Physicist says you can time travel all you want, but the universe won't let you change things

Physicist says you can time travel all you want, but the universe won't let you change things

A physics student at the University of Queensland recently published a paper indicating they’d ‘squared’ the math when it comes to time-travel. Not only should it theoretically be possible to travel back in time, according to the numbers, but you could do whatever you want without making any fundamental changes to the present.In other words: the ‘‘ may not be real.The problem : your eccentric old scientist buddy turns a DeLorean into a time machine. Before he can teach you how to use it properly, he’s murdered by terrorists. While fleeing the scene in said DeLorean you accidentally travel...

It's time for a sequel to The Social Network and Quentin Tarantino should direct it

It's time for a sequel to The Social Network and Quentin Tarantino should direct it

Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino revealed in that he believes The Social Network is the best film of its decade. He’s wrong.  is the best film of the 2010s.Space Boobs is a perfect film, it told the whole story. , on the other hand, has plenty of room for improvement (2010? Ha, those were the innocent days for social media). That’s why I think it’s time for a sequel. And since Tarantino’s such a biiiig fan, he should direct.Don’t get me wrong, David Fincher is a legend (he brought us Se7en, ’nuff said) but I think the next chapter in the Facebook saga calls for a level of character...

Human-centric AI news and analysisMIT recently trained a machine learning model to accurately predict the spread of COVID-19. According to the AI, we should be seeing a plateau where the amount of new cases begins to level off in the US and Italy in the next week. This good news, however, comes with a dire warning: relaxing quarantine measures too soon will be catastrophic.The engineers behind the AI explain the results as being very similar to the situation that happened where quarantine and social distancing efforts managed to almost completely flatten the curve before an ill-advised...

RIP net neutrality: Ajit Pai's 'fuck you' to the American people becomes official

Former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai today stands victorious. His tireless efforts to deny the will of an overwhelming majority of American citizens have come to fruition: net neutrality protections are today officially eliminated.Our democracy was born from the forges of war and watered with the blood of patriots. For more than 200 years our politicians have stood as the vanguard and creators of the policies that govern our freedom, while brave men and women have taken up arms in defense of our nation. But today, our democratic principles were packaged and delivered, in a gilded basket, to...
