These are pretty amazing for geeks like me, and some of the photography is pretty incredible too!

There are several pictures from CERN there.

Do you know why there have been no contacts from highly developed alien civilizations?

Simple answer: when a civilization gets to a certain level of technology, it invariably builds a Large Hadron Collider...

That illustrates the diversity of mankind. I find all of that stuff both incredibly clever and absolutely of no personal interest to me.

It's the same with digital photography. I accept it's there, know there are no real alternatives to the computer today and so, in the attempt to keep on clicking, I muddle through as best I can. But the heart's kicked out of me; the visceral bit's gone. In a way, it's rap vs jazz. I do because of the lack of alternative pastimes, but mostly all the love has gone into the memory banks.
