The Halopocalypse is upon us
Posted on Thursday, September 18 @ 14:13:13 Eastern by Blake_MorseStock up on sticky grenades and put on that custom Master Chief helmet you got off some cosplay site, the Flood is a comin'. Telegraph.co.uk is reporting today that the Royal Society of Chemistry in London has renamed the Large Hedron Collider, "Halo".
"Halo conjures visions of radiant beauty, power and wisdom. The circle of light reflects the collider's form; it is a crowning achievement of science and engineering. It also gives more than a nod to the experiment's importance to religious debate."
Yeah, right. I'm sure that's why they picked Halo. Not because they're some doomsday cult preparing to rain down aliens upon the unsuspecting populous of the world. You want further proof they're out to get us? Check this out.
"Several other entries to the competition proved popular. Colliderscope garnered many votes, along with Black Mesa, the name of an ill-fated research facility in the game franchise Half-Life."
I don't know which is worse, the thought of being exploded by a bunch of tiny purple needles shot from a laser or being turned into a crab zombie. I guess that we may be stuck with the first option now.
As citizens of the world we must be prepared for the coming onslaught. After all, who's better prepared to fight the Flood than gamers? We know their tactics and their weaknesses. I bet the crew over at Bungie has already been recruited by a secret Military think tank to conjure up ways to defeat them.
