I remember one headline (which you could probably google) that mis-spelled hadron collider. As you can probably guess it was talking about shutting it on a few years back. hint: it's a bit naughty :lol:
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!
