A Weighty Matter

Post by jkjones21 » Wed May 29, 2013 3:50 pm

When Winston had first discovered the equation that would allow for instantaneous matter transportation, he knew he would revolutionize the world. The only problem he foresaw was the energy cost. It started relatively small, requiring only the wattage of a lightbulb. For larger objects, though, the cost grew exponentially.

So he set a cap on how much mass could be transported at once. Enough for a modestly sized person to pass through.

But after someone lied about their mass and left a pile of oozing white goo on the platform, he knew exactly how he’d revolutionize the world: instant liposuction.

He just wanted you to think that white goo was fat. :)

Entertaining ficlet. Disgusting, but entertaining.
