I don't know if it's true but I believe it's possible... and I believe that because I know that's clearly something humans would do if we had the technology to pull it off. I also think it's clear that such technology is physically possible and they we are rapidly going that direction.
If anything is possible than why can't harry's statement about flying witches be true?

Can you or anyone else PROVE witches flying around on broomsticks don't exist?

Maybe this Multiverse is a simulation of another Multiverse that was accidentally spawned, yathink?

As far as religion goes take that somewhere else....

Maybe you should make a thread somewhere else about the probability of real witches flying around on broomsticks, I believe this one is about simulated universes.

It was also a thread claiming there was evidence of a simulated universe. So far there's no arguing over the merit of the claim, just some less than subtle snickering at the OP and a weird Halloween character tangent. The video didn't even come from the hokey website; it was a linked youtube video of an interview by James Gates, a theoretical physicist from the University of Maryland.

Actually, the witch broom industry has seem a large decrease due to highly paid executive bonuses and overseas competition. Maintenance has been at an all time low. Some of the older brooms have had a lot of stress on their airframes over the years and it is just outright risky to fly on one. All that combined with the unions wanting more and more benefits for free and job pools while the rest of us actually work, well you just cannot afford to produce a quality broom made here in the USA.
