LHC Ad: Beware Bears

You may have noticed an ad running on scienceblogs which says “Has the LHC destoyed the Earth?” If you click on it you find a webpage that says in big letters simply “NO”. What’s up with that? Check out the webpage source for the page (http://www.hasthelhcdestroyedtheearth.com/).
Update 9/12/08: Check out the comments for more fun and also read the cat projectile analyzers take on how you can click to save the world.

Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the earth yet?



var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);
document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src='” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’

var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-143825-2”);

Oh shit, bears.

    if the lhc actually destroys the earth & this page isn’t yet updated
    please email to receive a full refund

  2. The Coleman and de Luccia paper looks quite interesting, but unfortunately it seems it was published in the days before there was an arXiv and the paper appears to be behind a paywall 🙁
