Oh the pain, the pain

First off, dagnappit, let me say this for the bazillionth time: The Large Hadron Collider will not make black holes, strangelets, or any other Earth-munching apparitions.

We cool on that? Yes? Good.

Now, BABloggee and my old friend Al Janulaw pointed me to The Pain web comic, which has a pretty funny panel on the LHC (one of the panels is on the left there). The author/artist, Tim Kreider, also wrote a good essay at that link about science, why it's cool, and why it's not cool that it's distorted by political and religious factions.

He has earned himself a place in my RSS feed reader. This one is pretty funny too. Some NSFW language there, if you care.
