Large Hadrons Fleeing Europe

Groups of Large Hadrons have been seen fleeing the recent conflict in Central Europe. The bulk of the exodus appears to be through Turkey and all groups appear to be heading for non-EU countries.

Recent violence towards Large Hadrons in the vicinity of France and Switzerland have created tension in the area which appears to be spreading to other Hardon groups around the world. UN officials have not yet commented on the situation and no spokesman for the Hardon group is available for an interview, but it is clear that the word has gone out that all affested parties should exit the area.

In other news, it is suspected that the rebel group PETH (People for Ethical Treatment of Hadrons) were behind the sabotage of 1700 superconducting magnets vital for the CERN's Hadron Smashing Machine. A PETH rebel was quoted as saying "This is just the beginning. We will intensify our activities unless CERN guaranties that no Hadrons will be harmed during Hadron Smashing."

I understand that people who used to think nothing about getting a large hadron are now hesitant about having a large hadron in a public place.

According to the Associated Press, the Large Hadron is currently "buried inside a 17-mile (27-kilometer) tunnel below the earth... The inside of the tubes are ... at a temperature colder than outer space... That can require a slow, controlled warmup taking several weeks..."

Ay, the things made public these days...

Anyway, it's probably a good thing it went down, because it had been up for well over 4 hours.

It seems odd that to keep a hadron excited you put it in a frigid place....
