Army scientists have successfully "teleported" a fully equipped squad from a Massachusetts research and development facility to a training area in Germany, the Natick Soldier Systems Center (NSSC) announced today.
Officials at Natick were elated by the event, which promises to one day revolutionize the way that American troops and equipment are transported around the globe. It also could ultimately make overseas bases obsolete as forces are instead moved from U.S. soil to remote trouble spots in the blink of an eye.
According to Storm, a device not unlike the "flux capacitor" seen in the "Back to the Future" movie series was employed during the experiment. This led to immediate speculation that the Army was also working on time travel, but time travel requirements of generating 1.21 gigawatts is no trivial feat.
"We're only concerned with place, not time," said Storm, a twinkle in his eye. "This development could change the entire course of human history."
The Task Force expects to report its initial findings by April 1, 2017.

Yeah I guess, my point was simply that they could have chosen something less...I don't know...more hopeful. All day every day we get war and stuff, damn mindset is killing us. I get it, I really do, it just struck a nerve is all.
