Obama Auction: End of the World

I have been hopping up and down, wagging my finger, trying to warn the world of the immanent danger we face from the wildly unpredictable experiments about to be played out with the large Hadron collider at CERN in Switzerland.

I, however, was not the first.

Not by a long shot.

Many have come before, warning of the danger that can only come from playing God. Dan Brown, for instance, before he took a crack and cracking the DaVinci Code, wrote of the struggle between the church and science, and the consequences that come from smashing atoms.

Evelyn has donated her audio book version of Dan Brown's best seller: Angels and Demons.



I've read it, and I enjoyed it. I mean, it's not Dostoyevsky, but it is quasi-cerebral well-paced fun. PLUS, it is conveniently provided on CD, to make it easier to listen in the car...

This auction is open until Monday night, 11:00 PM (PST)

Bid Now! They will be cranking up the collider soon, and there may not be much time left to enjoy it!

    C'mon, admit it, you enjoyed the DaVinci Code... This one is actually better than that one!

  5. We have a winner! FRED wins the auction and takes home the Audio Book!

    Hopefully, we will not all be killed by an errant black hole before you have a chance to finish it!
