As evidenced by our continued existence, the activation of the Large Hadron Collider did not result in the end of life as we know it. But then, the scientists and engineers involved in building the LHC knew how to minimise the chances of creating a singularity, opening a portal to an alternate dimension or triggering a regular old explosion.
