Not Two Phrases I Want to Hear Together

I missed this story, which is now a week old, but I'm pretty sure that two phrases I do not like hearing together are "Al-Qa‘ida in the Islamic Maghreb" and "Large Hadron Collider."

Or this:
The suspect had been working on the LHC Beauty (LHCb) experiment, which is investigating the slight differences between matter and anti-matter by studying a type of particle called the "beauty quark".
Don't you just love it when they play with matter and anti-matter?

On that note, enjoy the weekend,
