Hrrm. Is anyone else here somewhat disappointed that, upon activation yesterday, the Large Hadron Collider didn’t spawn a cluster of black holes, thereby compressing this miserable planet into gravel in moments? Go on, raise your hands

    Now honestly, would you really want to have you and Sidore squeezed into an area the size of a pin tip along with ALL OF HUMANITY?

    I don’t know about you, but I need a little more personal space than that. Hell, I don’t want anyone else snuggled that close up to my girls! 🙁

    True, we can all think of some people and things that are fully deserving of being chucked into a Black Hole, if one were available.

    When Steven Hawking was willing to bet hard cash that the experiment would yield nothing, I lost interest in the experiment.

    Don’t give up hope yet, they’re just testing it right now. Shooting the protons in one direction each way to see if the thing even works. In next month or 2 is when they start crashing them together. THAT’S when the fun begins…

    Jamie –
    Now, it’s funny that you mention that ‘person’, as I just had a dream last night that I was having an affair with her; or, at the very least, someone who looked exactly like her. It was, as you suspect, the strangest thing. She lived in a large mansion that kinda resembled Hogwarts restyled in lighter tones, and she wanted me to come to a party she was throwing, where she would apparently be announcing that she was dropping out of the vice-presidential candidacy. I suppose I persuaded her to see sense!

    I’d attempt to try the same thing with the real Sarah Palin, setting phasers to Woo, but a) everyone knows her brain is purely decorational and does not actually work, and b) Shi-chan would probably kill me. And with good reason.

    Mahtek –
    Yeah, this place is crowded enough as it is, without blackholes turning Humanity into gumbo. But then, I’d rather have that happen, than have a rift between universes open up, allowing malevolent alien races to enslave/subjugate/juice us all. Remember the Black Mesa Incident! Remember the Seven Hour War! And don’t forget your crowbar. 🙂

    Perhaps catapulting Sarah Palin into a blackhole would be fun! It sure couldn’t hurt!

    Hey — did you feel that?

    Sarah Palin and Hogwarts?
    Wow.
    My sex dreams don’t seem near as scary now.

  6. jamie writes:

    Okay, but did you guys have sex? And if you did, did you throw up afterwards? And if you didn’t, did you want to?

  7. Davecat writes:

    O, Jamie, Jamie. Asking if we had sex? You know a gentleman never tells. 😉

    I’d have to categorise Sarah Palin in the same class as perhaps Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchie: somewhat attractive, but with a bottomless pit where a personality should be, and a withered nerve ending where a brain should be. In fact, given some most of Palin’s statements, I’d argue that Ms Hilton is actually the more intelligent example, which is proof that we’re quickly hurtling towards the End of All Days.

    While we’re on the subject of MILFy politicos, I’d much rather be fantasising about former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko. Why the hell wasn’t I fantasising about Yulia Tymoshenko instead? Man, that was a dream wasted.

    Um, yes. Incredibly foxy. Shouldn’t there be like a Political Edition of HotorNot.com?
