Sci/Tech What Happens When You Stick Your Head Into a Particle Accelerator

Today I found out what happens when you stick your head into a particle accelerator.

Exhibit A: Anatoli Petrovich Bugorski, a Russian scientist who has the distinction of being the only person to ever stick his head in a running particle accelerator. Shockingly, he also managed to survive the ordeal and, all things considered, came out without too much damage.

Bugorski was a researcher at the Institute for High Energy Physics in Protvino, working with the Soviet particle accelerator: The Synchrotron U-70.

On July 13, 1978, Bugorski was checking a malfunctioning piece of equipment. As he was leaning over the piece of equipment, he stuck his head through the part of the accelerator that the proton beam was running through. He reported seeing a flash that was “brighter than a thousand suns”, but did not feel any pain when this happened.

So many apples
What's your dick Name?
Supermassive cumbeast. Just a normal name for heavy weaponry, really.

EDIT: LHC must be linked to dick, as that is all we're talking about here now >_> The secret of the Universe lies probably between thy legs, lol.
camelCase smashing holes as usual I see.

Swim, fishies. Swim through the veil of steel.
The most bizarre side effect that occurred because of this has to do with his face. Looking at Bugorski now, you’d see the right half of his face looks like a normal wrinkled old man, but the left half of his face looks as if it was frozen in time 19 years ago. Apparently Botox’s got nothing on a particle accelerator’s proton beam for stopping wrinkles.
How did nobody pick up on this? Stand in the thing for half a second and you never grow old again.

You can change this now in User CP.

His face didn't wrinkle because it's been paralyzed for the past 20 years - your face wouldn't wrinkle much either if you never moved it.

  • jonas jonas:
    FAANG?
  • Jesus4Lyf Jesus4Lyf:

  • jonas jonas:
    makes sense. Do we have a hobby game dev subforum to showcase some work?

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
