    You'd need to sign up for an EZPass account and tag to put on the dash first, and I'm not even sure who to send the money to.

    I already have an EZPass account and I'll be more than happy to serve as a conduit for any tolls that may be charged. Or we could just tell 'em to send the bill to that new Space Force thingy Mike Pence is in charge of. :whistling:

    I wonder if there are more interesting viruses in space than boring old Corona:whistling:

    Exactly this. I really think that folding space is the only real solution for reasons mentioned. And the crazy time problems that exist that change rapidly if someone gets close to light speed travel ( huge changes between just 99% to 99.999% of the speed of light). And depending on where exactly you are in the universe, time is always different for each location relative to who’s observing who from what location when we’re talking light years. How in the world could anyone line up any plans regarding time when it could be zero hour on earth, but 30 years in the future at point A to the east, 20 years in the future at point B to the west, but to the observer that’s at point A looking at point B, they’re seeing 50 years back, that is, if they suddenly have stopped. If they are still moving then events at each point will continue to rapidly age from each other, but differently from earth.

    But I digress, folding space makes the most sense and exactly what the movie Dune was all about, that and spice cupcakes, and more importantly who controls the spice cupcakes :).

    Discoveries are being made in quantum mechanics that proves that in certain conditions atoms can be in two places at once so there’s another thought of travel if and when we can manipulate our atoms for such purposes.

    Well While Space Folding /Bending, Worm Holes, Sub Space, the Inherent Problem will always be Energy Required and that's something were Not Likely to ever achieve unless a new source or type of energy is discovered or created

    We have plenty to discover on our very planet.
    No need to walk out in the dark cold out there.
    It is not the heaven above, it is hell.

    We have it good here

    If there is "intelligent" life out there, imagine what their guitars look and sound like?

    My thoughts exactly. Surprising too. I'm generally an optimist.
