LHC about to kill us all

CERN's LHC is about to fire up soon, and that means before too long one of three things will happen:

1) we'll have the first evidence Higgs particles exist

3) the universe will implode as the creation of antimatter sparks a chain reaction tearing apart the fabric of space and time itself

It is my hope that the answer is not "an anti-Earth that had anti-Europeans who spent an 60 billion anti-euros on creating an anti-LHC". :)

But, what the hell. Here's to hoping we're all here after they flip the switch, and a geek rap video about what they're doing:
