Boring Science: Scientists Transport Light and Matter

October 5, 2006

Scientists at the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University in Denmark have successfully teleported light and matter a distance of half a meter. This is the first time scientists have been able to teleport both light and matter, and at a distance of more than a few millimeters.

I don’t understand most of the rest of the words in the article — it seems like the science people are trying to say that this does not mean you will be able to teleport yourself to Paris Fashion Week by next year, but since they’re really good at science, they’re consequently not so good at talking to other humans. So…Champs Elysee 2007!!! In our TELEPORTERS!!!!

Heidi Klum is Ridiculously Hot

August 24, 2006

Also, as of this morning, Pluto is no longer a planet. A bunch of scientists who are way smarter than you are took a week off from pursuing passing fancies like curing cancer to bicker red-facedly in Prague over this matter. From Yahoo news:

Although astronomers applauded after the vote, Jocelyn Bell Burnell — a specialist in neutron stars from Northern Ireland who oversaw the proceedings — urged those who might be “quite disappointed” to look on the bright side. “It could be argued that we are creating an umbrella called ‘planet’ under which the dwarf planets exist,” she said, drawing laughter by waving a stuffed Pluto of Walt Disney fame beneath a real umbrella.

AHHHH HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Ha ha ha ha!!! HA Ha. Ha. Haa!!

Ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha!



Hang on let me catch my breath.

My God Heidi Klum is hot.
