CERN's Freeman Picks Up Crowbar from Gamers, Begins Saving the World

Back in September we reported on the sighting of a rather suspicious-looking scientist at CERN, the site of the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator, which was then in preparation for its historic first test. In the test chamber.

Sensing imminent invasion, alarmed gamers at Reddit took the initiative, mailing CERN a wrecking bar, headcrab hat and Half-Life strategy guide. The Freeman doppelganger recently found his pickups, and proceeded to defend the facility from alien forces, evidence of which (above, right) was passed along today.

We await the inevitable news that our Freeman has abandoned the world to alien rule after giving up halfway through the Xen level.

    I've always wanted a baby gargantua for a pet...

    Maybe I'll get the chance soon.
