(Xen Invaders)   It's a good thing CERN's large hadron collider was shut down until next year... It gave Reddit and Fark's gift of a crowbar and plans to save the world time to arrive. Bonus - real life Gordon Freeman received the gifts   ( blog.reddit.com) divider line

It's always awesome to see scientists admit that they have a sense of humor. George Gamow would be proud.

I did tell a Cub Scout that I couldn't buy his popcorn because I didn't agree with the Scouts views on religion and homosexuality.

The kid looked at the adult at the table and said "What's homosexuality dad?"

1.) This is awesome.

2.) I will someday marry alpinekat.

3.) Don't tell my wife.

It does if you work at the LHC.

Not until he gets back from the Borealis no.

The LHC won't be fully operational until next year, and so an amusing gift of a crowbar, a headcrab hat, and Half-Life guidebook had adequate time to arrive in order to save us from the obvious resonance cascade, thus rending a dimensional rift to Xen. Bonus - Pictures of vague Half-Life protagonist lookalike.
 
2008-11-20 08:54:42 PM  
Too much awesome to handle.
 
2008-11-20 08:59:22 PM  
OMFG WIN!!1!

/BTW, good luck with the LHC, you CERN folks.
//Can't wait to see that thing up and running!

"Wow! Finally, after eight months of downtime and $20,000,000 in repairs to the superconducting magnets, we're ready to resume our experiments. It'll be great to get back to work."

"You said it, Gordo." (Facility chief gestures toward button) "Be my guest."

(Gordon pushes the button)

CLANG Zzzzzzzzzzzzt ...

"OK, who the fark left a crowbar in the tunnel?"

This is possibly the best thing I have even seen on Fark.
 
2008-11-20 09:09:52 PM  
I can smell the win. The rest of the internet is going to smell like win for a few days, sort of the way you smell like a dead hooker for a few days after you put her body in the trunk and drive to that one spot on the bluff over the lake by the dam, where your stepdad used to take you fishing and then you'd play the grownup boy's game.

/what?
 
2008-11-20 09:10:21 PM  
This was FULL OF WIN

2008-11-20 09:29:15 PM  
OMG, I don't even play Half-Life, and I still think this is the winningest win that has ever existed. Be still, my geeky little heart.
