The Speed of Dark, Mr H, Professor Brian Cox and the New Scientist Magazine
As some of you will know among the various dimensions of cyberspace I am the grand leader of a small elite group of thinkers whose thoughts manifest themselves within their own various blogs. We are know as RATs which stands for Radical Abstract Thinkers and the objective is to apply radical abstract thinking to what ever takes our fancy at the time. One of the group yesterday came up with The Speed of Dark as apposed to The Speed of Light and I thought that sounds damn clever Mr H (the member of RATswhose idea it is) so in the best tradition of science I am nicking his idea. You might think that is not fair but science is littered with people who have nicked other folks ideas. Mr H himself is keen to point out that he has had several of his ideas nicked now, but is adamant that his brains have not been sucked out by a strange alien machine in the woods with a strange unearthly unrelenting flashing blue light at its source. Mr Jones says they have tried to get him several times with this terrible mind sucking beam and on one occasion he even heard a strange voice as if speaking through a megaphone saying to him We know you are hiding in the bushes Mr Jones now come out with your hands up and we will just pop down to the station and file a report again . . . . . . .sigh. Well as Mr Jones says we all know what that means they planned to remove all his thoughts and turn him into a Zombie Alien being.
OK yes back to The Speed of Dark, I was telling the Physics teacher about this and explaining that dark travels instantaneously because it is not fixed by the speed of light and therefore by using a dark beam it would be possible to leap across the universe in no time. So if we were to build a Dark Anti-Light Particle Beam Engine then I would be famous and win a Nobel Prize for coming up with a brilliant idea. The Physics teacher was very enthusiastic and made loads of notes and was scribbling little formula and the like as explained my idea (yes OK my nicked idea from Mr H). Then the lunch bell went and well lunch is important so I ran off and ate loads. . . . . . . . YUM
After lunch we had IT and the IT teacher said she wanted to show us the Physics teachers new theory which he has just submitted to the New Scientist Magazine which apparently is going to feature the physics teacher on the cover with that Professor Brian Cox pointing at a mock up of a Dark Anti-Light Particle Beam Engine. Well that is a bit of a cheek the physics teacher has submitted my idea (OK yes MrH’s idea) as his own that’s terrible, I can see an expensive protracted legal action that lasts for years going on so I wish Mr H luck with that. I must remember to submit my own evidence first, next time I nick someone’s ideas before I discuss it with others. I wonder if I can get my hands on one of those beams that suck’s brains out. . . . . . . .Mum has just said IDIOT
Ooooooo yes Heavy Harry the Cat appears to be back to normal and is his old grumpy self again now.
