Back in September Shacknews 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.

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.
