It's those little hammers again

Large Hadron Collider Shut Down Until Spring 2009 "Full-power operation of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) won't happen until early spring 2009, after an electrical glitch sparked a large helium leak inside the machine's tunnels." (National Geographic)

Electrical glitch my foot. It's like those archaeologists with their little hammers digging out skulls and proclaiming that all ancient people had their skulls smashed with little hammers. They've only gone and caused a rip in spacetime. It is no coincidence that the BBC's atomic clock missed a beat recently and then gave the signal for one hour later.
