Week 19: 6/10/2015 - 9pm PDT 6/17/2015

Just about every workplace has to worry about safety. Many companies have a safety team that is trained to handle emergencies and help patients until proper medical technicians arrive. In a typical office environment this training is pretty easy, but what if you're working on the bleeding edge of science? CERN's safety team trains for everything, including badly burned hands and partially removed eyeballs. Don't worry, these are just simulated injuries, which is probably why this CERN scientist is so calm, even smiling for the photo! CERN's medical room also appears to be well stocked - with a full skeleton, and no less than four different types of fire extinguishers.

So, even though we already have a pretty good idea of what is going on in this photo (and the accompanying album), we're sure you'll come up with some great captions. Have at it!

This week's prize is a Lightblue Bean from The Hackaday Store.

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

In the early days it was known as 'Rock, Paper, Scissors, Eye Gouge'.

CERN's "cybernetic captain kangaroo" children's TV series never made more than a pilot: it was too ahead of it's time.

Jim came in to complain about the laser departments hoarding of fire extinguishes. Naturally, they reacted badly.

They told Bill to "look into problems with the ring accelerator". Bill is a literal kinda guy.

And this is how Doug noticed that looking directly inside the particle accelerator gave you pain resistance super powers..... but no damage resistance at all.

Carl learnt his lesson of not to have sloppy wiring in his retina scanner prototype that day as his eyeball was caught while testing the scanner.

Dear Atreides younglings, you can see how to properly apply a sandworm on the hand and how wrong is to apply one on the eye.

This one is eating my eye, Boris, you empty waterbag, you said they're fake!
