Mad Scientist's Union

The Stupid! It BURNS!!!

I now have proof that Neanderthal's had enough intelligence to post YouTube comments. Check out the 4 part series that starts here. Don't waste your time watching the actual video. The video is inane "The Large Hadron Collider is going to destroy the Earth!" B.S., but the comments are where the true stupidity lies. The ignorant panic mongering is exceeded only by the rampant anti-intellectualism. It's comedy gold and pure horror at the same time.

I will never understand people who start up a computer, go online, and post comments about how terrible science is. *headdesk*

Oh, and by the way - the LHC officially goes online in about 4.5 hours. It'll be interesting to see the comments after we aren't all crushed by a black hole. I've noticed that they've already started shifting the doomsday prediction to "it won't do anything right away, but after several weeks the Earth will be torn apart by a quasar."
