I Applogize for Never Finding Any Exotic Matter

May 3, 2017
Wall Street Pit: Sci-Fi Fans Rejoice! Time Travel Might Actually Be Possible

While the research suggests that it is mathematically possible to build a time machine, it’s not yet physically feasible. As Tippet said: “While is it mathematically feasible, it is not yet possible to build a space-time machine because we need materials—which we call exotic matter—to bend space-time in these impossible ways, but they have yet to be discovered.”

I will devote the rest of my life to finding exotic matter.

I'm sorry that I was unable to find any exotic matter at any point in the distant future. If I had found any, I would have insisted on traveling back in time to change this post and congratulate myself for my amazing discovery.

There is some good news though. Since I never found any exotic matter, I now see no point in devoting the rest of my life trying to find any. This frees up more time to just kick back and relax. Woohoo! ;)

This is getting old. So predictable. It's now a cliché. After wasting gobs of time and money, a couple of egg heads justify their folly by paying tribute to Saint Einstein.

Of course, the cynic in me would say that paying tribute to the religion of St. Einstein was the point all along!

I sure like your take on it though!

You are not rejoicing over this discovery? What??

It might actually be possible to bend space-time in impossible ways!

Just need to find some impossible-to-possible matter! How hard can that be?

And once we find this exptic matter, all things may become possible! I know this may sound like a stretch, but maybe, just maybe, it can be used to stop insurance companies from denying/delaying covered expensive medical procedures. One can dream!

Teenage boys used to find exotic matter and attempt to hide it from their parents. Or so I'm told; I've no experience of this sort of thing myself.

I'm totally down with space, time and matter. Exotic matter? Sounds like science porn to me. As for dark matter, warped space etc. that looks more like religion than science.

Look, I never fully believed the explanations for half the sh%t I was taught in physics and chemistry. Electricity is a one way flow of electrons? Really? And all the positively charged protons are grouped together in the "nukular" atom and held in place by yet another mystery force that is insanely strong? Say what?

At least Newton admitted he didn't know what he didn't know!

I do believe in unicorns though!

It definitely sounds like an urban legend if you ask me... in the presence of my family.

Science + Chart Porn, baby. That's what I'm talking about.

As a side note, I've never been certain of uncertainty principle theories. But hey, maybe that's by design.

Blasphemer! Shun the non-believer!

You either love your car very much or there's been a feline typo. ;)

Heisenberg is uncertain about that typo.
