In your face, Stephen Hawking!
LOL!

I've had my own issues with Dr. Hawking; I won't elaborate on that . . .

If this stuff is for real, we should be grateful we're being visited by the Good Guys -- since they seem to have demonstrated their ability to disarm our nukes -- BUT --

-- they can have my gun when they pry it from my -- oh, never mind, I'll just invite 'em in for coffee and ask 'em if they'd care to read my manuscript.

If they turn out to be Jehovah's Witlesses, THEN I'll shoot 'em!

And yes, anti-gravity propulsion systems are being developed.
Uh, Rick -- last I checked, anything even resembling that was limited to something like the pico scale -- and at that, I'm not sure it actually had to do with gravity . . . tell me more . . .

When you think about it.

An 'increase in entropy'. . .is an oxymoron.

Don't you think?

I mean, how can you increase a decrease?
Well, entropy does increase . . . and, supposedly, will continue to do so until the "heat death of the universe." If I recall, that will be when all the energy in the universe is uniformly distributed, so that nothing is any hotter than anything else. End of fun.

I found this . . .

Oh, and as to anti-gravity . . .
Besides. The conference was in France. What do those commie boneheads know?
That explains it; probably a researcher's lunch. Some of their cheeses are so repellent that Earth itself tries to escape from them. Still, it's got nothing to do with gravity.
