You can't travel at the speed of light, but there's nothing that says you can't bypass it. Everything from warp bubbles to folding space to string theory and quantum entanglement are just the beginning. I believe it's fully possible. Simply that man won't survive long enough to get there.
It might be possible, unfortunately even if it is possible it is extremely unlikely it will be discovered in our lifetimes. Which is definitely the single largest disappointment of my life. As to whether we'll survive long enough as a species to reach that point, is certainly debatable. Personally, even though I won't live to see it, I like to hope we can make it.

Always nice when the government actually gets something right... Net Neutrality ruling.

Glad to hear all is well, Blue.

The short answer is no one knows, and that it would probably have complex and far reaching effects, some good and probably mostly bad...
Thank you for a well written, reasonable response -- they are so rare in this subject...

...but hey it's not even that big of deal to me. It's the cost of a cab ride to my house and from my house drinking with my friends.
Wow, I take it that's a long cab ride....

As they say "the book is better than the movie".
The lone exception I am aware of is The Destroyer movie, ie.. "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins" I only read the first couple of books after seeing the movie. Later I talked with someone who had read them all and agreed the books were lousy.

We probably dont need another Galactica.
Yeah, I'd have to agree with that. It was amazing how good the 2004 reboot was, I highly doubt it can be redone again as well.

Blue, like Brian said get yourself checked out. In the meantime, it's best not to self-diagnose. Not even real doctors do that shit, and for very good reason.

Nonsense, that's what WebMD is for, and you should always be your own lawyer.
I'd say overall, self-diagnosis is a bad plan. It is way too easy to say, "I have all these symptoms, THAT MUST BE IT!" However, it is certainly reasonable to educate yourself. One of my two sisters is a bit of a health nut. And often researches her problems and more than once suggested to her doctor the idea of, "what about this?" and turned out to be right. But we are talking about someone who has regimented her eating and exercise to near professional athlete levels...

I've lusted over Jamie Lee Curtis for a long time, despite having played WoW for 6.5 years this does not enhance my remembrance of her...

While I might agree the animals are less likely to attack while on land, I'm in little danger sitting here at my computer -- relatively, they are in greater danger and moving closer to get a better video is ill-advised.

Apparently they found the boy after 6 days about 4 miles from where he was left at a military "rest hut" -- hungry but uninjured.

The ABC report.

Why wouldn't you believe it? I'd like to see a stat on the number or hours of Minecraft game play uploaded to YouTube every hour/day... I'm sure that would be startling...

"I don't have to outrun the alligator, I only have to outrun you."

This actually made the national news, in that story they claimed it was mating season hence the 'gators are a little more active right now...
