Walking Walter!
Our heroic friends are in big trouble when their worst fears come to life in the form of a Walter White no longer constrained by a hazmat suit! Not only are the zombies faster, they now randomly disassemble formerly useful items, leaving piles of useless parts behind...

Can these "speed walkers" be stopped? Will the accidental discovery that the sound of a tattoo gun renders them motionless be enough to save our friends? Tune in to our exclusive new channel and find out!

It isn't even a theory though, as there isn't anything to support it.

There is no conclusive proof, but there is plenty of evidence that the universe is a simulation. In many ways, the universe appears to be designed to be easy to simulate. If you were designing a universe simulation, what would you do?

1. Due to limited computational resources, the simulated universe would be granular or "quantum". 2. To limit computation, reality would be held in a fuzzy probabilistic "superposition" state until it is actually observed, similar to how a GPU running OpenGL will skip the generation of hidden polygons. 3. The maximum speed of information transfer would be finite, to limit the propagation of changes through the universe.

All of these are actually true in our universe, ergo, we are very likely a simulation.

How the hell do you know? It's never been tried.

I'd like to teach the world to rip, Bongs in perfect harmony.

No No No!!!
You have to build one big COSMIC BONG and nail everyone on earth at the same time...
That way it's a fair race to the snack aisles of the world!
I know, you say "What about those brave souls serving on submarines?"
Well, They can surface, breathe deep, and head for the snack isles of the world!

Hang two of them on a pulley and motor set up so when one sphere is full you raise it to the surface while dropping an empty sphere. all you are lifting is the water as the spheres are equal. Once the empty sphere is on the bottom and the full sphere is swinging in the breeze, you drain the full one using gravity...
