Do lightsabers and hoverboards really exist? A shocking percentage of British adults think so

A survey by the Birmingham Science City finds that “over a fifth of adults” surveyed believe lightsabers are real. Nearly a quarter believe that humans can be teleported, 50% believe that memory-erasing technology (ala Men in Black) exist, and more than 40% believe in hoverboards. Remember them from Back to the Future Part II? Granted, we can probably blame Robert Zemeckis himself for that one. Science fiction, what have you wrought?

    I’m almost ashamed to admit that I am from Birmingham and yes, I can well imagine that a large percentage of folks believe in hoverboards, lightsabres, teleportation and mind-control technology…but through optimism, not ignorance.
    Now, people from Wolverhampton – that’s another matter entirely,…

    What? Lightsabers aren’t real?! Since when?? I don’t believe this. My entire life has been a LIE…

    Maybe not hover boards yet. But light sabers can happen, there are some laser pointers that can cut through metal or even skin and bone, seriously look it up.
