Our planet is not at risk from the world's most powerful particle physics experiment, a report has concluded.
The document addresses fears that the Large Hadron Collider is so energetic, it could have unforeseen consequences.

Critics are worried that mini-black holes made at the soon-to-open facility on the French-Swiss border might threaten the Earth's very existence.

Whoa!

A Black Hole that would swallow up the earth!

I guess that would mean that Global Darkening

would trump Global Warming!

According to the Oz books, the braided man made them. The braided man also made flutters for flags, post-holes (which he stored end to end), rustles for dresses, and I believe doughnut holes (not the round balls of the same name).

Mini-black holes - the cause of my missing marbles? Yup. Orange Blossom lost her marbles.

I've heard a lot of doomsaying nutcases in my time, and they've all had one thing in common. They've all been wrong. (Including the "global warming" nutcases.)

Didn't you get the memo?

Maybe this memo will help:
