Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for May 28, 2015
Every time a child says I don't believe in fairies, there's a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead. Wait, really? You say it and instantaneously millions of miles away, a fairy dies? Horrible, isn't it? This is huge. Soon... Newznet________ 12-year-old overturns Einstein's physics Proposes fairy- killing as method of superluminal communication
I could just see fairy clones manufactured expressly for that purpose. The technicians all along the way, and the people using this form of communication would have to hold a kind of double-think to have this work.If just once they verbally express real belief, would whole communication systems be shut down? Sounds like tricky business to me, and subject to sabotage by fairy-rights groups. Would pixies, elves, and other so-called fantasy creatures also be subject to enslavement and abuse..Yes, it’s a slow day so far. And I’m not serious..But I’ve often wondered: Say an enormously strong string could be stretched tautly a light year in length one end fasted here, the other to somewhere out there. Would a tug on this end instantly register as a pull on the other end? It’s a thought experiment, so temporarily disregard the tensile strength of the string and obvious sag of the accumulated weight and so on. .This might be laughable idea long disproven, so forgive my ignorance. But would some force, quantum in nature, be analogic to the above string and overcome the limit of lightspeed?
