My needs are small now. One day it hit me while watching Star Trek:TNG during the Dr. Who-is-gone-forever-era. Would _I_ trust a force field? What about the tin-foil shells of today’s beyond-atmosphere craft? Or what about a ship? Would I go across the ocean on a large boat?
And all of these were “probably not”. That’s me though. I’d likely do the vomit-comet and I’d gladly see the “thin blue line”.
But I’m not much for long car rides either if I can help it.
So, for me, I’d be happy to see someone else doing it live on TV. I was always a little envious of the moon-landing era. It’s before my time.
I think it’s the speed for me.
I’d gladly go through a portal and get demolecularized if it means I didn’t have experience the long travel time.
I once read a book that involved portal travel that you had to keep your eyes closed. I don’t remember who wrote it.
Anyway, in this story, if you opened your eyes while in transit, you would EXPERIENCE the travel time and _age_ horrendously and painfully quickly.
Of course, one boy HAD to open his eyes and came out the other side an old man, much to the horror of his family.
5.2 MB/s is it’s top speed on a clear day.
5.2MB/S – my DSL is 10Mb/s with 0.768MB/S upload speed on a good day.
So I would DEFINITELY be on Facebook and uploading videos to youtube and stuff smile emoticon [probably making 100s of Vines though – that’s my favorite way to share little things]
