    Is this for real?

    I did a search on one of the scientists, and he came out with a paper with lots of impressive looking equations and so maybe it would work. Or maybe he is sitting there in Germany chuckling "suckers"! and spending it all on hookers, beer and World Cup tickets.

    I think we would have a "Day the Earth Stood Still" event if we ever got hyperspace tech. I am sure the others in the Universe don't want us running around out there just yet. :)

    If true, maybe this means I finally have the chance to score me some sweet alien poontang.

    Wherever Zeffram Cochran's base is! He will teach them to shake hands while they teach him the Vulcan sign...

    I need to stop admitting to knowing Star Trek crap! This is the lowest of the low...

    Well, as far as I'm aware, The Scotsman is a fairly straight paper - it's not got a reputation of being the Weekly World News or anything like that.

    IF...
    "The hypothetical device, which has been outlined in principle but is based on a controversial theory about the fabric of the universe"
    Cold Fusion has been outlined in principle many times... But yes, if true it will be rather amazing.

    Theoretical is... theoretical.

    How the hell are we going to get the energy required to make the kind of magnetic field this would take?

    Energizers aren't gonna cut it.

    Maybe if we could harness the power of Entropy's horniness... that might do it.

    Cut me some slack coach, I've been trying to put a hundred thousand shards of metal back together in a non-Air conditioned hangar for weeks now just to find out something I already knew.
