Could machines really rise up and take control? If so, who would be the leader?

There seems to be a universal fascination with the idea of humanity becoming overrun by its own creations. But is it actually possible?

Let’s for a moment assume that the world does not end with antdroids, megalomaniac bears, self-destruction or cats and consider this.

Is it possible to use time travel to create an entire army of clones and take over the world?

For clarity of method, here’s the question in full:

After watching the documentary ‘Looper’ at the cinema recently it got me thinking…

When time travel is invented, if I was to transport myself 5 minutes back in time I would meet myself from 5 minutes ago. So there are now 2 Mes. If the Me from 5 minutes ago waited for 5 minutes like before, then transported himself back in time 5 minutes… There would now be 3 Mes.

So using this time cycle is it possible to create an whole army of 1000′s of Mes which I could use to take over the world?

Yes, this is possible. However, it’s not as fantastic an idea as it may seem at first. Let’s use some diagrams to wrap our heads around this.

Why is the top half of my cup of tea too hot but then the bottom half too cold? (Also, why does tea make people feel better?)

You’d think it would be the other way around, wouldn’t you? The top surface steaming away happily, losing all its heat to the air. The bottom half is insulated by your mug, which should mean the last bits are still warm by the time you get to them.

But no.

When will smoking become good for you again? Will I live to see it?

If you watch old movies or television shows everyone smoked and nobody thought anything of it. If they had a stressful experience, they smoked. If they wanted to look badass, they smoked. If a room needed atmosphere, everyone smoked. It was standard. So why the change?

I wish to become a 90′s style American high school kid. How can I achieve this?

You need to get in one little fight and scare your mum.

If you don’t happen to have rich relatives to move in with, then it’s actually easy – but your experience all depends on what high school you choose.

Firstly, let’s get your hair and outfit sorted.  It doesn’t really matter where you’re going yet, as you’ll fit in almost anywhere with the following:- Read the rest of this entry »

Who invented football? (Or soccer, if you’re not with the Empire.)

We British appear to have laid claim to football, taking it on as our national sport (even though we don’t appear to be very good.)  But was it actually invented by the British?

Actually, no.

It was invented by the Pope. Read the rest of this entry »
