    It's a short article, so I don't think there's much point in quoting it, as I would have to quote the whole thing, which I think would violate the LPSG rules:

    Man arrested at Large Hadron Collider claims he's from the future | CNET UK

    I will quote my favorite bit, though, which is this quotation of the suspect:
    Also, I am reminded of this:

    Wow. It would be even spookier if the article had a dateline for next April. I think this really happened.

    I love the comment - "Mr. Cole, who was wearing rather too much tweed for a man his age,............"

    I wonder what would have happened if he had run naked through the LHC?

    This is phenomenal. The guy seems to me to be the right side of lucid to make it sound like a dare.

    :doh: D'oh! I got the link from someone's post on Facebook and didn't even look at the date. I think the "April 1" is more significant than the "2010." :redface:

    Yeah, but I believe it really happened anyway. I read it somewhere.

    Anyway, even if it didn't happen, you can always travel back into the past and make it have happened.

    I'm pretty sure it already has, though. Pretty sure.

    Note to self: Cancel plans to return to past to save world from chocolate threat. Likely to end badly.

    That future guy is right. The moment we confirm the mass of the Higgs Boson, the world comes to an end. It was prophecised a thousand years ago in the ancient Vedic writings.

    By the way, that baby comes back online in March, this time at full power. Higgs, you can run, but you cannot hide!

    (Little known factoid. The LHC uses more power than the city of Geneva.)

    I think they should rename it the Large Hardon Collider.
