I see these as being the most viable at vacation hotspots/tourist attractions. Where incidentally there are a number of similar options already.

US navy electro-cannon test successful

It could have space exploration uses. Attach a larger one to the ISS, have it charge an enormous battery for a day then shoot a probe put past our solar system. I dunno any of the sciences behind these kinds of things, but I imagine with enough power and space vaccum you could reach insane speeds.

So you mean to tell me that people are downloading a leaked Alpha version of a M$ operating system when not a single one of the retail OS's that has come out has been worth a damn in the beginning? How the hell could you think that an alpha version of new M$ anything could be better than even the crap we know as Vista? The brilliance of people amazes me.

YouTube biker clocked at 189mph

ZX636 here

I regularly had my bike pegged at 174mph (actual speed more like 160mph or so with the crap calibration most bikes have) and never once endangered anyone but myself. Like others have said, it's all about the rider. If the rider knows what he/she's doing bikes are the safest thing on the road. Nothing has the handling and response time of a bike.

@Anon @matthe

just cause they have a physical defect that makes them short, doesn't mean they don't have most of the same career choices regular size people do. Last I checked most office chairs have height adjusters. Hell my job as a Sys Admin might actually be easier if I was that size since there is the occasional need to crawl around in tight spaces.
