So, apparently, gravitational waves are a thing

If there's some way I can harness the time-compression aspects of this so as to shorten my wait for retirement, sweet. Otherwise, what's the big deal?

Can you surf gravitational waves? If you can, where's a good place to catch one?

What it means is, with the right technology (which none of us will live long enough to see, and probably not our great-great-grandchildren either), the "folding space" of Dune fame will be theoretically possible, enabling interstellar travel. Of course, that's if we don't invent the warp drive first. ;-)

If space can be folded, can Michael Moore (not to mention other liberal fatheads) be folded as well?

JeffS,
I'm afraid not. To fold somebody like Moore would require a large increase in entropy. The entropy in a closed system cannot increase, only decrease or remain the same. Since Moore and his ilk have completely closed minds, their entropy cannot increase, so they cannot be folded.

We can only hope Moore and his ilk go nova.

I dunno HAL, at his current mass, if Moore goes supernova he would probably end up collapsing into a black hole.

Which would take care of the water problem in Flint.

If Michael Moore went supernova, he'd take out half the planet.
