Moving on
To pump fresh water, I guess.

Yes, it was around 731 million in 2005.

All hail
If it's physically possible, we'll do it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow... but someday!

Ok, so... the next day?

So, in the U.S., randomly stripping is a signal that you want to sing the national anthem? - That Human
Sorry, I meant to say sunday, not someday. The FTL drive will be ready then.

Did you know this section has a character limit?
No, we should go to Europa to rescue the Nostalgia Critic!
They do have medals for almost, and they're called silver!

Ooh, I think I heard about this. :o The problem is how? :p It's sorta like trying to figure out how to make an actual wormhole.

Obviously we just have to wait for Discovery to find Prothean ruins on Mars.

We don't need no wimpy precursor technology, we'll invent the stuff ourselves. Only loser species need to reverse engineer someone else's ancient FTL tech.

Is that cake frosting?
It's way too early to tell. And if I am not mistaken, the "Alcubierre Drive" mode of FTL travel that the article discusses has long been known. The thing is that it would require truly insane amounts of energy, and some sort of exotic matter.

Maybe something along these lines will eventually be made feasible; but I wouldn't bet on that happening anytime soon.

But they seem to
know where they are going, the ones who walk away from Omelas.

According to the new calculations, a lot less than a solar mass' worth of energy. More than we can currently do with any single device but nowhere near as insanely much as was previously calculated.

We have no regard for your foolish laws of conservation of energy! The warp drive shall be powered by antimatter explosions, even though it doesn't annihilate explosively!

Well not in the conventional sense of explosion...

Can't move fast through space, so we cheat by moving space through space?

Yo Dawg..
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
