    Why would you want to kill yourself just to xerox a copy of you someplace else so they can do whatever it is you'd have liked to do if you didn't wipe yourself out of existence sending them there?

    Make sure you don't have a fly in the teleportation booth when you make the trip.

    Every seen the movie "The Prestige". That's the consequences of human teleportation. The one on the other side isn't really you, but it is.(oh and how do you spell teleportation?)
