image for Scientific breakthrough shock

Ripples of amazement spread throughout the scientific world today as scientists revealed today what many had already suspected. In a shocking development seen by many as almost predictable, a discovery was made which shook the world of science to its very foundations. So ground-breaking was the development discovered today, that hardened sceptics were left scratching their heads in disbelief.

By the time this amazing achievement had leaked into the public domain, reporters the world over were stampeding towards dictaphones like crazed children who had over-dosed on tartazine.

In quite monumental scenes, leading news agencies were left entirely flat-footed and looking rather silly by the bewildering turn of events. Leading scientists were heard muttering incoherently and running around disparately in no particular direction as they were left stunned by the huge importance of it all.

Global leaders immediately cancelled everything as an emergency meeting of the UN was called, throwing cities worldwide into mass panic, and President Bush appealed for calm as rising panic threatened the very fabric of our society.

"What we face here is unlike anything this great nation has ever come across before. Science has been rewritten, and what once was normal, now isn't."

What was taken for granted was no more, as the very nature of existence was torn apart like so much tissue paper. One thing is for sure; because of science, our way of life will never be the same again.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
