Dis’CERN’ing the financial blackhole

When the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was about to be fired off, some sceptics feared it might create micro blackholes that might suck in the entire planet! It isn’t clear what’s cooking in the 27km Swiss-French kitchen, but the world surely did witness a micro blackhole develop. Only that it was across the Atlantic, and it wasn’t a Higgs boson but Lehman’s bosom in the eye of the storm. Hank Paulson must have wished the LHC did suck up the whole world before he was called out to build a Hank’s arc to save all the toxic waste spewing out of Wall Street.

Let’s just hope we come out of the recent blackhole and never get into the other.
