Is the Large Hadron Collider cursed?

Does anyone believe it was ever going to work in the first place? What if it was all a ruse? They made all these huge claims about what the HC can do, but they had no clue how to make it work, or (of course) what would happen once it did. SO repairs...sound like excuses. It's not going to work. It's an abomination, as awesome a machine (concept?) as it is. It's outcome is unknowable, and that makes it bad mojo.

Decisions will be taken as to whether there are more that need repairing or not within the next couple of weeks, and when we know that, we will be in a position to be a little bit more definitive about what we plan to do for the rest of the year... Essentially what's happening is we're proceeding with extreme caution. We have to be absolutely certain that when we switch on this time, it stays switched on.

The 37 mil in repairs should go to building/designing a better freakin' space shuttle!

The innumerable amount of "time," "energy," and whatever to have the universe (IT). Must have been like child's play I guess.
