I Like Living
So I've been doing some calculations on the Large Hadron Collider and I'm pretty appalled at the guys who turned it on.
Apparently there's a million to one chance that a black hole will form and all life on earth will end.
So, really, there's basically no chance of the machine being harmful, right?
Let's do some math. Since there are 7 billion people on Earth, probability says that when the engineers turned on the LHC, they did it expecting to kill 700 people. (7 billion times 1/million)
I don't know about you guys, but if someone had told me that my science project would kill 700 people on average, then I might think twice before greedily accepting the funding for my death machine.
