Week 7: 3/17/2015 - 9pm PDT 3/24/2015

Ladies and gentlemen, start your captions!

What do you think is going on in this image from CERN's archives?

Link to the original CERN image.

CERN scientists and engineers often find themselves in interesting positions. However, we're not sure if this CERN staffer ever expected to be quite where he is now!

Add your humorous caption as a comment to this project log. Make sure you're commenting on this project log, not on the project itself.

As always, if you actually have information about the image or the people in it, let CERN know on the original image discussion page.

Good Luck!

Alice and Eve had no idea that Bob had breached physical of their high security toilet cubicles.

Here at CERN, we play hide-and-seek a little differently.

Little known fact:  Due to EPA regulations, any wildlife displaced during construction by CERN, has to be provided with an alternative habitat.  Here a SPCA volunteer inspects the new homes for four ground hogs , he suggested that elevators be installed as that groundhogs have short legs.

Hazing the new guy by making him hunt for snipe-quarks.

Before the LHC, hunting for the Higgs was much less glamorous.

As he had only one PhD, Bob had to work his way up from the bottom at CERN by starting in waste processing.

As scientists are still looking for the Higgs boson, the boson itself looks on curiously at one of said scientist, wondering what the scientist could possibly find by looking at "four holes".

Giuseppe was slowly learning the correct process for measuring stray particle content  in the collider exhaust.  Keep your steel rod at hand for fending off mutated hyper-rats.  Replace your work shoes with sandals, because those boson puddles are invisible and very sticky.  Use boards to insulate your feet from the static buildup from high velocity particle strikes.  But today's lesson would be the most important of all.  Never, EVER, place your scinitillating particle detection integrating counter where, in order to make a reading, you have to put your head under the vent hole with those indigo dribble marks issuing from it.

The earthworm study concluded rock-and-roll preferred 2:1 over rap or country music.

Having watched the "tremors" movie marathon over the weekend, John takes no chances risking "possible detection"- just in case...

  Are you sure? yes | no

I don't understand why I'm not getting any readin... oh it's not on. No, wait, the switch is on, but no readings. Ok... Flip it off, flip it on.... Still no readings. It's hooked up right, I just double checked the connections. My design is good - what the heck. Oh, its not plugged in. Now I see why power lights are not actually useless. Jerry is totally going to pull the "I told you so" card on this. Well Jerry doesn't have to know. Just like he doesn't have to know I'm wearing sandals. Screw Jerry. It's so quiet and lonely out here.

Here we have a Cern Scientest  inspecting the Emergency Intelligence Incinerator chutes after the explosion of Aperture Science.

Next we will visit Dr. John F. Zoidberg, though I must warn you he is a little unusual, he wears sandles.

Inserting a large piezoelectric speaker into his Wall of Sound, Larry provides much needed "tunes" for CERN's Friday BBQ .

Are Socks and Sandals acceptable safety equipment for the Demolition Pit? Yes, because these are Kelvar socks and Zylon sandals being testing.  Quite uncomfortable, but these feet will survive a close proximity blast.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Was the combination 1,3,4,2 or was it 3,2,4,1......I had this secret door opened once!

By running all of the exhaust chambers at once, we've created the world's largest flute.

After budget cuts the remaining CERN staff were asked to take on additional responsibilities. Here we see senior scientist Dr. Frank Close inspecting the septic system.
