Large Hadron Collider, Yo.

Just FYI: in two days, they will activate the Large Hadron Collider [wikipedia], which will "cause the collision of 'two counter rotating beams of protons or heavy ions,' thus creating a tiny black hole that will steadily grow, swallowing the entire earth and destroying life as we know it." So, get your affairs in order... right after you finish watching this rap about it. The video should assure you that the scientists working on the project aren't worried (and have a lot of time on their hands right before activating the world's largest machine).
