      I found it really weird that our huge particle physics machine, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), was stopped when a stray weasel caused a short circuit! This machine is 100m underground and humans have to go through top security to get in! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36173247

      Nothing that weird so far I’m afraid. I have had a lot of simulations and SPECT scan data that doesn’t behave how I expected it to.
