Stealth Donkey

The Taliban got the target all wrong! Donkey have next to zero radar cross-section, they were actually targeting airfield. The fact that it toke a keen eye sniper to take out the incoming (instead of a radar guided missile) PROOFS that the Taliban have an advantage in terms of Stealth Tech!!!!

DARPA need to investigate some kind of Anti-Stealth/Donkey death ray to counter the new Taliban threat.

It will never work in people

Had a read. In order for it to work, the chemical has to be concentrated in its head. AND it has to be exposed to the UV light. This works great for worms since they are see through. But in people we have something call a skull which is pretty good at shutting out light.

But two thumbs up for Canuck Science, now back to the igloo, got to get this Global Warming thing happening faster....

(Disclaimer: I'm a Canuck as well)

Kingston's thumb drive is tiny Tardis


Tales of Flashdrives

I think there is a story here some where. A Reg Poll on the worse thing that has happened to a flash drive. Washing up is fine, but really what else has happened to your flash drive: i.e. How deep was that mud hole, what body cavity did you dig that flash drive out of and the burning question that I have is; can you use a flash drive as a marital aid and save my love life. Please post pictures.


Paris Hilton

Yes, But

Who cares how big the drive is. The real metric of any thumb drive is "Will it Survive a Tumble in the Wash". No reviews ever does it. But it is a real saleing point!

Paris, ' cause all drive needs a tumble.
