    Short answer yes. but using the term faster than light suggests that the 'travel' will occur at extreme velocities. I maintain arriving from points A to B in space will be achieved instantaneously by folding space.

    yep. Gold is too soft a material to use in making a firearm (unless one simply had a gold tube and used it as part of a one-shot zip gun)

    If you put an airplane on a giant treadmill would it generate enough lift to take off?
    Children in the back seat can cause accidents - and vice versa.

    How do you think this can be done?
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    I can answer that one - Yes there's a great airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    I don't know, but now that you suggest it I think I will apply for a $150k grant to study this important issue.

    Quite simple really. First you build a machine that can fold space, and then you step into it, set your coordinates, and then hit the 'activate' button.

    I can't find the infamous quote, but it goes something like 'if you want to find the cause of a problem, the first place you should look is in the mirror'

    A flower truck just passed me on my way back into work. I wonder if that's an omen of some sort

    I think that is probably the most fascinating question of all. I'd be happy to answer that, but it would be helpful if you first told me who the Dassler Brothers are/were.

    Is it possible for the average American to eat foods that don’t contain GMO’s or pesticides without going broke?
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    I believe "Donald Trump's hair" is in fact a sentient being/life form not indigenous to the planet earth (kinda like Dark Truder's hair piece 'Traxie' on the kids tv showZula Patrol) that sits atop his head. It may be a pet.

    Most people haven't heard of Rudi Dassler. Do you know his brother's name?

    No they don't. My ears are quite small relatively speaking. When I'm an old guy I'll probably end up with average sized ears.

    I wouldnt know because I usually end up swallowing it first.

    I still rely on a Magic 8 ball for my answers....oh you must be talking about Magic 8 ball 1.0. I use a 4.1 Magic 8 ball that answers include responses such as 'GTFO', 'you go girl', and 'STFU'

    I just looked it up now....as a veteran I couldn't care less! Hell, it sounds like the impulsive, dumb kinda thing I might have done myself in my salad days. Good thing they didnt have facebook back then!

    Hey, I had a Stormy Kromer (knockoff) hat when I was a kid. I did grow up in Michigan after all.
