Large Hardon

Here's a Daily Show clip about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). When the LHC turned on late last year, I noticed that most of the mainstream media stories on the LHC made sure to give "equal time" to the crazy kooks (redundant?) who think that the LHC is going to destroy the world. If someone didn't know better, they could get the impression from those stories that the kooks' version of reality was as legitimate as the scientists'. It's sort of sad that it takes a comedy show to get it right. I guess I've come to expect that the Daily Show is the best source for accurate reporting.

  4. That's very well done. It almost makes up for the misuse of the phrase "begging the question." Walter does seem to be an almost parody of a naive Bayesian.
