Ferris Beuller said, and I quote “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Never a truer word spoken in my humble opinion. With that in mind I share with you the following Microphotography and video link. Remember you saw it here first cereal fans!
A zombie themed movie shot by students at Cern’s Large Hadron Collider is now available to watch in full online.
The 75 minute film was directed and written by PhD physics student Luke Thompson and follows a group of students trapped underground at the world’s largest particle accelerator as malfunctioning equipment turns scientists into zombies.
Decay took two years to make and cost around $3,000 (£1,860), with the amateur crew borrowing digital SLR cameras for filming and sticking to areas other than the sensitive LHC tunnels themselves.
Enjoy the film! I have and can highly recommend it. Jolly good yarn it is too.

The 172nd birthday of Auguste Rodin, widely thought to be the father of modern sculpture, has been celebrated with a Google doodle.
French sculptor Auguste Rodin‘s birthday is being celebrated with a Google doodle today! Considered the father of modern sculpture, iconic masterpieces such as The Kiss and The Thinker are among his best known works. Rodin was born in Paris in 1840 and by the time he was 60 was a world-renowned artist.
Rodin possessed a unique ability to model a complex, turbulent, deeply pocketed surface in clay. Many of his most notable sculptures were roundly criticized during his lifetime, because they clashed with the predominant figure sculpture tradition, in which works were decorative, formulaic, or highly thematic.
The 19th century bohemian, who sculpted with amateur models and street performers, was oft compared to Michelangelo.
And he enjoyed a colourful life, marrying his lover of 50 years – Rose Beuret – in 1917, the year of his death. Doh, timing!
So next time you are visiting gay Paris, why not pop in to the Musée Rodin was founded in 1916 and holds the largest Rodin collection, with more than 6,000 sculptures and 7,000 works on paper. Plan your visit.
Happy 172 birthday August, oh and fantastic beard sir!
