The end of the world - but no party?

3 posts in one day, but we may be running out of time.

"Hey, I'm just one part of the Large Hadron Collider and I live in Geneva. On Wednesday at 7am your time a little man in a white coat is going to complete a 2 month process of turning switches on that will possibly make me create a blackhole that will instantly swallow the entire planet, sorry about that."

OK, so I guess the chances of this are QUITE small, but the fact is that there is some chance of this. This machine is going to send beams of particles at each other at almost the speed of light, which will create dark matter and possibly a blackhole. The thing is I like dark matter being in space, I don't like the idea of it being on the Swiss/French border.

Either way my main problem is that no-one has thought ahead and got together an "end of the world" party (which even could have been themed on the end of the world party in Rules of Attraction), in fact, the best thing I could find to do on Tuesday night on Time Out was a
Japanese Rope Bondage class, but that is a 4 week course, and we may only have till 7am. So I need some ideas for Tuesday night - anyone?

Read about the end of the world
here in The Guardian.

Or watch it live on Wednesday morning.
