News of the Weird

I've come across a few things I've come across lately that I thought were worth sharing:

  • I think this is definitely cool in a very geeky sort of way. If they can make an invisible cloak in 18 months I wonder when they'll be available to the public and all the cool (and, cause my job makes me a cynic) and criminal things they'll be used to do.
  • I wonder if this glue would come apart with antibacterial soap or antibiotics? Who tested it to figure out a dab the size of a quarter could hold up an elephant?
  • Apparently Moses wasn't the only one who saw burning bushes. This company has a laser used to prune bushes. I'm guessing this is how the Jetsons prune their bushes.

Laser shrub trimming? And it's only a ere 50 grand? It might be worth it.

And the invisible cloak is freakyyyy!

Strangely I'm not at all afraid of the bird flu.
Bird flu gets a big fat meh from me.

The invisibility cloak, however, will be high on my list of purchases.

Izzy: I thought it was a bargain, and the cloak freaks me out too.

sunshine scribe: me too!

Sara: I totally think that if it hits big here my job puts me at a huge risk. I'd totally buy the cloak too.

I am totally ordering an invisibility cloak... it is the one thing I covet... well, that and the Marauder's Map!

I loved your comments on my blog... always happy to meet another Ed (hottie) Burns fan ;-)!

Lately it seems inevitable that some big plague is going to hit. Are we really prepared? Will the invisibility cloak protect us from it?

You're worried about it...as a nurse I'm freakin' doomed! Although...I'll be the first to get any vaccine/anti-viral drugs :P

Kristin: Ed Burns is SO on my freebie list. Thanks for stopping by.

Jay: You raise a phenomenal point. All we need is invisibility cloaks! And, the way drug companies seem to be hinting at shortages, the cloaks should be easier to get!

Elaine: You're so smuggling some druggey goodness for the duty counsel office.

I call seconds on the marauder's map!

supa: I'll leave it to you and Kristin to fight it out!
