To the dismay of "Star Wars" fans everywhere, physicists have long cried foul about the science of building real-life lightsabers. According to conventional physics, photons don't behave like regular particles of matter. They are massless particles, and can't interact with one another. It's therefore impossible to build anything out of light with a solid structure, such as a lightsaber.

But a breakthrough new discovery from researchers at the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms could change everything, according to phys.org (link provided below). They have discovered how to make individual photons interact and bind together into molecular structures. Not only does this represent a whole new state of matter, but these light molecules can potentially be shaped to form solid structures — in other words, lightsabers!

I don't know. Would House of Card's Frank Underwood really invest any of his precious time in trying to catch 'em all? Or would he in fact just go full psycho-mode and commit all his time and resources to getting at least 1,000 Gyarados'? Probably the latter.

Agents with the Border Patrol apprehended two Canadian teens that wandered themselves past the border into the U.S. while they were in the throes of a particularly engaging Pokémon GO session.

"Both juveniles were so captivated by their Pokémon GO games that they lost track of where they were. They crossed the International Border inadvertently but agents were able to reunite them with their mother." said Michael Rappold of the Havre Sector Border Patrol Office.


F**king Canadians man, am I right?
