Internet troll spamming Spanish news sites about CERN's LHC

The Internet Troll has been found spamming internet news pages that were talking about CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Spanish. He was insulting the Spanish Prime Ministry rather than commenting about the news itself (typical Troll behavior...). Fortunately for us, the Internet Sheriff found him and banned his IP!!! XD

The complete article is in this link:

Amazing how Spanish comic magazines and sites talk so much about our LHC, even for making fun of totally unrelated events :D

When everybody is Maikel, no one is...

Today we had an interesting and international discussion / debate about St.Valentine's day.

Maikel's got fed up of talking with some CERN-related couples and realizing that most don't like this day and say that it is better not celebrating St.Valentine's because "every day it's special", not just that specific day. When asked about what do they do any other day, he realized that most couples just celebrate their anniversary once a year (if anything).

Maikel's thoughts can be summarized in the following interesting sentence from the bad guy of The Incredibles : "when everyone's super, no one will be".

During the interesting discussion, there were different opinions: the general idea is that most people don't like all the merchandising and stuff that enterprises try to sell us this day, but apart from that, Maikel found:
  • who just don't like St.Valentine's day at all
  • who prefers to change it for some other day (May 1st, June 12nd...)
  • who prefers to celebrate only the anniversary
And Maikel says... "celebrate as much as you can!!!"

PS: as someone pointed out, celebrate as much as you can, but not everyday!!! XD

PS2: and... vote in the poll!!!
