30 minutes and no black hole yet? I feel cheated.

It's been really exciting, though the webcast was crappy

All kidding aside, this is fantastic! This is even on the front page of CNN... particle physics as popular culture. We live in a strange and wonderful age, even if it can be a pain in the ***. Go LHC!

EDIT: Heh, they're having a bit of a drink in the CMS control room. I see a lot of smiles, so I'd say life is good in Geneva!

Honestly, those guys and gals at the LHC are drinking in almost every photo I see of them!

I had 50 new text messages from CMS, CERN, ATLAS, ALICE, LHCb, LHCf, and USLHC all talking about the new energies. I need to unsubscribe from a couple of those!

It might ruin the aesthetic, but I can't help but think that site could turn a profit with some advertising all around the "NO", if you published the link in the right places. Tell people to check often!

Tin foil hats?

Actually site has quite a lot of traffic (see alexa.com) - I am surprised.

Oh yes, we could do a BRISK business in tin foil! Hell, trust us, it's PF BRAND foil! For the lazy paranoid we could have pre-made caps, or for the deluded soul who still wants to be fashionable, tinfoil lining tastefully tucked away in a 10-gallaon cowboy hat.

As for the traffic... I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I spend too much time with people to even hope anymore.

Long, but very good legal brief by UT law professor up on arxiv:

[THE BLACK HOLE CASE: THE INJUNCTION AGAINST THE END OF THE WORLD
http://arxiv.org/pdf/0912.5480

There have been some reputable scientists along the way claiming the case against LHC black holes was not full proof; their story and the story of the LHC responders is discussed, followed by in interesting discussion of how the legal system might approach the argument and assess risk.

I have good friend who is an electrical engineer-turned-lawyer (ghastly, I know, lovely guy though) who is going to eat this up with a spoon. Hell, I'm liking it myself. Thanks mheslep!
