Yesss!!! Something very odd happened to me! I passed gas, and it sounded EXACTLY like the 5-note alien "Close Encounters" connection theme!!!
I'm sorry, OP, I couldn't resist. Just having some fun. Here's my true and heartfelt message, and take it for what it's worth from someone who
has seen and experienced a lot in my 50 years:
I think if we seek to perceive causative connections between things, we will be successful. Much like seeing familiar patterns and pictures in the
clouds, if we look for patterns than resonate to us as consistent with our beliefs, we will find them. I suggest to you that a power surge or
whatever the cause was -- had it altered the readout of your digital clock a month ago, you might've shrugged and reset it.
I am 99% convinced that the LHC's experiments won't cause any effect beyond its own borders. There is, of course, that 1% of infinite possibility.
I suggest to you that if something adverse happens, it will be profound and, most importantly, it will be measurable in some manner. I think we
need to guard against attributing weather anomalies, and other phenomenon to otherwise disconnected and unrelated sources.
The most simple -- and thus elegant - solution to a question is often the answer. Not always, but often.
This isn't an effort to try to get you to disregard your ideas..... quite the opposite.... keep looking, try to take notes and measure things in
some manner, and if something DOES happen that has a more outreaching effect, perhaps your notes may provide a clue to it's mitigation.
Interesting thread, though, and I respect the sand you showed in coming forward with a story that you must've known would be picked apart.
