The End

It didn't come today, even as the LHC was switched on and test-fired at CERN. No black holes, super-particles, or other assorted physics-related paraphenomena. While this is good news, I'm still waiting for late October, when CERN plans to actually crash particles into one another. This test was to make sure all systems were working. So far, so good. In other death-related news, a friend of mine apparently got sent home from work early today and won't be in for a week after a customer at the store he was working was found unconscious on their restroom floor without a pulse. Further updates to come, as I keep reading the news and after I talk to him directly later on. And in other destruction-related news, the Diamondbacks lost. Again. To the Giants in the ninth inning. Again. Thanks to a walk-off hit by Eugenio Velez. Again. I mean, come on guys! Why the blowup all of a sudden, dropping something like 9 of their last 10 games and falling 3-1/2 games behind the Dodgers. With so few games left in the season, it's going to be hard to catch up and reclaim the lead at this point. Finally, it's raining here, which is nice, and the forecasts call for at least a 20% chance of thunderstorms for the next few days, keeping temperatures below 100 degrees for at least the next week....
