It's more than 50% likely that this guys a fool.

Via The Bad Astronomer and Mark C. Chu-Carroll comes what is probably the most probability-challenged statement of the year.

This is from the Daily Show and is pretty interesting until Wagner makes his mind-blowingly stupid remark.

But then, the guy sued in a Honolulu court to stop the collider, which isn't even in this country, so his lawsuit has a 50-50 change of going his way -- either he'll win or he won't, right?
