You’re just waiting for me to misspell it

The Large Hadron Collider (don’t misspell it like the New York Times did) is due to be switched on in July; when it’s switched on, it’ll become the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, and will help us to answer plenty of interesting questions about the fundamental nature of matter.

Some people are concerned that the LHC may be able to create a miniature black hole that would engulf the earth, or a blob of “strange matter” that would turn the entire universe into a gooey mess of subatomic particles. If this happened, you might not have access to your investments and your savings.

Is your investment portfolio adequately protected against the end of the world?
