    It's okay. I have spent countless hours reading and watching TV programs about all this. I've been studying astronomy for fun since I was 7.

    Teleportation could actually happen, though I think it would be exponentially more difficult the bigger an object is. I think string theory jives with teleportation. I would have to go refresh my memory on certain aspects of string theory to see if this could actually work. I have work in an hour, so I will do this when I get home.

    I have heard weird stories about the Triangle. My dad was in the Navy and had a weird story. Methane deposits could be one explanation for the sinking of ships and instrument failure over this area, but it may not be the whole story.
    This one war vet in my store said that one experiment where they tried to teleport a ship ended with the men on board melded into the metal.
    I won't just call him a liar, though that is hard to believe.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    I find that exceedingly difficult to believe. Why would they put men on board a ship that they intended to teleport to Allah-knows-where?

    Do you think that teleportation could be commercialized? Y'know, like stepping into your new ElectronBuster 3500 Teleporter Deluxe Version and getting to work almost before you pressed the button? That would damn awsome.

    I find it hard to believe, too, but he really sounded like he believed it, haha. I just wanted to mention it to you.

    I think teleportation would be far too risky, with chances of mutations or incomplete transfer to ever be commercialized, if we even found a way.

    Oh yeah.
    So I could show up at work with just a head and disembodied arms. That would scare some fuckas!
    Why would incomplete transfer occur? Is it just a matter of not knowing what part are the human and what parts aren't? Or would beards and arms get lost along the way? Could they be retrieved?

    If the teleportation device malfunctions or if the coordinates for some parts of the body deviate during the teleportation process, or even if the device doesn't lock on to 100% of the person's body, then a disaster occurs. Maybe a liver or heart or eyeball gets left behind. I mean, there are a number of minute things that could go wrong and end in disaster. I think if we could find a way, teleporting objects would be the way to commercialize the process, not using it on living things.

    Evolution anyone? Quasars, neutron stars, pulsars, black holes or the Khyper belt?
    I'd even be willing to talk about the morbid side of science, like the decomposition of a corpse, what caused the KT extinction (more than just the dinosaurs,) what it would be like with no ozone layer or magnetic feild, and the different ways the universe could end, if those are the things people are into.

    Thanks, Jojan! I'm gonna watch that right now.

    Edit: What a fascinating video! More people should watch this, they could learn a lot. I didn't learn much that I didn't already know, other than what certain equations are used for and the numerical values of some of the things he explained. Thanks for sharing, Jojan. Have any more like this?
    This guy's brilliant and he's pretty funny for a nerd.

    I'e happy to talk about evolution. Do you believe that we evolved from monkeys? Or divine intervention? Or were we, as I believe, genetically mutated on purpose by a higher power to make us a dominant species? You see, if we evolved from monkeys, then the theory has some holes. Let me explain. Monkeys have fur, but why don't we? If we evolved from monkeys, then how come we must wear fur to be warm? Wouldn't we have kept fur, since it is needed. Of course, I look at my relatives and say, "Oh, humans still have fur," but in all seriousness, why? Perhaps we were given no fur in order to foster thought. A person who is cold would improvise to get warm. No other creature does that. I would say that this was set up, because there is no logical explanation as to why we would be furless otherwise.

    Lawrence Krauss also had a pretty interesting discussion with Richard Dawkins probably on the same topic (based on the titles, haven't watched Jojan's vid yet).

    Also, on the subject of evolution, I think this explains it best:
