Do we live in a computer simulation?

14 December, 2012

A decade ago, a British philosopher put forth the notion that the universe we live in might in fact be a computer simulation run by our descendants. While that seems far-fetched, perhaps even incomprehensible, a team of physicists at the University of Washington has come up with a potential test to see if the idea holds water.

No 94 m track for the London Olympics

12 July, 2012

Do you remember the Australian mockumentary The Games that satirised the bureaucracy behind the Sydney Olympics? One episode revolved around the 100-metre athletics track, which it turned out was only 94 metres long. Even a decade later, the YouTube clip ‘The Games : The 100 Metres track’ is very funny. However, such things should not happen at the London Olympics as the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is providing distance calibration.
