There's Always A Boom Tomorrow

CERN scientists say they've broken the speed of light.

No, this is the weird result from 2011 that turned out to be a bad cable. Nobody believed the result at the time, including the people who announced it (more in the spirit of "what did we do wrong?").

Hm. Wretchard passed it tonight as news, but that happens. You're right, though, when it came up in 2011 I sent it to a doctor of physics (with a separate Ph.D. in metaphysics) and asked him about it. He said that he doubted it would hold up. I thought this was a new finding, but I suppose not.

Don't open a gate to Cthulhu and the Elder Gods. We need our water on Earth, not in another dimension.

Those mad scientists are always digging too deep.

Generally CERN's power levels, like the one they did for the Higgs Boson test (that was them, probably), are probably safe. Probably.

Then there's invisible energies like this, which is more in the wildcard department.

The last time people had to deal with mystical, magical, energy fields that were invisible, it was radiation and electromagnetic field theory. Then before that, it was probably electricity and magnetism.
