Black Holistic

Ah, good. Now we can at least see who wins the presidential election before the man-made black holes devour the earth.
GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) -- The world's largest atom smasher, which was launched with great fanfare earlier this month, is more badly damaged than previously thought and will be out of commission for at least two months, its operators said Saturday.
...
Its start came over the objections of some who feared that the collision of protons could imperil the Earth by creating micro black holes, subatomic versions of collapsed stars whose gravity is so strong they can suck in planets and other stars.
And for the sarcastically impaired, I'm not really worried the LHC is going to destroy the earth. But I'm training an army of white holes in my basement just in case.

so, let's say that a mini-blackhole is created under the border of France & Switzerland by this bad boy...

is there anyway we can send McSpain and Palin over there on a fact finding mission?
