Hands off my CPU cycles you evil Eurotrash! Everyone knows god created the universe, dark matter is heaven, and elementary particles are tiny little angels. :)

10's of Billions of dollars to build it, and they still would like my CPU cycles to help process the data.

I am all for science but you would think someone would have budgeted a couple of mainframes in there / super computers to assist with the process.  Plus maybe they should only leave it on for a minute at full power.    Thats only 234 GB.  Ahh Toys Toys Toys..

I think my spare computing cycles will go to projects that don't have that grandeous of a budget.  IE: folding@home, SETI@home, those sort of projects.

So you would rather "Fold" instead of helping with the LHC? When has any folding found cures?

Folding is finding cures all the time, what has the LHC done so far other than break down?   No higgs boson, no god particle, no wai!

My distributed computing folding time already goes to Rosetta@home, the lesser known cousin of Folding@home.

I believe that they will discover that everything is made up of Tiny Toilets. Everything is based on the toilet. Toilets not Strings. Toilets flushing on the surface of space time at different frequencies produce different atomic particles that make up everything..

That's just my belief and I'm standing by it. I believe everyone will know the truth soon.
