The much-delayed launch of the Large Hadron Collider has been hit with problems again after a bird dropped a baguette into the system causing it to overheat.

It's an echo of the future space time continuum upsetting the earth's magnetic poles and disorienting the bird.
The official reason the LHC malfunctioned during tests earlier this week was that it was caused by "a bit of baguette on the busbars" – apparently dropped by a hungry bird.
A busbar (sometimes pronounced "buzzbars") in electrical power distribution refers to thick strips of copper or aluminium that conduct electricity within a switchboard, distribution board, substation, or other electrical apparatus.

mini black holes don't last long, sure but can a black hole eat another black hole and grow?
do mini black holes emit hawking radiation?
