We have a Long Bet that states “Large Hadron Collider will destroy Earth.” And you can watch the video above of what that looks like.
The “First Beam” will occur at 9:30am at CERN, which I believe will be about 1:30am here in San Francisco as we clean up after the Anathem Event. We will be sure to open a bottle of champagne and have a toast. The world has been a lot of fun so far, shame it has to end :)
