Elicited an audible "what the fuuuuck" from me.

So, is there a practical application for this or what?

The possibilities are only limited by time, resources and how many hours of Level 85 Blood Elf Mage you've invested into your creativity lobes.

zero resistance -> zero heat -> huge currents -> all kinds of cool shit

something like that...

I once got in a huge debate with a physics major when I told him that frictionless bearings can exist. He told me there never has been frictionless bearings, were no frictionless bearings now and never would be any frictionless bearings. I told him I could prove him wrong with one word: maglev. He didn't have an answer to that.

Wow, awesome story! You totally won that debate with the physics major. Bet you are smarter than he is, and you sure showed him!!

Funny, I'm not a physics major and my response would be that a bearing in this case is defined as "an object, surface, or point that supports" and that a magnetic field can not be described as "an object, surface, or point", and that therefor you have not described a "frictionless bearing" but rather a "frictionless field".

Why am I not surprised that a physics student would not know what eddy currents are. Not that there aren't some mind roastingly smart physics students. It's just that the fashion of the day is to obsess over 11 dimensional math rather than experimental researches.

Just to be clear, the eddy currents are the "friction" you'll be fighting with your maglev.

This one time I had a conversation with my imaginary friend and he said it was impossible for a mobius strip to roll correctly and I just said "oh yeah? Well what about shredded wheats?"

He didn't know what to say about that.

Still not as depressing as The Magnetic Fields.

I bet they'd make great coasters. Keeps your drink cold and handy.

The coolest thing about flying around in a vehicle that floats around on a giant block of frozen liquid nitrogen over magnets would be the trail of billowing mist left behind you.

and the huge aftermarket of LED attachments to illuminate said mist

Uh, needs "technology so advanced it's indistinguishable from magic" tag. Humans are some bad ass apes today.
