String theory, in 26 seconds

SciAm's George Musser takes a crack at explaining one of the most complex (and controversial) concepts in all of physics — all in less than 26 seconds. Not bad, Musser. But can you do it for M-theory? What about those 11 dimensions of vibrating strings?

I can sum it up even faster:

It's a bullshit theory that every major scientific discovery causes us to move the goal posts farther and farther back to avoid having our theory destroyed (and our time being considered a waste). So instead of acknowledging it as a false path we continue wasting minds and resources on something we've yet to develop a single experiment for.

Okay, so it wasn't faster.
