Girl Commits Suicide Over LHC Doomsday Predictions

Illustration for article titled Girl Commits Suicide Over LHC Doomsday Predictions

Despite repeated assurances by experts that the Large Hadron Collider would not bring about the end of the world, it appears that one 16-year-old girl in central India decided to commit suicide by drinking pesticide rather than face that remote possibility. Her father noted that several Indian programs aired doomsday predictions in the days leading up to the test run, which left her inconsolable. As tragic as this is, I can't help but wonder why someone would rather go out by drinking pesticide than being painlessly vaporized. [ via Uberreview]
