Re: Armageddon. Whaddayathunk?
I notice that no-one has mentioned the Large Hadron Collider, being repaired by CERN. While the odds are against it producing a mini-black hole able to swallow the Earth, or a strangelet, or something even weirder and more destructive, there is still a small but finite chance that some such may occur.
The CERN group calculated the odds at one in 2 million against. However, the result you get in such estimates depends on the assumptions you build into your models, and no-one could argue that CERN staff are unbiased! They just want to play with their very expensive giant toy.
So guys, you may have just months to live before a human created black hole or other weird object swallows us all.
