Still here?

Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the Universe yet?

Well, technically, the LHC was only circulating beams yesterday; there were no actual high-energy collisions, where unknows physics processes might happen. Those will start up in October.

I've seen a lot of "we're still here" comments on the blogs since yesterday. Well, duh. Even if something bad did happen (a micro black hole that didn't dissipate), it would take between five to fifty years before we would feel the first earthquake as a result. So, yah, of course we're still here.

Making Light has a number of "the world *was* destroyed, we're all duplicates" jokes, and an attempt at a "LEAVE CERN ALONE! THEY'VE HAD A TOUGH YEAR" parody rant.
