Inspired by this insane buzz in my head (which, in turn, was inspired by “the lawsuit a Russian astrologer is bringing against NASA over it’s mission to comet Tempel-1”:http://www.newsday.com/news/health/ny-hs4321766jun27,0,6528169.story?coll=ny-health-headlines),
I think it’s time we take this whole issue of “probing the universe with bombs” more seriously.
I’ve previously reported on the horrors of the cheap and easy-to-obtain chemical menace dihydrogen-monoxide. In the spirit of that important stand, I believe it’s important to recognize the harm particle physics laboraties all over the world are doing to our universe’s fundamental particles. What mystical forces might they be imbalancing? What twist of fate might the human race have to endure due to the careless annihilation of billions and billions and billions of electrons and quarks??? I “know the times”:http://www.cooleysekula.net/home/nus/, and I think it’s time you all knew the times, too.
These fundamental particles, especially the lightest ones, think at the start of their busy day that their identity is safe. But then we go and accelerate them to massive velocities, smash them into their antiparticle partners, and BLAMMO! Pure energy. Whatever comes out, it’s no guarantee to be what you put in (sure, the whole thing conserves energy, but that doesn’t guarantee you get out the same particles!). In fact, many times you get out whole new particles whose energy then tranforms into other exotic particles. In the end, you may end up with what you started, or you might get photons or neutrinos! Imagine, waking up an electron and ending as a spray of neutrinos and photons!
Oh, I hope you’re not taking this seriously. If so you need help.
