    Default The Long Earth...

    Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter recently released a new book called The Long Earth. i'm not talking about the book but the concept its based on. The idea is that a scientist invented a device and spread the directions to make it on the Internet. It's easy to make and involves some simple electronics from Radio Shack and a Potato. it has a switch labled East and West. When you click the switch you find yourself on another world.
    Here are the rules:
    1. There are no other humans on ANY of the other worlds... at least not ont he thousands peopel have visited in the 15 years since the devices were made. It's all wild with no cities or any other people anywhere.
    2. You can't bring any iron with you. There is iron on the other worlds and you can smelt it there, but it doesn't step with you.
    3. You can only take what you can carry.
    4. You have to go one world at a time. To get back you have to go through all the ones you went through to get where you are. No skipping.
    5. When you go to another world 99.9999% of people imediately feel like they've been kicked in the stomach and spend about 15 minutes throwing up.
    6. As far as they can tell, there is no limit to the number of worlds.
    7. Time is the same. You step at sunset and it's still sunset.
    8. Space is the same... so using the stepper in a thirty story building is a bad idea.
    9. They are different worlds and masny have had natural disasters. Volcanoes, floods, earthquakes, continents sinking. Also they have life forms many of which are deadly. Unless someone has been there before you don't know what the world is like.
    10. You can't step into a solid object so if the next world is impossible so for example if it's an ice age you have to get above the ice to get there.

    Now the question is, do you go and if so... how far?
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    YES I REALLY DID JUST MAKE THAT JOKE. I'll go hang myself now


    On a more serious note, what's the benefit of going any further? I'd rather go back tbh :|
    This is a Sig. It's horribly out of date.

    Fascinating Idea but what is to stop people from creating their own crazy government on another world and second if it is one at a time what happens if two people are holding the device?

    Ah, potato.

    Anyway so far as i can see you're talking about a device that nearly anyone can make at home. Which has a switch that puts you into another world when used?

    Sir, are you being serious or are you just doing whatever?

    As I said, it's a new book by Terry Pratchett. Sort of a Pioneering thing.
