: The other day I caught a litte bit of "alien history" on the history channel. It was really just an examination of sci-fi ideas, but still pretty interesting.

: I saw the bit on teleportation and decided I would never, never teleport if given the oppurtunity. Shocking, since I used to yearn for a teleportation device!

: The premise is that teleportatoin just makes a copy of a person from all their atoms that they've just scanned, but in order to prevent rampant cloning they vaporize the person. This doesn't sound safe to me! But it does make one wonder why everyone on the old Star Trek shows get upset when someone dies. They can just teleport in the last copy of the person.

: Caleyna

yes. as long as someone could show me conclusively that it had been working well consistantly for quite some time and as long as I could be assured that I would arrive with no loss of memory. and silly Carrie. they get upset when the pattern gets lost. sometimes they DO rematerialize them in the spot they tried to leave from. Sometimes the pattern buffers get all screwed up in a transporter malfunction, and then they're screwed. tsk.
