SO! The world has ended then!

Got to say this black hole malarkey was all a bit of a damp squib. I was expecting mind bending alterations of gravity and perspective as we were all sucked in to an alternate dimension, but no.

All that happened in my office was the dog sniffed his denuded bollocky region as the doomsday clock struck 0830.

And the alternate dimension is a bit like the last fucker If I am honest. All in all a bit of a disappointing armageddon. Must try harder.

So - what portentous event happened with you as the world ended?

In the run up to the end of the world I made myself a cup of tea, logged onto ARRSE and prepared myself for going out laughing.....unfortunately I now find myself in the position of having done no work this morning and will have to stay late :( bloody scientists!


Edited to add that I did for a moment think I had been sucked into a black hole, but then I remembered I was at work. :roll:

No - You don't need to do the work - the world has ended you see.

My point is it was all a bit low rent. Nothing like I was led to believe it would be like by Hollywood and Dr Who.

I feel cheated.

One thing that does console me about all this if it does go tits up, the French will cease to be a nano-second before we do which is a result as far as im concerned

The bloke opposite me complained of suffering a rather damp and sticky fart- exactly at 08:30! He blamed the black hole. Was it a coincidence? Perhaps, but this is a small office and I really needed the world to end.

A tin of poncey arrsed brown sugar cubes has appeared in the kitchen at work. Obviously the work of a CERN generated wormhole since nobody will admit responsibility. And we've got no biscuits either.

My day at work REALLY sucked today. I feel drained, on the egde of an abyss. All I can see is darkness.

I knew it would end like this.

Actually, the world did end today only you didn't notice because the marketing was handled by the recently out-of-work TA100 communications director.

Hope this helps.

The black holes won't actually arrive until October I'm afraid. Today was just a test to see if the circuit was adequate, a sort of dry run, if you like. In October sometime they'll start crashing protons together, and then we might all die.

Has anyone else visitied the BBC's page about this? I was amused to see that some engineers had hidden 2 bottles of Heineken in the central tube. The BBC pointed out the brands motto, "The beer that refreshes the parts that other beers can't reach". Haha.
