erm .. the fact that their commenting on it as CERN workers..!
Many physicists say that Nielsen and Ninomiya's theory, while intellectually interesting, cannot be accurate because the event that the LHC is trying to recreate already happens in nature. Particle collisions of an energy equivalent to those planned in the LHC occur when high-energy cosmic rays collide with the earth's atmosphere. What's more, some scientists believe that the Tevatron accelerator at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (or Fermilab) near Chicago has already created Higgs bosons without incident; the Fermilab scientists are now refining data from their collisions to prove the Higgs' existence.
Nielsen concedes, "We have very little data, so theorists are going their own ways and making a lot of theories that may not be very plausible. We need guidance from experimentalists to make the theories more healthy."

What do you all think about it?
Whatever the LHC will do, Nature has already done many times over during the lifetime of the Earth and other astronomical bodies.
The Universe as a whole conducts more than 10 million million LHC-like experiments per second. The possibility of any dangerous consequences contradicts what astronomers see - stars and galaxies still exist.

Time Traveling birds? hahahaha
i thought i'd heard it all, why not send a person?
And to say a bird today is smarter than a bird 1000 yrs ago is also non sense. Until a bird, or any animal, can sit down and talk to me and balance my checkbook. It is still a animal with animal intelligence. Meaning, it is dumb as crap, compared to any human. So a bird can move snow with a stick to get to worms, thats called survival instincts. Nothing else. i just want a human to time travel back, maybe from a week or two ahead in time, give me the winning lottery numbers and then go home. i'm good with that.
