The end is nigh!



On Wednesday September 10th at 8.30am UK time the world’s biggest machine, The Large Haddron Collider will be switch on on in Geneva. I’ve read lots about it but I really don’t understand what it does.

The head of public relations said recently "People phone me and say that they are seriously worried. Please tell me that my children are safe”. Emails also arrive every day that beg for reassurance that the world will not end, he explained.

Others are more aggressive. There are a number who say: "You are evil and dangerous and you are going to destroy the world."

It should prove very interesting!



The world will end on Wednesday
That’s what some people think
I’ll have to stay up Tuesday night
and have a final drink.

I’ll prob’ly go to heaven
at least I think I should
I’ve done my best for fellow man
I’ve always been quite good

Rosey’s bought a golden bag
in which to pack some things
A robe made from a clean white sheet
and plastic angel wings

I hope there’ll be a blogosphere
beyond the pearly gates
A place where I can ramble on
and write to all my mates

Have those people got it wrong
or have they got it right?
If nothing happens Wednesday morn
we’ll chat on Wednesday night.

My new URL will be http://www.keithscelestialramblings.paradise.com
