I should not critize my home country but this was a masterpiece: We are apparently quitting CERN! Especially now that they build the LHC.
Well the upside is: When the black hole is created that swallows the whole world, we can say it was not our fault.
Edit: and the second upside is that they will have about 20 million extra euros that they can put into my stipend.
Edit2: We are not leaving CERN thanks to public pressure.
