The Offal Official Pyhisics

Post by Alex »

I put forward that Wavehandium style of physics becomes the official reallity of the Ooniverse.

Any entity that disagrees, line up for eradication.

:D

I am a very ignorant person. With a tremendous lack of knowledge.
Something I am luckily extremely aware of. :roll:

So... please explain and define wavehandium and wavehandium style of physics.

somehow "offal physics" seems a far more interesting topic for discussion.

Wavehandium is a rare allotrope of handwavium. The presence of either can be detected by a sudden violation of the laws of physics as they are currently, and forseeably, understood. Some pertinent examples being:
  • Handwavium chairs, which allow organic beings to be accelerated phenomenally hard without blacking out, or being flattened to the thickness of a credit card
  • Handwavium spaceships that possess mass and volume, yet have no momentum regardless of their velocities
  • Handwavium engines that can provide limitless amounts of thrust while being small, portable and consuming no fuel
  • Handwavium fuel which, when used in a handwavium engine, provides enough energy to rapidly create and maintain a wormhole of multi-lightyear range
When in doubt, we can only appeal to Arthur C. Clarke's Third Law: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic" :lol:

Easy, Just put your hands in the air wave them about and say;

"This is how the Ooniverse works"

Very easy. And works great.

Appart from my spelling. The thought should hold as a good idea.

p.s. If you want to know more about Physics or my spelling, Read heaps more fun books on physics.
Speacialy the ones where physics don't really apply.

Alex,

I have always been partial to the CHAOS theory and the butterly effect. Since disturbances in space are generated at the speed of light and go in a spherical 360 degree directions... everything is affected to some degree.. some minor or some catastrophicically unpredictable. Your handwavium is a perfect example of the butterly effect.

Aaaah... the utterly butterly effect... ...the sticky side of the universe always lands downwards...
Very funny, Scotty, now beam down my clothes...

Now in this universe "Sticky side down" usually has something to do with a slice of bread, butter, jam and a table.

This has been proven to have nothing to do with the sicky side, but everything to do with the average hight of a kitchen table.

To think that your tax money paid for the research!!

In the Ooniverse, your sticky side would never see a down side :D
