Man arrested at Large Hadron Collider claims he’s from the future
God Damn, but that is some high quality crazy! And the headline is just the beginning. Here’s my other favorite bit (in truth, I should really just quote the whole thing, but I’ll let you savor the rest on your own):
Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.
The LHC successfully collided particles at record force earlier this week, a milestone Mr Cole was attempting to disrupt by stopping supplies of Mountain Dew to the experiment’s vending machines. He also claimed responsibility for the infamous baguette sabotage in November last year.
So, you’ve traveled back in time to stop a world-destroying cataclysm, and your grand plan forgoes super future weapons or clever John-Connor-killing-style paradoxes and goes straight for…stopping Mountain Dew supplies
Unbelievable…which is why it is the April Fool’s Day Story from CNET.
