Earlier this week the triumphant powering-up of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider after a lengthy but deserved sabbatical was cut short when, reported, a small weasel-like animal (a marten oder Marder ou fouine) sabotaged the whole operation. These creatures are infamous for sneaking under the hoods of cars and gnawing on wires, but this poor luddite apparently not in favour of Man unlocking the secrets of the Universe did not survive, zapped out of existence and is now an anti-Marder.
