Main Question or Discussion Point

I was checking the news this morning when I happened upon this shocking story:

In a surprise move, the Large Hadron Collider was shut down indefinitely Thursday morning, over fears raised about possible miniature white holes. Previous concerns in the general public about miniature black holes were dismissed by the scientific community, but now a renowned scientist has raised alarm bells over the formation of miniature white holes, the theoretical opposite to the more familiar black hole.

@everyone College humor did an In-n-out joke saying that they were coming to new york, and I think the NYT did an article on it being for real.
