HOLY POTATO!

Now we know what Romneybot's mental processors are made from?

please explain in terms of its potential applications in the field of porn.

The MIT press release offers some clues:
It may take a long time to translate this "very fundamental research" into practical applications, Lee says. The work could possibly lead to advances in data storage or communications, he says - perhaps using an exotic quantum phenomenon called long-range entanglement, in which two widely separated particles can instantaneously influence each other's states. The findings could also bear on research into high-temperature superconductors, and could ultimately lead to new developments in that field, he says.

And here I thought this had to do with the time I did jello shots and then went on the tilt-a-whirl.

Everything went quantum didn't it?

quantum spin liquid = what was downed after seeing that  horrible  Bond flick

You've never heard of the Quantum Squid?  It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less time than the other one.

Wasn't this a Voyager episode?

Except this actually IS.

Wait till the US military gets a hold of it and decides we better use it before some other military does.

/Yes, the mad bomber of Tokyo General Curtis LeMay wanted to do a nuclear first strike against Cuba and the USSR during the missile crisis. He figured it would be better to use them first and survive then to use them during our funeral service. He bombed 65 Japanese cities and killed close to 400,000 people. Who knows how many lives he saved by firebombing instead of invading

You're thinking of the Pulsar Skate

The Quantum Squid's true name can only be said properly in the black speech. Cthulhu fhtagn

So what happens when I rub it on my junk?

Sounds like something Romney would use to lubricate his joints.

You'll simultaneously orgasm and not orgasm at the same time. You penis would likely collapse into a quantum singularity

I'm not saying my girlfriend is big but I have to strap a gigaparsec to the back of my ass just to keep from falling in her event horizon.

Which joke to make.... Washing my cell phone or politician joke...

I've known about quantum spin liquid for years. Whiskey, enough of it and you could watch Ted Kennedy hold multiple positions on a topic until sufficient cash was on the table to fix his quantum state.

Or did you?

Article was very sparse on the details. Have they or have they not built a working (1) ansible or (2) lightsaber?

I filled subbys mom with my quantum spin liquid.

treesloth: Article was very sparse on the details. Have they or have they not built a working (1) ansible or (2) lightsaber?


The proper quantum response would be both yes and no to both 1 and 2 at the same time.
On a slightly more serious note, this is clearly a step on the path towards working ansibles. Plasma sword design would seem to be another technology tree.

Thanks, Subby. When I saw the words " MIT" and "liquid," the first thing I thought of was  this. Now I havd a brainworm that won't leave.
