The Large Hadron Collider is almost ready, and everyone’s pretty much sure that it won’t create a black hole that will consume the earth.


straight to hell, boy

Vladimir’s Putin’s name sounds a lot like the French word for whore.

That’s weird, though, because in the Criterion Collection edition of Le Mepris, Brigitte Bardot says ‘putain…putain’ (to spite her husband who’s criticized her foul mouth, and it is beautiful, just insanely beautiful to watch her sadly pronounce obscenities in the bathroom), and it’s subtitled as ‘cunt.’ So is Putin a whore or a cunt?

I guess ask the Georgians.

watch out for the militant black socialist revolution, which apparently is what Obama means by ‘change’

Jon Voight, ladies and gentlemen, explaining his mental illness. You may remember him as IMF traitor Jim Phelps, or the guy who didn’t get raped in Deliverance. Also, inexplicably, he once portrayed the Pope.

I don’t know why, but this thing just scares me to death. It may be because it looks like a giant spider-dog, not because it’s a giant robot. I don’t know.

Here’s a nice article about modern-day robots.

the end of the world news

I’ve always been slightly convinced that the great disaster on the horizon won’t necessarily be an act of aggression: it could just be a big mistake. And apparently I’m not the only one, because a couple of guys are trying to keep the Large Hadron Collider from replicating the Big Bang because they think it might create a black hole that will swallow the Earth. I’m all about science — I love the monkey brain robot — but I’m almost feeling a little Mennonite-ish about recreating the Big Bang in Geneva. Shouldn’t we be doing that on the moon or something?
