I like how they keep the controls simple.

Jamdug!: This looks like it is one of the most expensive projects in human history, which begs the question: who funded all this?

That is most definitely NOT the Death Star. There are handrails all over that thing.

I hear Higgs has the original.

I wonder if he has a Fark handle. If we knew, maybe we could get him to post it.


that would be wonderful, i'd sure like to smell what he's got cooking.

I figure we can extract at least ten to the twenty-first photons per cubic centimeter which will give one kilojoule per cubic centimeter at 600 nanometers, or, one megajoule per liter.


what about the mirror i made you?

/I kid because I don't understand much of anything they're doing at CERN, but the engineering alone is amazing to behold.

Well, now we know why it cost so much money to build. They used miles of Monster Cable™
