When I was a kid I used to fantasize about a future where the would be teleportation booths on every street corner.
You'd walk in, pop some coins in the slot, dial your destination then whoooooooo.....
I live in the UK so the teleportation booths would be run by BT, Vodafone, O2 or possibly Virgin. I imagine that you could get an off-peak tariff to be able to teleport anywhere in the world after 6pm.
Trouble is, your head would arrive at the intended destination but your limbless and bloody torso would arrive somewhere in Cairo and your assorted arms and legs would be buffered indefinitely, only to ve lost for all time once they reboot their server.
