Now This Is Funny!

Scientists in Europe constructed this 17 mile long supercollider to re-enact the Big Bang.  It took more than two decades to build and cost over ten BILLION dollars.  They started it up last week, and it ran for about 36 hours before it broke down.  It will now require a couple of months to repair.

What a remarkable use of resources!  How well built and cleverly designed!  It is reminiscent of the Hubble Telescope which was put into orbit with faulty mirrors and opticals and needed to be repaired in outer space before it was useful.  Don't you just love the care and precision of modern science!  This is just hilarious!
