Iranian scientist invents "time machine"

Postposted on Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:42 pm

An Iranian scientist has registered a time machine that he says will work with 98 percent accuracy.
He said the machine would use algorithms to predict the future of any individual, between five and eight years into their future.

"My invention easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next five-eight years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you," he said.

"The reason that we are not launching our prototype at this stage is that the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight."

My favorite parts:

Ali Razeghi registered "The Aryayek Time Traveling Machine" with Iran's state-run Centre for Strategic Inventions, The Telegraph reports.


The Telegraph reports Mr Razeghi is the managing director of Iran's Centre for Strategic Inventions, and that he has another 179 inventions registered in his name.

If it can predict the future 5-8 years out with 98% accuracy, he ought to run the contingency where the Chinese steal it, and then figure out how to prevent that outcome :lol:

I'd rather have a machine that can predict tomorrow's winning lottery numbers. LOL

Why is this news?

I don't know whether this is good or bad for Iran's image to get into the headlines in the western world.... even if it is clearly of the humorous kind. I think it's sad to indulge delusional people like this, regardless of which country they come from. But it's the internet, so people are always going to apply this to their set of things to mock Iran about even though it has nothing to do with them, really.

I totally saw this coming going way back to next year.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

IIRC a hot tub was involved.

Unfortunately when they asked it about that very thing, the response was "It is decidedly so"...
