The Realm of Awesome Questions

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest particle accelerator and the machine named "most likely to create a black hole just below the surface of the Earth, devouring our planet and all mankind." The LHC accelerates particles (protons, if you must know) in opposite directions at nearly the speed of light, in order to simulate the conditions in the universe around the time of the notorious Big Bang.

Heretofore, the results of these collisions have been the scientific documentation of fomerly theoretical "dark matter," a sort of counterpart to the matter we see and touch every day, and total confirmation that the badly drunk person waving a sock full of billiard balls over his head and screaming about taxes at the bar the other night was not me, but my dark matter twin.

The real question, however, the One and Only Awesome question, the Question from the Realm of Awesome Questions, is what would happen if you stuck your hand in there? Please watch the first four minutes of the video to find out.
