    Haha that reminds me, in one of my astro classes we had a problem set showing why, given the worst case scenario, the fear about the super-collider was unfounded. Stupid media hype, that problem set took me about 8 hours :(.

    I think the conclusion was that the largest mass black hole capable of being produced evaporated in 10^-1000 seconds or something.

    and about that same size in meters. Nothing near a planet eating one that they went on and on about.

    It's a fact that the world will end tomorrow.

    When tomorrow will end nobody knows.

    I believe in it whole heartedly and it has been nothing but a pain. Every time I try to complete one of the online retirement planning calculators, there is not a selection for life expectancy of 34. GRRRRR

    You can't definitely predict the world will end in 2012, just like you cannot predict that it will not end in 2012.

    I wonder what the probability of a random terrible disaster occurring is.

    I mean there are hundreds of 2012 predictions of all kinds. Someone is bound to guess right sometime.

    Here is my prediction:

    Scientists "accidentally" manufacture an incurable doomsday plague. There is massive panic, and most, if not all nations around the globe fall into anarchy. The plague wipes out 90% of the worlds population. The plague survivors band into small regional kingdoms and fight each other over resources. Within a century or two, technology devolves to a dark age level, and we have a repeat of the middle ages. At this point higher technology is so scarce that commoners consider it "magic". People who use technology to their benefit are seen as wizards/sorcerers.

    2012 is actually going to be the beginning of a fantasy novel.:D

    Almost melt. James Bond will show up at the last second and defeat the evil mastermind dude and thwart his plan to flood most of the earth.
