This video is supposed to be funny, made by some of the people working at the LHC.

Actually, despite the humor I learned quite a bit from it!!

I admit, I haven't spend much time actually wading through many of the doomsday threads about the CERN/LHC -- but I found this video (because it includes the lyrics on-screen) to be quite informative as well as catchy and funny...

I hope you guys like this as much as I did!

haha- my husband was telling me that he heard this on Coast to Coast last night. I actually learned something, lol. Great job

I learned my multiplication tables via rap songs when I was in 4th grade...(im 25 now) ... on cassette tape "Multiplication Rap" ... way easier for me...

"Why the Large Hadron Collider Must Be Stopped"


Before they began their descent into scientific instability, these people actually made a rap video.

In this rap they declare that this madness of theirs will "rock you in the .." They rumble on about anti-matter being "matter's evil twin."

Someone very kindly tried to explain the CERN project to me in another thread. It only made me more confused and I actually had to reboot my brain once it seized up. But I actually get it now.

This is a thread about the VIDEO.

Now, if you have comments about the VIDEO, let's hear them.

Otherwise, there are about 50 other threads about how CERN/LHC is the end of the world to post your pictures and pose your questions in.

My Rap of CERN and the end of the world.

You ignite a stick of dynomite, the molecules expand...
you get a flash of light, and you also get a bang...
If you cause a chain reaction in the atom jost beyond...
you'll get a flash of light, and you'll have an atom bomb...
Now you put it in the CERN and you spin it all around...
opposing beams of protons, going round and round...
opposing force of protons crash and then be one...
you get a flash of light much brighter than the sun...
and when the test is over the Earth will then implode...
into an inner darkness known only as black hole...


Note: The smaller the size, the more power unleashed.

Molecules - dynomite
Atoms - thermo-nuclear bomb
Protons - thermo quantum bomb (mini big bang)

*sigh*

Whille I appreciate your rap, and ability to write such a clever one...


This thread is NOT a doomsday thread. This thread is NOT ABOUT CERN/LHC ENDING THE WORLD.

There are PLENTY of other threads for that. Leave this one alone!!!!


I wanted feedback on the video itself, that is ALL. Discussion about the original VIDEO I posted. Was it funny? Did you learn anything? Are there any details left out?

Fine by me as I posted it already and made my statement on this horror machine. Carry.. and have fun...

...did you read the post? The video is about a rap SONG. Some songs have lyrics.

I apologize right now for coming off so fiery...

I understand the nature of this board, and should have expected people that don't like/fear the LHC to be posting here.

I am in the middle personally...I haven't been convinced it's "bad" or "good".

I just found this video very entertaining and somewhat educational at the same time. I wished to share.

I really am sorry for my abrasive nature in my past two comments.


EDIT:
I did star your own rap post -- because as a poet myself I appreciate the ability of one to manipulate words for them. I liked your rap -- don't get me wrong...I just don't want this thread to be de-railed into another "OMG the world is going to end" one...

Can we discuss the insane nature of the dancers perhaps? LOL?

...apology accepted. I'll continue with my train of thought for thread -- the lyrics of the song:


The Large Hadron Rap

Twenty-seven kilometers of tunnel under ground
Designed with mind to send protons around
A circle that crosses through Switzerland and France
Sixty nations contribute to scientific advance
Two beams of protons swing round, through the ring they ride
‘Til in the hearts of the detectors, they’re made to collide
And all that energy packed in such a tiny bit of room
Becomes mass, particles created from the vacuum
And then…

LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
And the things that it discovers will rock you in the ..

We see asteroids and planets, stars galore
We know a black hole resides at each galaxy’s core
But even all that matter cannot explain
What holds all these stars together – something else remains
This dark matter interacts only through gravity
And how do you catch a particle there’s no way to see
Take it back to the conservation of energy
And the particles appear, clear as can be

You see particles flying, in jets they spray
But you notice there ain’t nothin’, goin’ the other way
You say, “My law has just been violated – it don’t make sense!
There’s gotta be another particle to make this balance.”
And it might be dark matter, and for first
Time we catch a glimpse of what must fill most of the known ‘Verse.
Because…

LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.

Antimatter is sort of like matter’s evil twin
Because except for charge and handedness of spin
They’re the same for a particle and its anti-self
But you can’t store an antiparticle on any shelf
Cuz when it meets its normal twin, they both annihilate
Matter turns to energy and then it dissipates

When matter is created from energy
Which is exactly what they’ll do in the LHC
You get matter and antimatter in equal parts
And they try to take that back to when the universe starts
The Big Bang – back when the matter all exploded
But the amount of antimatter was somehow eroded
Because when we look around we see that matter abounds
But antimatter’s nowhere to be found.
That’s why…

LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
And the things that it discovers will rock you in the ..

The Higgs Boson – that’s the one that everybody talks about.
And it’s the one sure thing that this machine will sort out
If the Higgs exists, they ought to see it right away
And if it doesn’t, then the scientists will finally say
“There is no Higgs! We need new physics to account for why
Things have mass. Something in our Standard Model went awry.”

But the Higgs – I still haven’t said just what it does
They suppose that particles have mass because
There is this Higgs field that extends through all space
And some particles slow down while other particles race
Straight through like the photon – it has no mass
But something heavy like the top quark, it’s draggin’ its ***
And the Higgs is a boson that carries a force
And makes particles take orders from the field that is its source.
They’ll detect it….

LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.

Now some of you may think that gravity is strong
Cuz when you fall off your bicycle it don’t take long
Until you hit the earth, and you say, “Dang, that hurt!”
But if you think that force is powerful, you’re wrong.
You see, gravity – it’s weaker than Weak
And the reason why is something many scientists seek
They think about dimensions – we just live in three
But maybe there are some others that are too small to see
It’s into these dimensions that gravity extends
Which makes it seem weaker, here on our end.
And these dimensions are “rolled up” – curled so tight
That they don’t affect you in your day to day life
But if you were as tiny as a graviton
You could enter these dimensions and go wandering on
And they'd find you...

When LHCb sees where the antimatter’s gone
ALICE looks at collisions of lead ions
CMS and ATLAS are two of a kind
They’re looking for whatever new particles they can find.
The LHC accelerates the protons and the lead
And the things that it discovers will rock you in the ..

They make a lot of sense for a bunch of stoned scientists. This video must have annoyed the "end of the world freaks" right to the core. I can see more people studying because of this effort. It was completely unexpected. Nice work!
