"A team of particle physicists wanted "to unveil the deepest secrets of the Universe—and of Swedish cuisine." So, naturally, they built a Swedish meatball collider.

The MEAL, or MEatball AcceLerator collaboration, could answer important questions such as why we're made of meatballs, rather than anti-meatballs, or whether we can create dark meatballs. The proof-of-concept experiment was a success…"

Great now we got something else to worry about.

So what are the chances that they will end up blowing up the world.

First they split the meatloaf into sub-meatloaf particles, ie meatballs, and now they want to collide those to find sub-sub-meatball particles. Where does it end? And are they using frozen meatballs?

I do like their Risk Mitigation Strategy. Everyone needs one of those.

As a Norwegian, I'm morally against anything to do with Swedish cuisine.
A Norwegian meatcake colider would have been much better.
