From the "these idiots" link:
"...said Prof Brian Cox of Manchester University, adding: 'Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a t---.'"

Now I realize this is a British newspaper but I'm trying to imagine what vulgarity that starts with t was so bad that they couldn't spell it out. The only word I came up with was twit which my dictionary says is a British-ism for idiot. In any case, if we poof ourselves out of existence we'll never know it.
