You may remember a month ago when social news site Reddit first began their quest to stop the imminent headcrab infestation emanating from the Large Hadron Collider. Good news, the crowbar wrecking bar has now been shipped, along with a practice headcrab plushy and a Half-Life strategy guide.

For those not familiar with what is soon to be happening, the particle accelerator located at CERN, due to be fully active very shortly, could cause a resonance cascade. Which, if the variables are just right, might doom us all.

That is if we are not prepared for the worse. And that’s where Reddit comes in. They have now shipped the headcrab killing crowbar to CERN, along with the note “Get this to Gordon Freeman. He’ll know what to do.”

When we thanked them for their heroic work, Alexis from the Reddit All blog told us:

We’re not heroes. We’re just doing our job.

Thank you Reddit, all we can do now is hope it reaches Gordon in time.


  1. The greys are behind the LHC with the purpose of creating exotic matter.It’ll serve as an excuse for the trilateral commision and the masons to, at last, unleash all the tech they’ve been hiding in the last 30 years.
