Tackling tachyons

Does anyone know much about that favourite sub atomic particle of Star Trek, the tachyon?

 

It's a theoretical particle that can only travel at speeds faster than light. This could give rise to time travel theories what with the theory of relativity and all.

 

I recently looked it up and was amazed to discover that there isn't actually any evidence for it's existence. Physisists have tried to detect them because apparently they'd give off a certain radiation (I can't remember what it's called), but it's analagous to the sonic boom caused by supersonic aircraft. To no avail however.

 

It's all a bit like the quark, supposedly the most elemental particle, that also hasn't been observed. Scientists have managed to come up with about six variants of the quark though, with three further variants of each. They seem to invent a new kind of quark every time they come across a problem that isn't explained by the existing ones..

 

I have to say, that if I didn't have a weakness with maths, I could become a nuclear physisist. I've certainly got the imagination for it..

TackyOns are HiTek devices that transmit TACHYONS: hypothetical particles that travel faster than the speed of light! When Tachyons are channeled through your TackyOn gizmo, they emit FAUXTONS - superluminal particles of "light" invisible to sublight creatures. Does the light go off on your TackyON device? The answer is YES! But only when you become a TACKYNAUT and take a Tackyonic quantum jump into another universe dimension will you be able to see the light!

 

TackyOn devices include Channel Pins, Fauxton EarRings and Cyber Fetishes - an absolute necessity for every Super-SySop! Each TackyOn

 

device is made from the best electronic parts available in the sublight-nanoscale universe!

Re:Re:Tackling tachyons.

 

True..But there is a more important issue at hand here...

 

Should peanuts be fitted with crash helmets by law?

 

..Or should they be allowed to exercise their inbred sartorial elegance and flair for the unusual in pursuit of more aesthetically pleasing headware,..oooh..I don't know, maybe something with feathers??

 

You tell me...

 

(If anyone besides Stephen Hughes is reading this, I do apologise. There is no subliminal message, it's just sheer nonsense. Every other message that I have posted is completely serious though, so please don't distrust them:)) Thanks and goodbye.)
