Large Hadron Collider? I just met her.

Robot joke from Futurama. No, I don't get it either.

Unfortunately for those of us hoping that the destruction of the Universe, when the LHC is/was(?) turned on today, would mean that we wouldn't have to clean the oven, we are out of luck. Despite the doomsayers claiming that we are all going to be sucked into a man-made black hole, and wouldn't that be ironic, apparently larger collisions occur in space all the time. Bugger. So looks like I'll have to keep putting off cleaning the oven. Unless of course they find that the mysterious God-particle really gets the grime off. That would be good.

For the ubernerds, here is a link to the LHC site.

Edit: now you can check on the status of the Universe.
