Dunno about others, but the idea of a large, phallic object being referred to as the Large Hardon Collider still has me hiding under the blanket, whimping in fear.

Stop saying 'script'. Stop saying 'line-noise'.
We have nothing to lose but our metaphors.

      No, most of them do. It seems that just the phallic objects that you have encountered don't resemble doughnoughts :P
