okay, but could it least be a good day on repeat?

Stolen from sf_drama, but seriously, people, some of you read this and didn't tell us?

The New York Times would like us to know groundhog day could be nigh.
A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather.

First, a speculated bird breaks the instrument of our eventual doom, now, we could finally live out all those fanfic and really know how Bill Murray felt.

So, anyone see any blue police boxes hanging about? You know, in case we inadvertently tear a hole in space and time. I'll be frank here; if you cannot keep a bird from breaking your equipment--a bird for the love of God--I am not certain you should be playing with the fabric of reality willy-nilly, mmmkay? Just a thought.

No no, I'm pretty sure she's positively charged. I'm negative, though tending towards the neutral.

My Physics boyfriend, Brian Cox, said on Colbert that he doesn't believe that. And I'm totally going to agree with him. Because he's pretty. And probably smart.

I went to watch that just now so I could be comforted.

...wow he's hot. And he said some words too? But whatever. I believe them, whatever they were.

Yes, he pops up on the Discovery/Science channels a lot. And I'm always "Ssshhh! boything! There's important physics stuff I should be learning!"

I suspect that the physicists are laughing themselves silly at the success of their wild-ass rumor.

Birds happen. As do squirrels -- expect the squirrel of the apocalypse next.

*grins* Probably. Though I still say maybe bird proofing should have gone into the earlier drafts of the design.

Life follows TV! I KNEW IT!

I would have told you about it, but I thought my future self would be here to handle it by now, and why do today what you've already done tomorrow?

Shit. I guess I should figure out my equivalent of hitting golf balls through the stargate.

I was thinking of bowling.

...ok, that has just made my morning much more cheerful, thank you. I fucking love the world sometimes. Also, I'm discovering that science is cool in ways I don't think I ever realized would appeal to me so much (a set of rules, and boundary conditions, and whiz bang you've got models of stuff happening! SO COOL HOMG).

Though tell me, how exactly am I supposed to resist emailing The Boy about it? Not only is it hysterical and involving mathematics, that first article ends with a snipe about being a Sex fan. Which all of us Sox fans relate to, homg.

i'm a lurker, but for some reason, when i saw this, i knew i wanted your take. this is unrelated. but i think you'll get a kick out of it.
