Large Hadron Collider T-Shirt Demands a Flat Stomach

This Large Hadron Collider t-shirt features “the six major components of the LHC printed in off-white around the bottom” with the full text listed after the break.

Text on the shirt (clockwise from the wearer’s left hip):

  • LHCb
    Large Hadron Collider beauty

    A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS
    Detects the broadest possible range of signals.
    Mmm. Magnetic doughnut.
  • LCHf

    Analyzes the energy and number of neutral pions produced.
    Cosmic rays! Pew pew pew!

All the info listed on the shirt is great, but I mean lets be honest, we all know about the problems this thing has experienced in the past, and until the Troubled Rebel Princess (aka Randy Marsh) returns that particle accelerator magnet the Large Hadron will be nothing but scrap metal.
