lab is specially equipped to investigate a specific area of rumourology.
The Labs and their specific tasks as listed below, follow a model
of localised experimentation and investigation first outlined
by Doktor Rumor in her monograph "shhhhh", SRCSR Press,
To investigate the signal to noise ratio in rumour <deriv.
rumore (It), noise>
To calculate the longevity of the rumour waveform
To discover the oldest living rumour and its susurrant source
To discover a sonar algorithm for rumour generator (see Nuclear
To investigate rumour eruptions
To discover the deepest living rumour and its magmatic source
To measure the seismic waves of rumour eruptions
Lab: Rumour Genome Project
To discover the rumour gene(s)
To splice rumour gene(s) enabling
handling of rumours
To investigate the propagation/reproduction of rumours and to
ultimately create artificial rumours
To discover the rumour Theory of Everything
To create a rumour generator
To build an Electron Positron Rumour Collider, similar to the
very large accelerator in Cern Switzerland, so that scientists
can recreate the original big bang or the birth of
rumour. This is a long term goal as it will need major finance
and commitment from the international community.
To discover rumours in the ether.net
To experiment with memetic algorithms.
and Found Department
Department includes a major database of all known lost and found
from the database:
Jules Vernes secret journey to Maria Island in Tasmania
Al Queda is the CIA
The shameful use of refugees by the Australian government to supplement
dwindling food supplies.
John Howard is a robot created by Rodney Brooks at MIT Lab in
lost rumours are discovered/uncovered, this Department will direct
