In Other News...



Ok so this is not related to chess in any way, but it's seriously cool... The Large Hadron Collider is close to beginning its particle beam tests. Check out the pics at that link, this stuff is just mind-blowing. Amazing to think that human minds can design and build something like that.

I am sure that thing beats Rybka hands down.

"Don't worry, they have confirmed that the chance that a sustainable black hole will form and consume the earth is quite small."

Dude...what exactly is this thing supposed to do?

Have you ever seen the movie, "The Mist"?

banatt: I bet you it plays a mean Queen's Gambit.

rt solo: it looks like something out of "Stargate", so a black hole would go nicely with it.

blunderprone: sweet! looking forward to your live coverage of Hastings.

likesforests: ahh, quality entertainment... hmm black hole or The Mist, not sure which option I prefer.
