The Daily Show on the Large Hadron Collider

The Daily Show did a great bit on the LHC last night with John Oliver.  And, yes, they interview the guy that is suing to shut it down.  It’s amazing that after all the media coverage he got it took the daily show to ask the question:

WW: “It’s a chance, it’s a 50/50 chance.”

JO: “You keep coming back to this 50/50 chance, it’s weird Walter.”

WW: “If you have something that can happen, and something that won’t necessarily happen, it’s either going to happen or not happen.  And… so… best guess it’s 1 in 2”

JO: “… I’m not sure that’s how probability works Walter.”
