Dancing Club Halloween party!!!


Rumors say that there will be a Dancing Club Halloween party somewhere around CERN this Friday night. Club members and their friends are invited to such scary event...

And it will be really scary. There will be no monsters, witches nor zombies (just people disguised as such). But... you will see... DANCING PEOPLE!!! Run for your life before the rock'n roll starts shaking your legs and tango makes you slide around the floor, while salsa and chachacha tries to move your cu-cu!!

I definitively would not go if I was you.

In such case, there will be more girls and drinks for me, of course. Mmm, but if I was you and not me, would I really worry about me?? mmm, ok, let's go back to work and stop thinking so much. What was I doing... Ah, I know, I was working on the CERN plan for destroying the world, or at least the Vatican...

Official CERN article by Virginia!!!

Yes, she worked on an official CERN article!!

It's not so much surprising, as we all knew that she is official member of TOTEM outreach and she is also publishing science-related articles in many Italian media (yeah, she always says I don't listen but actually I do!!)

Congratulations, Virginia!!

By the way, Fidel noticed that this important TOTEM scientist receiving the award is also an important politician in his country (a member of the parliament). We are ashamed that instead in Spain our politicians wear fake magical / magnetic / ionized bracelets believing in their powers...
For instance, here and here you see the current Spanish Ministry of Health :(

PS: I got Virginia's photo from google images. Actually that one was in the news for CERN Women's day celebrations.

Gordon Freeman spotted at CERN!!!

What?? You don't know who is Gordon Freeman?? I guess you work at CERN by mistake because you are not nerd enough as you did not play Half Life in your life :)

In that computer game, Gordon Freeman arrives late for work at the Black Mesa Research Facility, using its tram system. He suits on his HEV suit before proceeding to the test chamber of the Anomalous Materials Lab, to assist in an experiment. He is tasked with pushing a non-standard specimen into the scanning beam of the Anti-Mass Spectrometer for analysis. This creates a catastrophe called a "resonance cascade, opening a portal between Earth and a dimension called Xen.

We hope that Freeman didn't come to CERN to screw it up again!!! XD

PS: I must give credit to Fernando for providing me such important photograph

R1 vs R2... superheroes FIGHT!!!

During past days some unexpected super-event happened at CERN, and many people did not even noticed it. Someone in a group of friends decided to create a poll to discuss the never-ending debate about if going to lunch to R1 or R2. The results of the poll were totally unexpected.

Many well known (and not so well known) super heroes voted there!!!

Unfortunately, most of them went somewhere else than to R1 or R2 or went disguised so they were unnoticed.

Strangely, the day after, another mysterious poll appeared. And this time many other superheroes voted!!

We got few conclusions from that.
  • First, probably Virginia is dating spiderman!!!
  • Second, Jorge may be spiderman or may know him!!!
  • Third, there was a more than probable sabotage of the votations!!!
In the other hand, today there was a big female fight between Virginia and Eli for going to R1 or R2. Finally Eli won because of the non show up of her opponent (had to go to P5 in a hurry, probably to have lunch with Spiderman in the Carrefour restaurant).

New poll about white hair!!

Yes, CERN people also has white hair sometimes. I was just wondering where...

Where do you have it, if any??? :)

Poll closed about what to read in a bar!

When one of the last days of Diego at Cern, we were discussing at R1 about what would could we read in a night bar. Let's continue reading to understand what could lead to such stupid poll.

His point was that if you see a person alone smoking then that is totally normal, while if that person is alone doing anything else, everybody would think he/she is a freak and a very weird person.

I said, that I disagree because if that person was alone just reading anything, I would consider him/her normal. And then he said "what about if the place is not just a park but a night bar???". Then, in a bar, nobody would care if that person is alone smoking but they would freak out if they see that person alone reading.

After my question of what would he do if anyway he had to read anything, he said that probably the most normal thing would be to read a porn magazine there...

I'll just write people's replies to the poll in the comments!
