It is rather cool.

Just in case we do get sucked into a black hole, it was nice to meet you that once Gordon. :) :)

I've Got Einstein on my Mind
by Jim Purdy


Listen to me one and all, Oh dear,
For bad news I bring, The End is Near.

In the UK, the Daily Mail tried to clue us in,
That those mad scientists are going to do us in.

Yes indeed, they have published a news article
Warning us of a runaway sub-atomic particle.

The Large Hadron Collider is to blame,
And our universe will soon end in flame.

Oh man, the fireworks will be spectacular,
It'll be so big, I won't need my binocular.

As the end nears, some may grieve and mourn,
But I'll enjoy the show, just eating my popcorn.

Someday I'll entertain grandkids with the story I'll tell,
Oh. Wait. I guess I won't have any grandkids, oh well.

In college, we laughed at those physics dorks,
Always talking about their tachyons and quarks.

Yes, soon the world will be gone, we'll be no more,
Thanks to guys named Fermi, Heisenberg and Bohr.

So, as I await the end of all mankind,
I've got Albert Einstein on my mind.

Please explain.
Especially "Teh cool!".

Hey Lucy, did you click the link? Also, the 'Large Hadron rap' on Youtube mentioned by anonymous is moderately Teh Cool, and would be cooler if the people concerned had actual senses of rhythm ;-)

'Teh cool' is internet slang for 'cool'. Don't ask me, I only work here.

Ian, and you. If we did get sucked into a black hole, we would meet again, and probably a bit too close for comfort!
