LHC Suicide

Chayya Lal, a 16-year-old Indian girl from the state of Madhya Pradesh, committed suicide this week, reportedly because she feared the activation of the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland would cause the end of the world. It's not completely clear that this was the cause of her suicide, though her parents say she was terrified about the LHC in the days before it was switched on. If she did kill herself because of the idiotic claims of those who spread baseless paranoia about the LHC, I have a short message for those people. Go fuck yourselves. More details here.
