  • Mood:
The readers of get_medieval discuss fictional physics:

get_medieval: I think it will be demonstrated time and again by the comic that I am not a scientist... I just throw sciency-sounding stuff in wherever I think it's necessary. This is probably a bad habit I picked up from television. In which case, it is to my credit that I never, ever use the word 'subspace'.

michiexile: I use subspace all the time. Of course, I use it to refer to the mathematical constructs that they are, and don't even try to make them Science-y sounding props for fiction.

etako: I also say subspace often, but am referring to the space under our loft bed...

anezka_faye: Subspace is the space between my fingers where there should be a 6-inch italian bread sub with ham and cheese when I have just walked past a Subway.

mediatech: I thought subspace was the displacement volume of a submarine.

Context is highly technical, sir.
