Will There Be Time to Panic?

Actual headline: Good news! Black hole won't destroy Earth

Well, that makes me feel better. No chance whatsoever of mad scientists destroying life as we know it.
But the chance of planetary annihilation by this means "is totally miniscule," experimental physicist Greg Landsberg at Brown University in Providence, R.I., told LiveScience.

I see.

If you'll excuse me, I have some panicking to do. Right after a fresh change of pants.

Okay, I do believe them when they say that the chance of destroying the Earth is very, very small. Still, why does it feel like they're trying?

Would you stupid physicists please stop trying to blow up the planet/collapse Earth into a quantum singularity?

They're telling you there's a miniscule chance, and you still don't listen.

Seriously, what are you doing in science?
