Chris Morris (Brass eye, Nathan Barley etc etc), basically the funniest writer/comedian/whatever I can think of, visits the LHC for some elusive reason and writes an article in the Guardian, and records a podcast. For those (few) who are interested, the link is below: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2008/jun/30/cern.particle.physics2 "Then someone hits you with the seething vacuum. You think a vacuum is empty space. Quantum theory says yes - but it is also full of spontaneous eruptions of energy. This virtual energy comes from nowhere. It does and doesn't exist. You can use the bit that does, so long as you pay it back. This beats sub-prime." "At a meal afterwards, we babble. Will the collider suck us into a black hole? There's a website where some health and safety nut has calculated that Cern could be 18 times more lethal than death."
