Just A Precaution

According to the UK Press Association, a group from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland is going to try to create something analogous to a black hole using laser pulses, without actually creating a black hole. I'm not even going to begin to pretend I know the first thing about how this is supposed to work.

But just in case, I think we should all take a moment to go over this instructional piece on how to escape a black hole. Remember to make sure you're stocked up on canned goods and water, stay away from windows, and don't open the cellar door until you know the coast is clear and the black hole has passed. Unless I'm thinking about tornadoes.
