I reckon it must really tickle when you get beamed. Imagine this in a future possibility. You get teleported from one place to another and the tingling sensation makes you giggle. Then you realise you've landed in the transporter chamber of the Starship Enterprise. You stop giggling and finally compose yourself. It makes me realise that the expressions, "in bits", "beside yourself", "shattered" and "all over the place", are going to be somewhat literal in the space adventures of tomorrow. And yep, teleport your kids cause you "love 'em to bits!"
Oh yes I've had a dream
It seems it was a dream of beams
Of tractor beams
Of parallel beams
The Amazing Adventures of Mr. Beam
And I think to myself about astral travel
Where the dream of beams
Bea-ea-ea-ea-eam, beam, beam, beam
Bea-ea-ea-ea-eam, beam, beam, beam....
