What could possibly go wrong? I tend to want to give the eggheads the benefit of the doubt, but it sounds a bit scary huh? The theory is that the mini black holes would vaporize so... no harm, no foul. It is sort of crazy thinking how utterly cave-man our greatest scientific experiments are. They can be summed up as HULK SMASH and then watching what happens. I guess it is necessary. Someone thought it was and spent a great deal of money on it. I sure am glad they discovered the higgs boson, makes my life a lot better. Well done LHC!
Before the upgrade they were saying the beam dump energy was equivalent to about 300 sticks of dynamite. If they doubled it, that would be 600 sticks of dynamite. That included ALL the protons.

So that is 600,000,000 mosquitoes in flight...tremendous amount of energy ?
All I know, is that if a black hole of sufficient micro mass escapes, the last word on earth will probably be "ooop.."

Interdimensional beings on THIS side built the collider to open a portal to their own dimension. It was built to allow their army to cross and invade. Oh yes, yes indeedy ! just watch and you'll see ! Better grab a stick, i certainly don't want to face them without a pointy stick or two, do you ?

If the do create a BLACK HOLE they need to do it over FUKUSHIMA... so it can suck up the 600,000 pounds of radioactive fuel that they cant seem to locate for the past 4 years.

The inconvenient truth may be that they don't care. If that is so, where are we, then, left?
Does anyone know and does anyone care?

Just what the hell are they playing at over in Switzerland? Attempting to create mini black holes? Attempting to open up parallel universes?
I am all for discovering new things and appreciate science is relatively still in its infancy, but what happens if this little experiment goes dramatically wrong, it could be the end of everything.
I'm sure in this day and age, risk assessments have been conducted, but what's to stop a little Black Hole growing into the Daddy of Black Holes?

I'm surprised Christians aren't jumping on this. The book of Revelation has a few scenes where various demons, angels, locust-thingies, and frog-thingies come out of rivers and cracks. The Euphrates is sort of near there.
I don't know... if I were into Christian mythology and prophecy, I'd sure be making some connections right about now.
