I found an interesting site the other day that explains the possible risks involved with super colliders producing miniature black holes (if Stephen Hawking radiation is wrong of course)

http://www.risk-evaluation-forum.org/

I was wondering if this is a lot of BS, and if not, what is the necessary energy to have two colliding particles produce an actual black hole, and what amount would it take to produce one that could be stable for say, a few seconds. Also, any information about actual debates on this topic would be greatly appreciated. (this website I found clearly states that they have taken place regarding new, more powerful super colliders in the past)

Fellow nerd,

Josh Vizanko

PS: This is what part of the alphabet would look like if you removed Q and R.
