I am so infuriated right now that typing is painful.
I have waited as patiently as possible for the last pieces of the detectors to be positioned. The people on this project have taken 15+ years out of their lives to devote to this endeavor. The math, hypotheses, applications, and dreams of an entire international organization have been tirelessly focused upon THIS YEAR.
I took a deep breath when the low-energy run was cancelled due to faulty magnets produced WHERE? Here in the US.
I counted to 10 when Fermilab had its funding cut by GW after a promise earlier in his presidency NOT to do so..
This crosses the motherfucking line.
Anyone that even lends one ounce of credence to the 'misgivings' concerning the LHC project has no fucking clue as to what is meant by the metaphorical terminologies used by the scientists to initially pique the interest of the public.
The people gripped by fear from their own ignorant imaginations have willfully exercised the greatest flaw in human nature... allowing themselves to become victims of a sci-phobia cult.
The first fucking preacher to use this in a sermon as a sign of the 'end times' anywhere near me is going to get slapped.
I've really had it.
