I am officially a nerd

While perusing the last week's New Scientist (I realise that in itself is probably enough to qualify me as a nerd; it's my new favourite magazine) I found myself laughing hysterically at this short section from Feedback:
'Philip Welsby writes to tell us that no one noticed that the universe branched in two when the LHC went into operation on 10 September. Luckily, he says, "we were in the universe that continued" rather than in the one that got swallowed up by a black hole.'
The thing is… it could so easily be true…
