I’d heard there were people predicting the LHC would bring about the end of the world, but it was kind of hard to process. I didn’t really take it seriously until I saw someone online yesterday talking about how scared they were and how they were just sure that even if the world didn’t end, something would go horribly, awfully wrong. And even then I thought they were joking at first.
Nope, we’re all still here.
What really got me was how this person seemed to think there was some sort of huge conspiracy of silence and secrecy surrounding the project. I mean, come on. If this is a grand secret conspiracy, then someone’s doing something very wrong:
Anyway, there are far better things to be scared of than some boogeyman ‘OMG they’re performing SCIENCE’ media frenzy. If I’m going to get stressed, it’s going to be over something that actually has a real chance of ruining my life.

In the meantime, we now have a total of 30 items up at our etsy crafts store (including two more bookmarks!), and have sold our very first item through them!
