  1. A geek's dream 🙂 I had no idea that WWW originated in Cern. I thought it grew out of ARPANET at MIT.

    Back to the original topic, I love the photos!


  2. – Apocalypse & post-nuclear. … No Blade of Grass 1970

    No movie affected me more than this movie. Since then, I am very worried about nuclear energy. I chose to live in New Zealand which is nuclear free.

    Have you watched this movie?


  3. Sorry if I was harsh on my last comment. You may like to delete it. Another movie that impact me is Mad Max. I don't watch any sports that is power consuming.


  4. They have tours? That is so cool! If my parents were still alive, they would have loved this! And I love the architecture of that globe-like building, whatever it is. Funky!


  5. I always wanted to visit this place. Lucky you!!!

    PS: We also saw cows on the Amazon in bigger boats, but I didn't get pictures of them. Only sheep and goats!


  6. «AB» is not quite so surprised that Luxembourg is not part of the project. Until 2003, it did not even have a University.
