Now with plumper hadrons!

so... which one is black mesa and which one is aperture science?

pute kisses like a man: so... which one is black mesa and which one is aperture science?


No, one's like Black Mesa, and the other's like the Anomalous materials lab

Cern is Black Mesa. Gordon Freeman is already employed there as well.

Wait... REALLY?!


the LHC is AT CERN....

i thought this too, but then i thought maybe there's some organizational separation or some other delineating classification, where some folks are CERN people while others are dedicated LHC people. like the CERN was all the politics/administration while the LHC was all the research.

/ who knows. not me. not going to research it either. having more fun thinking about half-life

"Hawking is honored for his discovery of Hawking radiation from black holes "and his deep contributions to quantum gravity and quantum aspects of the early universe,""

So, mainly for stuff he did 40 years ago and for being Stephen Hawking.

The next one will be for discovering the Hawking Hole

Couldn't they have found a less sassy angle at which to position his head?

LHC is an instrument at CERN

The discovery of Hawking Radiation is what allowed possible micro black hole formation from LHC to be a non-issue. Any black hole it created would instantly evaporate in a puff of Hawking Radiation. Without his discovery, the threat of black hole formation would have made the project a non-starter.

Thank God Hawking is American. In a socialist country like Britain the death panels would have put him in a burlap sack with a brick and thrown him in the river.

Not necessarily. If he were younger, he might have been an eater.

Not raw, not raw! We'd cook him. He'd be delicious with a few french fries, a bit of stuffing. Delicious!

I'm pretty sure he's got a gammy leg

Not in the Stein's Gate worldline.

He didn't discover it. Doglover did. I call them Sex-Rays.

I dont think its a good idea that french-looking people should be using tools. They should stick to their "ennui".

Cave Johnson here. I'd like to congratulate Dr. Hawking on his recent award, and once again extend an invitation to join our elite team at Aperture Science. We've recently found ourselves short-staffed in the genius physicist department, due to an unfortunate...incident...in one of our labs. So Dr. Hawking - or anyone else who might have some thoughts on how to close a stable Einstein-Rosen dimensional bridge from a distance of 1000 yards or greater - Aperture Science is hiring!

Not a problem. We can feed that part to the hounds, they won't mind.

If Stephen Hawking's so damn smart, why doesn't he put his brain in a robot body?

JesusJuice: If Stephen Hawking's so damn smart, why doesn't he put his brain in a robot body?


Because then he'd only be five feet tall.

However, he WOULD have the strength of five gorillas.

When he eats pot brownies Stephen likes to auto-tune his voice box.

Yeah the conception by him of Hawking Radiation is a really big fing deal. Dont do this contribution or the man down please.

I thought the headline was some kind of oddball troll attempt. Lulz.

How's it a big deal? I'd never even heard of Hawking radiation before, how do you know he didn't just make it up. The only radiation I care about is the kind my radiator puts out because it's starting to get a might chilly in the evenings even with my bear skin and brandy and such.

Portal 2 did what I didn't think possible, introduce a character I love more than GLaDOS. The more Cave Johnson in future games, the better.

MOONROCKS!

LEMONS!
