The Future

The future... it's here!

Teleportation has been achieved!

A team of quantum scientists at the University of Maryland have been able to teleport something about a meter in distance!

Okay, well it's only "quantum information", but that means they can recreate an object in a new location. But that is what the Star Trek transporters do. They break down an object or person, send the matter stream to that new location, and rebuild it there using the object's (or person's) "blueprints", or "quantum information".

Okay, it was only a particle. But once you have one particle, you can have two! So it's still a BIG step.

Okay... it's only accurate about 90% of the time. Yes, I'd hate to be in that 10% where my arms are where my legs were, and/or vice versa... but still. You have to admit 90% is still great!

Star Trek... here we come!

Benediction excerpt

I had heard it before, but I loved it when I heard these words spoken by Joseph Lowery (used previously in other speeches)

" us work for that day when black will not be asked to give back, when brown can stick around, when yellow will be mellow, when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy, say Amen. Say Amen"

Pet Peeve #3

Watching TRYING to watch TV while someone talks and asks questions non-stop.

"Who's that? Why did he do that? You know that other show that guy is in? The one with the money? You don't know the show? You know the show. Remember? With the money. And the guy falls? It was on like a year ago. What's the name of that show? Oh, what's that girl's name? She's on that other show now. How can you not know her name? For real? You don't know her name? Are they doing a new show? I thought you knew. I remember you saying something about a new show. How can you not remember? You told me the other day. Oh, maybe that was someone else. Oh yeah, it was someone else. And it was about another show. On a different channel. Damn, I'm like retarded. Hey, wasn't that guy on the show last season? Oh wait, we're watching reruns. But it's a good show, right?"
