 This is when the collider will create said black hole and swallow us all.  They are even making a movie about it.

I dont know about anyone else who is up on the significance of that date on the Mayan calander, but I plan on having plenty of booze on hand so I can feel cheery when nothing actually happens and everyone worried for nothing.

oh come on! Its obvious whats really going on: The results of the data from the collider eventually leads to technological innovations the cause the end of the world, and people from the future have come back in time to sabotage the collider in an annoying attempt to save us all. Yeah, how about it, lets start that conversation.

The collider is supposed to accellerate millions of positive particles in one direction while also accellerating negative particles in an opposite direction faster and faster with each lap. The particles will accellerate to as close to the speed of light as possible and then the particles will be made to collide. This will cause an explosion of sorts as particles spit apart from the collision. There is a remote possibility that a gravitational singularity aka a black hole will appear and suck in and crunch up the planet and eventually the solar system as it grows more and more powerful as it consumes matter. This is only a remote possibility. It's more likely that the particles will just smash against each other and break appart and there are detectors designed to detect most if not all the possible particles and a special sensor that will hopefully dectect gravitons (gravity quantified as the smallest single particle of gravity. They hope that some of the gravity will disappear and prove the exsistence of extra dimmensions besides the 4 we know about now (3physical spacial dimensions and 1 of time) I think it's bunk because gravity is the effect that a body of mass has on the surface of space time. Space time is displaced by bodies of mass (aka planets, stars, astroids and the like) and the ripple around the body in space time is gravity. I can go on and on.... You would probably never guess I'm HighSchool drop out...

why does gravity affect space-time?

Gravity is the effect matter has on the surface of space-time as matter displaces space-time much like a ship displaces water.

It is also a shame that you have no idea what you are talking about.

yeah.. I still don't see how it's supposed to destroy the world lol

But wow that is extremely unfortunate!  Someone is going to be taking some heat for that "little" mistake!
