What'd be most interesting, though, is if the world ends because of the LHC before the experiment that ends it is run... at these energy levels, an experiment could theoretically cause phenomena in the past.
These collisions are happening all the time, this is just the first we've controlled and can analyse.

There isn't going to be black hole.
