LHC can't get me! Wink

I'm glad. I'm also glad I didn't write some it's-the-end-of-the-world-gushy-e-mail to a crush or anything...not that I was thinking about it... Wink

I guess I should have qualified my last post with a scientific statement. "the probability that the collider will destroy the earth via black hole isn't zero".

Zero works for me. Not close to it. if you try close to it enough times, you lose.

I should qualify that.

Zero where the stakes are the catastrophic end of all life on earth. I can live with close to zero on the lesser things with indirect effects like the butterfly effect.

This just goes to show that Science is willing to take risks that we all could pay for. Yeah, I heard the "we think it would have happened already if it could happen" comment. But you know what? If we actually knew what happened we would not have needed to build the accelerator to begin with.

The best science ever gets is a theory to approximate reality. Everyone else lives in the real world.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
