Keep taking the medicine


According to IFL Science (only partially trustworthy) scientists at Fermilab, near Chicago, have done a mind bending experiment with a laser interferometer that suggests our universe is not a hologram. They apparently measured space down to a resolution of 10 to the power -35 meters (a size just slightly smaller than the dignity of an "I'm a celebrity get me out of here" contestant) If we were living in a version of the Matrix then this measurement should have shown a distortion suggesting interference from the hologram, no such fuzziness was detected so we can all carry on in our normal state of denial, i.e. denying that it's just us and we're totally responsible for the crap that we do to each other. Of course this might be exactly what the designers of the hologram want us to detect so who knows. Personally I'm just going to carry on taking the blue pills and hope for the best, surely no sane Universe designer could have come up with something as ridiculous as Donald Trumps hair?

Trump's hair is a buggy subroutine.
