LHC became a giant TV transmitter for a day

Scientists working on the Large Hardon collider got a surprise when their machine created a wormhole that allowed a full days worth of the television channel Dave to come through.

"We were very shocked," said Hardon engineer, Ben Downes. "Our TV suddenly stopped broadcasting Dave from 2010, and started showing Dave from 2372, over three hundred years from now."

Experiments looking for the Higgs Boson and Dark Matter were suspended as scientists all tuned in to the Future channel, hoping for a glimpse of some Earth shattering scientific breakthrough.

"My previous favourite Freeview channel had been Yesterday," said Downes. "This was like the opposite, and one wit named it the Tomorrow channel, hahahahahaha. Ha."

There was a moment of excitement when Dave Tomorrow showed what to them was an old episode of Horizon, but the Horizon show was all about how a day's worth of Dave was broadcast through a wormhole at the Large Hardon Collider.

"For the most part," said Downes, a little sadly, with words that would echo through time into the future Horizon program, "It was just re-runs of Top Gear."

And worse news was yet to come.

"We didn't even get to learn any magnificent technological advances from the automotive show," said Downes. "I'd seen all of the episodes they showed."

Downes did brighten up at one point though. "We did get to watch an episode of QI where they were doing the letter T. It was called Toilet Rolls and Time Travel."

Make IainB's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
