Armageddon Postponed

Technovelgy speculates on time-traveling tinkerers as a possible cause of the Large Hadron Collider’s recent malfunction. Somehow or other our imminent death by planet-sucking black hole has been postponed until the spring, leaving us all plenty of time to do those last-minute things that a species should do before meeting its Maker.

A while back I found a writing prompt on this topic: “The world will end in one week. What will you do until then?” My little story involved playing Cassandra, like the folks at LHC Facts, though I was only trying to convince people to help me party like it was 1999. So my writing prompt for the day is: The world will end in six months when the LHC finally creates that planet-sucking black hole. What will you do until then?
