Worldwide threat about a week away

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider

Read this ... apparently, once it gets activated, chances are black holes will appear and in about 4 years, they'll get big enough to swallow the earth ... also, the European Court of Human Rights said that they can't cancel the launching of this project due to the fact that it's pure speculation AND black holes always existed in nature. not causing harm well that's a relief ...

Imagine the look on the face of the dude who moves the switch to operate the machine, right after it explodes and little black holes are forming all around the facility

Sounds strangely familiar...

Black holes under a certain size evaporate within miliseconds.
They have to pass quite a large threshold before their gravity is powerfull enough to start pulling mater towards it to keep it going.
Black holes a few atoms big are nothing to worry about....atoms have mind blowingly small gravitational fields. (which is nice for us, because if they didnt we would be long pancakes by now).

Not that there isnt any threat mind.
At these energy levels, theres simply stuff we have no expirence off before.
So theres always the chance something unknowing could happen.
But it wont be a black hole.

If there would be a black hole, the time would be bent anyway, and the four years would feel like ages for you.

out of all outcomes that crossed through my mind in the past, I think humanity getting extinct due to such an experiment is a little bit of an off scenario ... I always imagined like some big cosmic thing happening u know ... like our Sun turning into a Supernova or something ... not some human-made gadgets turning back upon us

EDIT: Kobold, since they said 4 years, I think it's 4 years in terms of human perception ... so in fact it's a few seconds which seem like 4 years

A year is still defined as the time the earth takes to round the sun once. And not 31536000 seconds.

Oh shit! Duck and cover!

I know I'm going to have sex as much as I can in preparation for this.

Hmm...I guess nothing is changing for me. :P

one thing though: if this shit happens, I hope nobody survives ... this may be the cure for this planet in the end ... and I hate the thought that almost every human being will die, except some wackos one some stranded island going: "hey, dude ... that was totally radical man !!!"

Quetch, when there would be a black hole, then there wouldn't be any Earth afterwards.

no I didn't mean Black Holes anymore I meant some ... disaster

Oh and come to think of it ... it's cool to see yourself going through the event horizon ... I mean if time and space curve, making it seem like eons to you, how would you ... die ??? I mean would u slowly see how you're decomposing (being conscious) or would u just black out in an instant ?

Kinda weird, thinking that a week from now a massive global catastrophe could be coming. A Black Mesa scenario doesn't seem all that unlikely nowadays.

You'd die of spagettification, which is a lot more fun to say then expirence.

That said, you would survive well pased the event horizon (assuming oxygen etc was sucked with you). In fact, you wouldnt even notice the "point of no return".

Well making a LHC and stuff is what humans do. If it will end us all perhaps its just evolution of time, space and what more, and we had our tiny role. ^_^
Dunno think all that talk of black holes by these scientist is just cause its popular speech. Hypotetical blah blah that finds some kinda resonance with the general public. In the end they don't have a cleu either thats why they do crazy cool stuff like making a LHC. ^_^

Threat...? Not this thing again... a report was made... twice! And even court rulled that the science behind it is sound and there is nothing to worry about. Geez.

Then again, that's also what they said before the Black Mesa incident.

..
I wanna be spagettificated, it'd be awesome. Imagine if one fraction of a millisecond be like million years for us? We might evolve so much in that time that we'll find a way to escape the "point of no return" - and until then we'll be safe and sound from meteors and whatnot.

spagettified means your whole body gets ripped apart and stretched in different directions due to gravitational turbalance. It is NOT awesome
Its an awesome word, but probably one of the worst deaths I could imagine. Especialy if it happened slowly.
It would be like having every cell in your body on its own torture rack.

Not maybe, just maybe, we accidently make a "perfect" black hole that somehow has no turbalance.
However, I'm pretty sure the science currently puts the time distortion the other way around...we would expirence normal time in terms of getting sucked in, but from an outside perspective it would look like we were getting sucked in over millions of years.
To us, the rest of the universe would look like it was being speed up, not slowed down.

So our only hope would be that some other cilivilisation rescues us and pulls us out.

As evidence to back this up, I point to such reliable sources such as Stargate SG1:216 "A Mater of Time" and the first eppisode of Hercules in Space (err..Andromedia)

You cant argue with those sources
