Today I saw, among other things, links to the user manual for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This got me thinking of the stereotypical user manual for crazy large government-scale objects, and how they always seem to begin with “Congratulations on your purchase of a Large Hadron Collider!” They continue with prattle about how you’ll become the envy of your friends and other small governments, how over a thousand scientists in lab coats labored for years to produce this fine product for your use in taking over the world, or whatever. Then, I did a quick google search for Congratulations on your purchase of, and was amused by how many products actually begin their manuals like that.

Anyway, onto the links.

More tomorrow!
