As long as they are wearing a mask it will be ok.

Yep! And I recalled Mandela dying in prison too. I also had a freaky experience just last week. One of my bathroom lights went out months ago. I never changed it and no one else in the house would have. It started working again Friday morning. Did we get shifted again?

Sounds like the chip in my debit card

In general, I think the energy issue is what makes all this safe... we can't generate the amount of energy required to do something truly cataclysmic.

However, someone help me out here. I used to know a lot more about quantum physics as a lad, when I wanted to be the next Scotty (Star Trek). Grown adult responsibilities have dulled my mind;

But: tiny black holes? Forgive me, but isn't the size irrelevant? As in, once you start a black hole, won't it suck in surrounding matter, and start increasing mass? And then grow accordingly?

We're either not talking about "black holes" as commonly understood, or they're indeed fricking around with dangerous concepts. I would imagine the safeguard might be to play within a suitably large vacuum, and allow it to decompose after it's formed... do black holes decompose or dissipate? I'd think once you have collapsed subatomic distances enough to create a massive enough object that it becomes a singularity (black hole), it "stays". In theory then, you could seek to contain in within a suitable vacuum, but that would need to be in perpetuity. A breakdown of the vacuum in a decade, century, millennia etc, would lead to a cascade that would suck in surrounding matter, grow, and -poof- we're gone.

If you thought Mandela died in prison you should be convinced you're retarded.

My theory tonight: The LHC has ended the world multiple times already. We're the universe that splinters off that keeps going.

Glad to see that someone else also realized the implications of this. They basically need to have a “box” ready to put this thing in when/if they create a black hole. They’ll have to go into the collider and retrieve the black hole. The “box” has gotta work and it’s gotta last forever (not an exaggeration).

What I’m also wondering about is how this all happens regarding the behavior of time. Time would move significantly slower as your distance increased from the black hole. So an hour extremely close to the black hole would be possibly relative to 50,000 hours for us as the observers.

Me browsing the OT at 1:40am looking for some lighthearted fun.

And then I see posts like this.....

You talking weapons use, or overall danger?

I don't know all the physics behind it, but I do know the basic principle is collapsing the distance between subatomic particles, to form an incredibly massive (for it's size) object. There are forces in play that keep these particles spaced out, to overcome those, I'd think we're talking enormous amounts of energy will be in play. We're talking a step beyond fusion, we're talking subatomic collapse.

I guess the concept is, you do a small enough group of particles, you (I suppose) could temporarily "squeeze" them into an artificial singularity, but they'd rebound back to normal when you reach the end of whatever you're doing to collapse them.
You simply don't have the necessary energy to sustain an artificial singularity without the added assistance of gravity (native to real black holes).

If so, the dangers involved might be-
a; if you're slamming and compressing matter, I suppose there might be a risk of fusion. Heck, I would assume the same basic technique would be in play to start a fusion reaction, so that might be the primary purpose of this. But you need to ensure you have a clean environment, you don't want to spark something that could be explosive and breach containment.

b; in playing with this, people better be sure of their math. I'm sure they are, but the error is a doomsday scenario...
basically, you want to stay below the threshold for creating a sustained singularity. At some point, the compressed matter will obtain enough mass to sustain, and I don't think we know any means of reversing THAT. And if you exceed the threshold and make one, it's over.

Are the scientists saying wear a mask, or don't wear a mask this week? Keep in mind, today is the 18th, an even numbered day, before answering.
