Mike Stoor, CERN visit manager, weights the Gnome in the Control Room of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) near Geneva April 5, 2012. A German precision scales maker sends this gnome statuette to different scientific institutions around the world to demonstrate that due to the gravity and that the Earth is not a perfect sphere the gnome weight is different around the world. The gnome statuette weighted 307.65 g (10.8520 oz). REUTERS/Denis Balibouse (SWITZERLAND - Tags: SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY SOCIETY)
