User, a high-energy physicist, asking 'Where are my files?', gets kicked by the sysadmin into a proton-proton-collision-induced black hole which is engulfing the accelerator lab.

I drew this as a birthday card for a friend who is sysadmin — the person who looks after the main computers and answers questions about such things as the Internet and users' file storage — in a high-energy physics institution. He says the most common, and most annoying, question posed by his users, who are good scientists too single-minded about their research to think much about the computers, is "Where are my files?".
