Nerds Reveal How and Where They Would Teleport To If They Were Given The Ability

Nerds Reveal How and Where They Would Teleport To If They Were Given The Ability

[rebelmouse-image 18352927 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Science and the Universe are an awe inspiring entity. It all holds endless possibilities. The thought of time travel or finding holes in the Universe to travel through has always been, for many, within the realm of the probable. So far nothing has been proven but that doesn't stop science fanatics from believing.

Redditor cfryant *wondered _[You've got a SINGLE USE portal gun - where do place your two permanent portals and how would you use it?] The science fanatics of Reddit couldn't wait to answer. _

WAY TO OVERTHINK IT!

It's single use, so realistically I'd probably be afraid of wasting it and just hold onto it indefinitely like a rare item in an RPG.

Then, once I finally decide what I'm going to use it on, I find out that one of the two surfaces can't actually accept a portal.

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME.

[rebelmouse-image 18350483 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One in my house, the other in the back of a utility van

I could go on a road trip anywhere, and still sleep in my bed and go to work and stuff. Just have to park the van in between legs of the trip.

DOUBLE THE FUN!

[rebelmouse-image 18352928 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Two door-shaped panels. I have two portable portal surfaces now!

I HAVE THE POWER!

[rebelmouse-image 18352929 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

About 5 feet apart, vertically, on a piece of metal that I can move around. I'll wrap it in copper coil, toss a magnet in there, and generate literally infinite electricity for the planet.

LOOK BEYOND THE UNIVERSE.

[rebelmouse-image 18347134 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Because it's just a gun, I can't really shoot a portal accurately on another far planet. That's why I partner with Elon Musk to shoot one portal in an isolated room on earth and then carry the gun with a one-way rocket to mars, so that the second portal can be shot there. Boom, we quickly become a multiplanetary species. We construct a dome on mars and set up a continuous but controlled air flow coming from earth through the portal. Then we begin to export some sea water for terraforming (not bad against rising sea levels) and so forth... :D

MAKE IT RAIN!!

[rebelmouse-image 18349825 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Trafalgar square and central park.

I charge £20/$25 to use my portal.

I am now bajilionaire.

NATIONAL EFFICIENCY.

[rebelmouse-image 18978696 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Within the U.S. would allow more travelers per day since they wouldn't have to set up Customs at each end.

KEEP IT MOVING!!

[rebelmouse-image 18978697 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

First portal attached to a picture frame so it can be moved around at will.

Second portal will also be attached to a picture frame.

Now we got movable portals that be rented out as needed.

LOOK TO THE HEART OF THE SEA.

[rebelmouse-image 18978698 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One at the bottom of the ocean the other on the coast. Insert turbine into the absurdly high pressure stream of water shooting out. Build my new financial empire on the back of super cheap power.

ALMOST PARADISE.

[rebelmouse-image 18978699 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

1. Somewhere tectonically stable with good weather, accessible to transportation.

2. Geostationary orbit.

LET'S NOT GET CRAZY!

[rebelmouse-image 18353794 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

  1. Place a portal on the ceiling of a large, secure building.
  2. Place a portal on the floor of that same building.
  3. Build a containment chamber extending from one portal to the other.
  4. Wrap that containment chamber in copper wire.
  5. Extend a lead from the copper wire to a series of batteries.
  6. Drop some magnets into the containment chamber.
  7. Break the universe.

LET'S CUT THOSE APRON STRINGS.

[rebelmouse-image 18345010 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One at my house and one at my kids' house 200 miles away so I don't have to spend 16 hours in the car every time they come for the weekend (there and back to pick them up and again to drop them off).

I could easily see them whenever I/they wanted and that would be so great.

LET'S SEE THE WORLD...

[rebelmouse-image 18978701 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Boston Massachusetts and Berlin Germany. Then I'd change $150 per trip until I was rich, then let everyone use it for free.

WOW THAT IS LAZY!

[rebelmouse-image 18359988 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bottom of my computer chair and above the toilet so I never have to get up to poop ever again.

PEACE OUT EARTH!

[rebelmouse-image 18978702 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One on venus, second one at mars.

ELON... LET'S CHAT!

[rebelmouse-image 18978704 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One in the middle of nowhere where I could afford to buy a butt load of land, then get Elon Musk to put the other on the Moon. I would be the man who made building space stations on the moon a possibility instantly.

OR JUST GET A CAR.

[rebelmouse-image 18347920 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Side wall in my house, taking me to the locker room at work. No more asking for rides.

ALWAYS HELP FAMILY.

[rebelmouse-image 18353394 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My house in the US and my in-laws house in Australia. That way my husband could see his parents every day, and we could take care of them whenever they need us.

FEED THE WORLD ALL IT NEEDS.

[rebelmouse-image 18978707 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I get with an investor. We build a sort of hydroelectric dam, I put one portal in the floor to act as a drain, and one in the ceiling where the water comes out, and a water wheel in the middle that the water turns as it falls.

Perpetual motion and infinite free energy.

GO TO EXTREME OPPOSITE ENDS.

[rebelmouse-image 18978710 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Top of the Empire State Building, and as deep as humanly possible on the ocean floor.

Some people want to see the world burn. I want to see it drown.

People Divulge How They Cope With Loneliness

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

"Reddit, how do you cope with loneliness?"

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?

Everyone in New York wondered that for the past decade until they took the final payphone.

I always wonder about companies that still make you send a fax.

Y'all have heard of email right?

RedditorPineapple_WarpDrivewanted to compare notes on why we think certain things and parts of life are not yet obsolete this late in the game of time. They asked:

"It’s 2022, what shouldn’t exist now?"

It's PRIDE month. It's time to be loud and proud.

Well, every minute of everyday we should be loud and proud.

But this month gives you an extra special buzz.

So in the spirit of learning, we will be taking questions from the class.

I know cisgender straight people still have a lot they don't understand.

What do you need to know?

Redditorhre_nftwanted everyone to feel comfortable enough to be as aloud what they've been waiting to ask a queer person. Safe space for all. They asked:

"What question have you always wanted to ask LGBTQ+ people but didn’t because you don’t want to offend them?"
