A time machine.
"Dave, don't mess with a man with a Wayback Machine. I can make it so you were never born."
When you have an important deadline to meet and time seems to be going faster in order to screw you over.
Guy1: I had a paper to turn in for science, but while I was working on it was like, one second it was 9, and then next second it was midnight. Guy2: You totally got time rapped!!
|3.||non-deterministic turing machine|
A machine capable of solving the toughest mathematical problems in polynomial time. It knows everything, is all powerful and gives you answers before you even ask a question. I didn't know what to write here, so I asked it, it gave me this response.
Guy1: What do they keep in area 51?
Guy2: The non-deterministic turing machine. They don't want you to know they have it, but they've been using it to solve crazy math problems in polynomial time for YEARS!
Guy1: Dude, you're fucked up.
|4.||non-deterministic polynomial time|
The set of the most difficult problems in Mathematics, solvable in polynomial time only by a non-deterministic turing machine, but verifiable in polynomial time. In mathematics and computer science is shortened to np. Of course, the editors of UD would rather publish BULLSHIT or several thousand entries for George Bush than something having to do with math. Also, why won't they publish "S4R" is a perfectly acceptable definition.
Rule number 5 + Rule number 10 guys. Seriously. I'm an editor too.
Aaron: Did you know the editors of UD don't actually follow rules 5 and 10?
Mike: Yeah, they turned down my definition for "np", y'know, its short for "Non-deterministic Polynomial time".
James: Yeah, and then the go and publish shit like "S.C.L.I.D". Apparently technical terms for guns are fine, but not in Math.
Aaron: Yeah, seriousy uncouth.
1. A machine, usually imagined as a vehicle that can travel through the dimension of time. Something that has been sought after since the dawn of science, a few scintists believe we are on the verge of actually coming up with a working machine for sending messages back through time using high intensity lasers to warp space in a similar way that black holes do.more...
2. Possibly the most famous sci-fi time machine was driven by Marty McFly in the Back to the Future trilogy, it was made from a DeLorean, one of the most useless cars ever made (presumably to be ironic), which has gull-wing doors and looks a lot like a Lotus Esprit.
The Time Machine was a novel by H.G. Wells in the 1800's, it was one of the first works of science fiction to inspire real scientists to begin studying time.
Side effects of time travel include paradoxes like if you killed your own grandfather before he concieved your father you wouldn't be able to return to the same future you came from, causing alternate realities.
3. Time Machine is also a term that can be used for a bottle of vodka or other high volume spirit. If downed quickly it can create a memory black out, so the next thing you remember after beginning to drink is waking up the next morning. This creates a sense of "what the, who the, where the, did I just?" in the subject, a lot like if you had just travelled through time.
Side effects of time travel include soiling your underwear, excessive vomiting, causing a public scene, tryin...
Something on which one would take a ride which leaves you still feeling mean.
As sung about in the UK no.3 hit single by Hawkwind in 1972 with the now infamous Lemmy, later of Motörhead, on bass guitar and vocals. The song is thought to be based on a time-travelling bicycle or something.
"I just took a ride in a silver machine,
And I'm still feeling mean"
|7.||rage against the machine|
Rage Against the Machine, arguably once the most powerful and culturally-relevant societal activist group, used the popular contemporary 'thrash rock' genre of music as a vehicle to attempt to create a broader consciousness of issues pertaining to the mass-media, the power of corporate coercion and the conditioning of Westernised society to create complacency; ultimately allowing for the centralisation of power amongst the fascist State and multi-conglomerate corporations such as the WTO and partisan mass-media organisations such as CBS; the collective Machine. RATM was genuinely unique to the Western media current through their strongly rhetoric lyrics and the formidability of their music.more...
Perhaps what could be seen as tragic; RATM disbanded at the beginning of the new Century, commonly cited as being due to political differences. Zach de la Rocha, who was evidently the bands most politically aware and zealous member, was often said to have despised the path the band was taking into commercialism; a Western symbol of control which they had always struggled to fight.
Regardless of RATM's downfall, it is generally agreed that the effectual footprint of the band has led to a general intellectual and conscious awakening for a generation born into Twenty-First Century; who are seemingly predestined to a bondage to the will of today's powerful media giant and the fascist State. Zach de la Rocha's political mind-set in the time of the band's apex, and indeed in general, i...
