What We Thought This Decade Would Be Like Vs. Reality

The Large Hadron Collider Would Destroy Earth


In 2008, the first beam was shot through the Large Hadron Collider – a move that was supposedly going to rip open a black hole and destroy the entire Earth. The LHC was created to test various theories of particle physics and provide answers to previously unsolved physics questions. The idea of the collider ripping open a wormhole was so infamous that it was later used in the film The Cloverfield Experiment.

Needless to say, the LHC hasn’t ripped a hole in the space-time continuum yet. Or maybe it did and we never noticed. What if the Earth really was thrown into a different, almost identical dimension where reality stars can become U.S. presidents? 2018 is pretty weird.
