Actually it's not but that got your attention right?

CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is to be fired up this morning.... some time.... All they will be doing is sending tiny protons round in a circle to make sure it works. We're not even at the 'sending 2 beams in opposite directions so they will smash into each other' stage yet.

Some people are freaked out by the thought of this unknown 'will it create a giant black hole that will swallow the Earth'. It's not going to create a giant black hole. Besides if it grew instantly and swallowed the Earth would we actually notice? Well no, not even twitter works that fast.

And if the world does end this morning... I'll be stuck in a lecture..... What a rubbish way to go!

I am postponing all essay writing until I'm sure it's not gonna end. I may have already wasted 3 hours of my last days...

Well it has been running since 9:25am so I'm guessing we aren't gonna die today. Maybe tomorrow!

Stop putting off the essay! It isn't going to write itself!
