Nonsense paper written by iOS autocomplete accepted for conference
New Zealand professor asked to present his work at US event on nuclear physics despite it containing gibberish all through the copy
By Elle Hunt

In a stroke of genius, a paper written entirely based on iOS autocorrect suggestions has been accepted for a conference. 

Submitted under a fake name, the abstract was quickly accepted and the author was asked to prepare an oral presentation for the conference.

Look at this thing of beauty:

”Nonsense paper written by iOS autocomplete accepted for conference“. (What the hell am I studying for then?)

The author of the paper said that “Since I have practically no knowledge of nuclear physics I resorted to iOS autocomplete function to help me writing the paper, I started a sentence with ‘atomic’ or ‘nuclear’ and then randomly hit the autocomplete suggestions.”

But it’s kind of hilarious, actually. There’s a sentence in the paper that says:

“The atoms of a better universe will have the right for the same as you are the way we shall have to be a great place for a great time to enjoy the day you are a wonderful person to your great time to take the fun and take a great time and enjoy the great day you will be a wonderful time for your parents and kids.”

It concludes: “Power is not a great place for a good time.”

This is proof that conference organizers don’t even bother reading the researches they choose (at this point, probably randomly) to have discussed.

Remember, kids, you can be the best scientist in the world, but power is not a great place for a good time.

Messaging news! Three things are happening! All of them are good:

  • There’s a new button on every post. It’s a paper airplane.
  • That paper airplane lets you send any post as a message.
  • And messaging is out to everyone. We flipped the switch.

So now 100% of you can talk to a Tumblr using posts instead of words. Or in addition to. Whichever. Have fun!

The paper plane is on iOS and the web right now, and it’ll be flung out to Android users over the next 24 hours.
