Lemur Love

And we thought it was hard to find the perfect partner...

Imagine if you couldn't even tell if you were eyeing up the right species by looking at them. This it the problem rainforest lemurs have - their love lives are a whole other level of difficult.

Secret LHC Blueprint

I can't reveal my sources, but I am assured that this is the actual blueprint used as the basis of the LHC. It would seem to support the claims made in the video below.

Thirty-three is indeed a significant and mysterious number. Jesus was thirty-three when he was crucified; the first temple of Solomon stood for thirty-three years before being pillaged. Every single scientist/satanist involved with the LHC is, has been, or will eventually be thirty-three. The seemingly innocent 'Clickety Click' of the bingo caller, if halved, gives us thirty-three and, alarmingly, echoes the sound of an electrical switch being operated - perhaps the 'on' switch of LHC itself? There are thirty-three symbols of the Masonic Order, one of which shows a double-headed eagle crowned with an equilateral triangle, inside of which is the number thirty-three. Prior to merging, one of the original particle detector experiments was known as EAGLE. There are currently six detector experiments in place. The country code for the CERN press office is four and one; four minus one leaves 3. Add the country code and first two digits of the number, two and two, and we get nine - three times three!

There's more, but I must run, I have a Lodge meeting at three...

The LHC has been designed to bring back Satan to earth.

A man delivers a hilariously fact-free analysis of the LHC, the Large Hardo Hadron Collider.



Included is his denial of the moon landings, a complete misunderstanding of the term "strange matter (Satan would be pretty strange, seems to be his entire argument), the assertion that it is impossible to change direction in space, and an insinuation that all scientists involved are Freemasons. Masterful, truly masterful.

Now, once you've finished listening to it, go back and listen to the Chris Morris interview (2 posts down), so as to rinse your brain out.

Vatican: "Aliens could exist".

I love the Vatican. When they aren't putting out lists of new deadly sins (many of which seem to be thinly disguesed attacks on science in general) they are making themselves look a bit silly in stories like this.

What amuses me the most about the article is not the sentiment about aliens life forms being possible, and not contradictory to the bible, which is near-enough sensible. Except when your reasoning is that (and I found this quote in another comment on the original article)...

"Ruling out the existence of aliens would be like "putting limits" on God's creative freedom, he said."


No, it's not that that amuses me most, it's the original article title from the Vatican Magazine, the immensely improbable "Aliens are my Brother". Because...

"Just as we consider earthly creatures as 'a brother,' and 'sister,' why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial brother'? It would still be part of creation."


It would be the most majestic silliness, if only it wasn't dead-serious. I'm also looking forward to the Vatican's "Darwin Conference" next year, that should be even more entertaining...

The CERN podcast, with added Chris Morris

Listen to a man who used to play keyboards for D:Ream chat to Chris Morris about CERN, particle physics and relativistic mechanics here. I love the internet.

Null on (All)Top of the World

Good news: Null Hypothesis has been chosen to appear as one of the science site on entrepreneur and tech-guru Guy Kawasaki's alltop.com, a new content agglomeration site which makes it really easy to browse a lot of new sites and keep a check on your favourites.

The Null, obviously, is pick of the science category (listed under geekery) but other highlights include the Green Wombat blog (green) and weirdthings.org.uk (oddities).

Hurrah!
