The Large Hadron Collider - most puissant particle-punisher ever assembled by the human race - has suffered another major power failure, knocking not only the atomsmasher itself but even its associated websites offline. The machine remains unserviceable at present. However its crucial cryogenics seem to have been unaffected, and no catastrophic damage is thought to have occurred.
"Maybe it was a birdy bread-bomber from the future," jokes Chris Stephens of the LHC Portal. "We ourselves find it hard not to suspect the involvement of some pan-dimensional police force, seeking to prevent humanity acquiring parallel-universe portal capability before we're ready to use it responsibly."

Even as a programmer I realize that you can't code a program one time through and expect everything to work perfect.

Wouldn't it be crazy if it didn't work until Dec. 2012? What a synchronicity THAT would be.
I mean for whatever anomalous thing they are trying to ultimately accomplish.

I keep telling you they are trying to find what is called the force. What consequence, that has for humanity who knows, and why should man know of it anyway.

This LHC, it's just not meant to happen. Yet, at least.
According to Nielsen... the creation of the boson at some point in the future would then ripple backwards through time to put a stop to whatever it was that had created it in the first place.
This, says Nielsen, could explain why the LHC has been hit by mishaps ranging from an explosion during construction to a second big bang that followed its start-up. Whether the recent arrest of a leading physicist for alleged links with Al-Qaeda also counts is uncertain.
