Will Forest Gump destroy the world?

Probably not but its been reported that Tom Hanks has been chosen to switch on the Large Hadron Collider in June later this year after scientists picked up the £20 million repair bill.

(If it creates a black hole then Forest should run).


Tom Hanks, the actor and star of Forrest Gump, will turn on the Large Hadron Collider, designed to recreate the 'Big Bang', when it is finally repaired.
Steve Myers, Cern's director of accelerators and technology, told Nature News that he gave the actor a tour of the laboratory on February 13 and asked him if he would return for the switch-on, to which the actor agreed.

Cern's head of communications, James Gillies, confirmed that the facility would be delighted to have Hanks there to restart the collider, which organisers hope will take place in June.

The machine is designed to simulate the "Big Bang", which started the universe 15 billion years ago, by smashing subatomic particles together at energies never before achieved.

Momma always told me life is like a Large Hadron Collider. You never know what your gonna get!

Hope his last words aren't "Houston we have a problem"

This has to be the most random thing I've ever heard. I mean, where's the connection? How many degrees of separation between Forest Gump and the LHC?

Getting Snoop to turn it on would be a closer match. LHC. LBC. Ah, forget it.

lol, this reminds me of the Simpsons movie...

Hello, I'm Tom Hanks. The U.S. government has lost its credibility, so it's borrowing some of mine.

I think the connection is more between the LHC and The Da Vinci code. I could be mistaken, but pretty much both have a similar message.

It mentions in the article that his upcoming flick 'Angels and Demons' has CERN in the storyline so I suspect those pesky PR consultants have been at it again.

How about Leslie Nielsen doing it instead?

I would like to venture a guess....

The movie "Angel's and Demon's" is coming out soon

Tom Hanks once again plays lead in this adaptation of Dan Brown's novel

And for those unfamiliar with this one, CERN and the production of anti-matter are central to the story

Cheer!

Tom Hanks plays Robert Langdon in the upcoming DaVinci Code prequel Angels & Demons. The plot revolves around an antimatter bomb hidden in the Vatican. In the story, the antimatter is stolen from CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider, by the Illuminati.

Has anybody read "Blasphemy" by Douglas Preston? This whole Tom Hanks connection reminds me of the book, not because there is a Tom Hanks character more the connection with The Da Vinci Code's message.

A sequel to 'Big' - Big Bang

Quote from Joe vs the Volcano: 'We'll jump and see what happens'

Sleepless in the LHC

Bachelor Party 2: The Black Hole

When Harry met Sally in an alternate diminsion

Cast Away...for real

The Bonfire of Uncertaintity

I could go on and on....this is truly and oddity. Don't forget he's got the prequel to the DiVinci Code coming out this year Angles & Demons.

Tom Hanks the destroyer of worlds


I never did like the guy but I'm more concerned with CERN treating the LHC like some christmas tree lights, obviously they won't do any collisions right off the bat but still it's the same as last time they want to announce the success before they have collided anything.

You can bet as soon as Hanks flips the switch the news will be full of it being a big success and none of the spotlight will be on the fact they haven't collided again.

Why does he get the priveldige of a personal escort from herr direktor? I hate how due to fame actors get these things offered. How about someone famous AND in the field - say Professor S. Hawking?

Going round and round gets the haldron nowhere.

You need high voltage for a collision which I hope happens
along the way.

Whenever I hear of particle accelerators I think of the Tesla
statement that he made a 1/2 of a millionth centimeter beam
that could go to the planets if it were possible to aim the beam.

Tesla most assuredly didn't lie and had contracts and funding
for his equipment and no one has been held accountable
except perhaps the owners must have picked up their equipment.

This brings a whole new meaning to "Stupid is as stupid does", made famous by Forest Gump.

Yhea that's the connection I made when I read this.

Angels and Demons was a good book and should translate to film well, I never could bring my self to watch or read the Da'Vinchi code (sp). CERN has a lot to do with the plot, wont spoil it for readers.

That is exactly what went through my head when I saw this. Cartoon Hanks smiling away...
