A would-be saboteur arrested today at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland made the bizarre claim that he was from the future. Eloi Cole, a strangely dressed young man, said that he had travelled back in time to prevent the LHC from destroying the world.

The LHC successfully collided particles at record force earlier this week, a milestone Mr Cole was attempting to disrupt by stopping supplies of Mountain Dew to the experiment's vending machines. He also claimed responsibility for the infamous baguette sabotage in November last year.

I'd also like to know more about the baguette sabotage now

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

You should be more sensitive. This is a very serious issue.

ETA: I think we should start a thread in Activism. This needs awareness. This needs to be addressed.

I apologize for my insensitivity to this serious issue. I blame my personal lack of Kit-Kats?

Sounds like that was an interesting day at the office for the Collider folks though.

Yes, that Higgs Boson is treacherous! I hope they are able to return him to the future from whence he came.

Mr. Cole was heard saying: "Calvin, why do you keep calling me Calvin?"

Ah, but what is age other than a silly number? I am not old, I am youthfully wise!
