Risk is the tool with what we shape our world and our lives. You cannot run away from it. If you wanted to do it, you wouldn't go outside, you wouldn't even drink water and eat food. Every tiny movement you made on earth or universe can create an impulse that would be risky for another's live. Can you change it? No. Then, just let it go. It's not a helpful attitude to life and to science if you like.

Btw, no one is that stupid to destruct the world. This experiement could or would create black holes but not as the same as those created by supernova in the universe. They will be small balck holes which the experiment crew also planned to see. Relax mate :thumbsup:

I'm not unrelaxed. I should have put some grinning emoticons in, because I was grinning when I wrote it. I just never got into science, and think that this kind of scientific holy-grail stuff is hyped to the skies. It's interesting, but top story around the world? Maybe so, but I'm bored already. :wave:
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.
