So far, the LHC is a good thing for everyone. It has brought Ken back, and the scientists working in it are too busy with catchy rap songs
to create black holes
It has. You are now in a parallel alternate universe exactly like the one you were in before they fired up the LHC.
Not fair, that was going to be my answer
If the world ends, will we at least have a few minutes to think about how cool it is and watch it end? or will it happen in the blink of an eye and no one gets to appreciate it?
Nah, if it ends by means of the LHC you won't even have the time to check up the site. And then, how would you know if it ended? Now, wouldn't you be curious about what happens if the black hole sucks everything up? (according to Futurama, we'll play an endless round of Dungeons & Dragons :-D)
Think of such classics as: nuclear reactors being perfectly safe; hydrocarbon emissions and the greenhouse effect actually being beneficial (i.e. forestalling another ice age); all the product safety claims being made about half the pharmaceutical products currently being sold; and slapping the buzzword 'green' on every product and service out there.
Funny, I would consider just the first one as a classic, the other three is the first time I heard about them (yes, yes, that's including strip mining).
The intro scene from Another World is pretty actual: YouTube
What a beautyful game, and it was about the 1990.
That would be more like a temporal dimension vortex actually (ala Half-Life).
