Black Holes: Don't Try This at Home, Kids

The latest on black holes here.

The money quote:

"The world's largest particle accelerator, the European Large Hadron Collider, is set to begin operations this year, and some think the extremely violent collisions it will generate can and will create tiny black holes."

Tiny black holes--that's like being a little dead. I may not be Einstein, but I really, really don't think this is a good idea.

If sometime around Labor Day you suddenly get sucked into a time-space singularity, you'll know who to blame.
