Whew, good thing I got over being dared to do something in the third grade.  That, and being called chicken.  I only respond to Triple Dog Dares now.

Everything I know about interstellar space travel tells me that it is nearly impossible.  At least, not with our current conceptions of how it would work.

That's still far better news than "We figured out the secrets of space-time. We're not going anywhere. :silver: "
