We've recently established that Einstein was wrong and that information can
travel faster than light. They managed to use entangled electrons to observe at
a distance that the other electron got altered, without any time passing. It
doesn't affect your exposition in the least, I just thought it was cool :).

Nice exposition, by the way. I didn't run the numbers, though :).

I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
