake it (or break it) with your Motown
You can't melt it down in the rain."
Have you read Concerned: the Half-Life and Death of Gordon Frohman? I’ve never even played Half-Life 2 and I got a lot of laughs out of it.
I share your excitement (and no small amount of squee) about a GMH movie.

My husband interviewed William Katt on comiXology.com just last month and Katt talked about his comic book company as well as GMH (which is going to be a comic book soon.
Greatest Mexican Hero?

Ai Caramba!
Greatest American Hero!!??!

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee(breath) eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

laughing in happiness...

thank you so much for spreading the good news!! (what a great, though brief, article!)
If it does start cranking out very small, short-lived black holes, we might have a chance at using them for non-fossil energy. Problem would be feeding them matter fast enough to keep them from evaporating in a burst of Hawking radiation...
Take a peek at the page source for http://www.hasthelhcdestroyedtheearth.com:

<!-- oh shit bears -->

They knew you were coming!
bears are universal.
I have a huge soft sppot for that show, ever since my mother (a special eduction teacher) watched the first show, saw the hero lose his instruction manual, and declared "It's the world's first dyslexic superhero!"

Oh, beware the other head of science, Arthur! IT BITES!

The only thing I can think about this HONKING BIG MACHINE is "Didn't they already do something like this before, only not so big? Does it have to be this big?" I mean, those first experiments with superconducting were teeny but still cool (look, little floating cubes!)...

And of course, no one bothers to point out that the earth is bombarded with cosmic rays and neutrinos and whatnot EVERY DAMN DAY... and no one notices...
They've not turned on the machine yet -- not for another 15 minutes! :)

Thanks for the update! :)
