LHC Powers Down... End potentially delayed for 2 years.

We're a bit late to the party here.  Forgive us?   But just a brief update on the Large Hadron Collider.

Apparently it's finally powering down - for 2 years - to install some updates so it will finally be able to perform at full capacity.  Maybe that's when it will finally destroy us all. []

And so it begins....

It begins....

this really happened...  Meteorite explodes over Russia (

[UPDATE 2013-02-15 13:46] And here we thought this couldn't get any freakier... "A poll on the website for the Ridus news agency shows that 51 percent of Russian respondents believe today's meteor is the start of an alien invasion" according to the Washington Post's Max Fisher. [washington post]

Good News Wednesday - LHC didn't destroy us in 2012

The good news this Wednesday, other than this being the first Good News Wednesday post in almost 2 years, is that the Large Hadron Collider didn't kill us in 2012. EIGN is now cautiously optimistic we will make it through 2013 without major incident. (At least one caused by the LHC).

Oh, and they also found that whole "god particle" thingy. Good for them. (discover magazine)

If you happen to read this

The internet made it.  Better yet,  YOU made it.    Here's hoping we did.  
Have a safe and happy remainder of 2012. We'll see you sometime early next year when Good News Wednesday will make its triumphant return. (We hope).

We made it

Holy shit.

We made it. 12-21-2012 is only


day away.

We assume the Mayans were wrong-or meant something else entirely-and that we'll actually still be here come saturday... but if not, it's been fun world.  It's been fun.

Your friendly EIGN staff hope to be around more in 2013.  Things have gotten so much worse since this blog was started back in 2008 that we feel it's only appropriate to try to document it a bit better.  We'll see. 

happy end of the world and thanks for being here - if anyone is,
