Space Man

Good to see my old pal Dr Brian Cox doing well in the TV world. He's doing some gravity thing on Horizon next Tuesday at 9pm. He's a total dude. I never really knew what he was on about half the time...and he was doing layman's stuff.
I'll actually miss it because I'm off to London tomorrow for what is looking like a three day drinking binge. If I don't get mugged or stabbed or otherwise killed I'll be back with interesting stories from the big dark city on Wednesday.

I was worrying Molly for months, because I read an interview with the good Dr Cox when he said he was due to turn on some great particle-smashing engine of doom at CERN sometime during last December - the aim was to creat a particle of dark matter or something (like I know what he was on about). The down side was, if the worse case scenario happened, the world could have vanished in a micro second.
Everytime she asked me about our plans for Christmas I said "why bother, we'll have vanished into a black hole by December 27th."
Cheered her up no end, it did.

Saw that Horizon thing tonight. He's good, but I wish he wouldn't smile all the time. It's like he's on drugs.

He is.

Only jokin' like. I really like this guy's telly stuff. Me and sonny (who digs physics) watched this and the one St A mentions above. Yes, we also were concerned about the potentiality of creating a black hole as a side effect of firing the big gun they'd built, which I believe they actually did Nov 26 of last year.

In fact we strongly believe that the world we were all in last year prior to the event did actually vanish due to this act of human folly, but only in some of the infinite number of parallel universes we exist in. Or something like that...

Riiiight.
Anyway, I like him. Used to get drunk & talk about space & infinity with him.

I love the idea that he turned on a machine to create Dark Matter rather than the Christmas Lights...
