LHC arrested a savior from the future
On April 1st, CNET in the U.K. ran an appropriate story about a strange man who was arrested at the LHC:
Unfortunately, he couldn't find fuel for his time machine power unit, a device that resembles a kitchen blender. And to make things even worse, Cole himself was taken to a secret psychiatric asylum administered by the police; however, he managed to evaporate and no one cried because of that.
CNET quotes Cox as saying that Cole is harmless because he didn't mention the bloody black holes. And they remind everyone that Cole's visit was predicted by Masao Ninomiya and Holger Bech Nielsen, a string theory pioneer. ;-) Somewhat paradoxically, this piece of information is the most serious proposition of the CNET's article.
It's also true that an Islamic LHC physicist had been arrested half a year ago for his terror links - and that a bird has attacked the collider with a piece of bread just a month later.
