CERN's LHC 'First Beam' to be broadcast live on Wednesday

Set your alarms and kiss the kids goodbye, CERN will be providing a live webcast of the Large Hadron Collider's "First Beam" maiden voyage on Wednesday. Let us know how it goes, we'll be holed-up inside grandpa's bombshelter with our canned turnips and 10th anniversary Heaven's Gate Nikes -- remember, two-knocks if it's safe else we'll assume you're a robot.

Which brings us to the subject of SPORES...
A pretty good review of the game appears in ArsTechnica (Link below)

Note: A version of this game just came out for the iPhone.
12 years later... we're playing Spore

With Spore, Will Wright intends to make you an Intergalactic Galactic ruler who begins life as a bottom-feeding primordial soup dweller. When I first saw the game back in early 2006 I wondered, would Wright and his team over at Maxis be able to pull this off? I didn't mean "pull it off" in the technical sense, but in the gaming sense of making it fun. I've waited a long time to see if Wright succeeded, and when my review copy arrived in the mail recently I found out the answer. know.
