This Doesn't Happen Every Day

I'm wondering when the last time was that a new state of matter was discovered, other than when I gaze, confused, at my own leftover on a Saturday afternoon (you must've figured out a pattern for Friday nights by now).

Apparently they've discovered a 'quasi-three-dimensional electron crystal' in a transistor.

"This discovery could have momentous implications for the development of new electronic devices. Currently, the number of transistors that can be inexpensively crammed onto a single computer chip increases exponentially, doubling approximately every two years, a trend known as Moore's Law."

Yeah, cool, but really who gives a fuck about that? IT'S A NEW STATE OF MATTER!
