“The stranger was still gripping Lancellotti as Lorio noticed her neighbor was lying in a pool of blood. She didn’t learn what happened until she began dressing the wound — with the stranger still clutching her neighbor’s shirt.

“He said, ‘He bit my arm, chewed the flesh and swallowed it in front of me, ‘ ” Lorio recalled. She said the bite measured almost 3 by 1 1/2 inches, and was less than 1/4-inch deep.”

If you haven’t listened to the preview of ‘Measure of a Man’ in the fans area, then today is your last chance, because I’m taking it down on Monday. Click here!

We’re a couple of weeks away from releasing the final version, and I want to remind you how important our message is.

We’ve all seen the Terminator films, we all know this is inevitable. Robot technology is so advanced that it is only a matter of months before they become self aware, and there’s no real world set of Asimov’s laws of robotics.

We’re doomed to be variously pincered, lasered, or mown down by the caterpillar tracks of some evil real-life Johnny 5. I’ve seen the Short Circuit films, and it isn’t funny. It’s terrifying.

Pete’s drawn a picture to help:

ps. in other news, I’m taking part in the 50/90 songwriting challenge. So far I have songs about aliens putting things under people’s skin, drunkenly digging up dead people, and using childhood games to decide which of your captives should die. Look you here!

I dunno, add yourself as a fan or something. I think that’s how it works.

Yes, I said HARDON.

Apocalypse Variant #6153

On 21 March, Luis Sancho, from Spain, and Hawaii resident Walter Wagner filed a lawsuit in Hawaii’s US District Court against CERN and US contributors to the project demanding that they do not operate the LHC until they prove it is safe.

The collider will simulate conditions less than a billionth of a second after the big bang, by smashing protons together at enormous energies. Physicists hope to resolve long-standing questions, such as why particles have mass and whether space has hidden extra dimensions.

But Wagner and Sancho’s court papers raise theoretical scenarios in which the LHC could create particles that gobble up the Earth, such as “killer strangelets”. Strangelets are hypothetical blobs of matter containing “strange” quarks, as well as the usual “up” and “down” types that make up ordinary matter.

If a strangelet were stable and negatively charged, it might begin eating the nuclei of ordinary matter, converting them into strange matter. Eventually the menacing chain reaction could assimilate our entire planet and everyone on it.

I’m entertained that these two honestly believe they’ve out-thought the minds behind the LHC. I imagine the big brains at CERN doing their best Reese Shearsmith, “OH YAH I HADDUN FORT OF DAT!”. Sancho and Wagner (sounds like an hilariously ill-matched ethnic buddy cop series) obviously missed the 2003 safety review.

Still, I’d be content knowing we’d managed to accidentally destroy the planet in the pursuit of a greater understanding of the universe. ‘S better than kicking the shit out of it in selfish ignorance.
