Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the world yet?

I'm sure most people are aware of the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva. It's the largest particle collider in the world (until an even larger one is built), and has been predicted to do all sorts of things... not least of which is to drop the entire planet into a black hole. Many people are worried about whether or not such a thing is possible. The question is, should it happen, would you be told? After all, you might not have the radio or TV on at the right moment, to catch that vital news bulletin. Google may and may not have a chance to put a Google Doodle up. Your subscription to "End Of The World Weekly" might be delayed. How will you get immediate information?

Fortunately, there is an answer. A man named Michael Kania has published a web site which uses Javascript to determine the state of the world.

View that page, and view it often. Be the very first to know when the world disappears!
