There's that word again; "heavy." Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the earth's gravitational pull?

Can't wait until the cops get this technology...

"Smith was arrested with 1000000000000000000000000 yoctograms of a controlled substance with an estimated street value of $100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 yoctodollars."

Yoctogram, Yoctogram, does whatever a Yocto can...

Gossip magazines will be able to tell me *exactly* how overweight my favorite celebrities are!

There's also the Yottogram, but the only thing that can weigh that is your mom.

Hm, interesting. Given the right setup, you could probably measure the production of individual molecules, which would be quite the advancement for molecular biology.

Not that I'd know what "the right setup" would look like, but a guy can dream, yes?

I now see why that funny button is there

It was named after the weight of Yoctomom's brain...
 
2012-04-02 09:00:01 PM
maybe they can now measure the weight of a soul...

And what is that in ounces you liberal socialist elitist metric users?
 
2012-04-03 04:14:11 AM
Or, about $10 in marijuana dollars.

What we perceive as weight is the effect of God pushing objects toward the earth, which is flat. The theory of grabbity is but one of the many lies perpetuated by the devil himself disguised as "scientific fact" to trick people into thinking there is no god.
