On the Dullness of Scientists

Scientists - they're so, so.... dull. The Royal Society of Chemistry ran a context to rename the Large Hadron Collider. The winner was Halo. Even Wired was struck dumb by the monumental dullness of this and has started its own contest. I expect the winner will be Zak. As far as I am concerned, it is Stuart and that's that. 


  1. Damn computer games geeks get everywhere...

    Wasn't even such a good game.

  2. I suggest calling it the Small Hadron Collider - as in "No, no, nothing special. Just something we knocked together out of some old bits we had lying around ..."

    No style these days.


  3. The job should have been given to Ikeas naming committee, they may have come up with..Vastklasher. Or......

  4. Ah, bless 'em! It's HAL isn't it? - and is it thus going to speak, sometime in the future when it becomes sentient: 'HELLO, I'M HALO. I BRING YOU LOVE'.
    That'll shock 'em!
