Well, I TRIED to listen to the big switch-on this morning, but I obviously wasn't as awake as I thought I was, because all I can remember is hearing applause and cheering, thinking that was probably a good sign, then going back to sleep. Well, it's 13.30 now, and I'm pretty sure I still exist, so I assume there's been no terrible black hole-related accidents yet. (I know, I know, they haven't started actually colliding things yet.)
Still, only 45 minutes and counting til Torchwood will be here to make the apocalypse a gayer place save us all!
Anyway! Main point of this post: This is all kinds of awesome. The Large Hadron rap Particle physics rules, yo.
