. . . is for tele-porters to be invented already. Is that too much to ask?
Really, it's the 21st century - shouldn't we be able to zap our molecules to B.J.'s to pick up our holiday necessities and then zap back home? Can you imagine how much less stressful a New England winter would be if we could just zap the kids to school and then zap ourselves to work? No shoveling, no taking our lives into our hands trying to drive the short trip to the store at 20 miles an hour, no picking our way through icy parking lots and risking a broken limb?
