    I remember reading a pulp story about a scientist who had created a machine that could tell a mans death. He kept his own in an envelope and refused to open it. He became a media sensation and members of the press, politicians and private citizens came to get their prediction. He was killed in the end for a prediction he made.

    Today we see a story of an Iranian scientist who has purportedly created a machine that can see 8 years into the future.

    I wonder if nations or private individuals are going to hunt him down......

    edit:: I think the story was called: Machine of Death - http://xkcdsucks.blogspot.com/2010/11/special-bonus-review-randys-poorly.html

    I admit I am not the worlds greatest mathematician but if he is 27 currently and the device predicts a minimum of 5 years out and it took 10 years to develop then British newspapers are reporting on the imagination of an Iranian 12-year-old? :coffee:


    (27 years old - 5 years required to validate the results - 10 years development)

    .... and too late! It is now being denied by Iranian officials. I guess their PR department realized that this was going to turn out worse than their other recent technology claims.

    Iran rejects claims about registration of ‘time machine’

    So, they're only denying registration of the machine, not the machine itself, yet!

    You'd think that the machine would've predicted 5-8 years ago that this would happen. :coffee:
