Black Holes In My Backyard?

The Hadron collider will be smashing protons moving at 99.999999% of the speed of light into each other to recreate conditions existing a fraction of a second after the big bang. According to some theoretical models, tiny black holes could be produced in collisions at the LHC. They would then very quickly decay into what is known as Hawking radiation (the tinier the black hole, the faster it evaporates) which would be detected by experiments. But any physicist will tell you that there is no way to prove that generated black holes will decay!
