This may well be an urban myth but I not going to search to find out because the idea appeals to me greatly.
You know that particle accelerator thingie called the Hadron Collider that cost umpteen billion Euros? Well, like our much slower human particle accelerator, the Southern Observation Wheel, it broke.
We are told the Hadron Collider may come up with the beginning of the universe. What? It will spit out a photo of god?
It would seem our much cheaper and slower wheel broke because of poor construction.
But it was just one of those little freaks of nature that brought the multi billion euro Hadron Collider to a grinding halt. An overflying bird dropped a baguette upon the Collider and it went kaput. So, we can blame the French.
