The sky is falling ….
As Asterix fans will remember, thats what the indomitable Gauls used to say when they sensed impending catastrophe! For some, the large hadron collider with its mini-black-hole-creating-forces is going to be the end of the world. One second a bunch of scientists gawking at their monitors, running their mathematical models through supercomputers, the next – nothing, nada, kaput. No more earth, no more planet to save, no more wars to fight, no more nothing!
So, as Amit Varma asks on India Uncut :
“1] If the world was to end, would you prefer that it end suddenly without your being aware of it, or that you had some time to contemplate your end, and maybe do some things still left undone?
2] If your answer is that you’d like some time, how much time would you like?
Okay, now here’s the deal: you’ve got that time. It starts now”
Kinda reminds me of a resolution I made a few posts ago 🙂
