Black hole???

In keeping with my promise of light hearted threads..

I was watching the news this AM, and a "scientist" that was being interviewed, said that now that they have started the new "supercollider" in Europe, when the atoms begin smashing together, its going to create a "black hole", and the earth will collapse into itself....yikes!!!!

I went out to my backyard, and sure enough, it appears that the sinkhole by my garden is getting deeper, and my tomato plants look a little shorter than they did yesterday!!!

Anybody else notice their yards shrinking? I for one am going to keep an eye on this thing......

I know the beach erosion of our western coast of florida is probably just winding up on our eastern coast. So everybody, just take 3 steps to your left, and everything will be the same in the end.

Well, I think the supercollider will create this new little albeit VERY tiny universe which in turn makes us a sinkhole in a much bigger place - we're the pit in someone else's world.

I think you've watched Donald Sutherland in Animal House too many times...
