At least the other guy is using a torque wrench... But he must be some kind of dignitary, they had to put a big arrow showing which one to tighten...

If I had the choice between a portal to Xen and a black hole, I'd choose the first one anyways. Good thing Gordon's there to take out the Nihilanth.

If you squint, you can see the silhouette of the G-Man.

Ah... good, I don't have to start a new thread on the LHC, which got started up within the past day (9/10-ish):

Metafilter reports (9/9/2008) (http://www.metafilter.com/74727/TMinus)
MSNBC summarizes (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24525554/) (9/8/2008)
A few WIRED! posts:
Last Major Piece Fitted (2/29/2008) (http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2008/02/last-major-piec.html)
The sealing of the Liquid Nitrogen and Liquid Helium Cooling System (11/7/2007) (http://blog.wired.com/wiredscience/2007/11/supercooling-sy.html)
Summary from 11/30/2006 (http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/news/2006/11/72198#comments)

Somewhere there was a gallery from WIRED, but I guess this will have to do. (Boston.com, bigger than WIRED!'s images too). (http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2008/08/the_large_hadron_collider.html)

I was talking to a classmate about it, and he was super excited about the superfluid (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superfluid) properties of the liquid helium (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liquid_helium), which after seeing this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Z6UJbwxBZI) is pretty neat.

Enjoy!
