That IMI Loitering Munition tech looks a hell a lot like the Firefox (of the Clint Eastwood film, not the browser). Wonder if it flies without that giant airfix stand?

Ooops... sent it to the wrong printer

Anyone who works in an office knows the problem of sending stuff to the wrong printer.

On discovery of this it is usually only a matter of walking to the actual printer you sent it to to find out that it is on the wrong size paper or is black and white instead of colour

Imagine the horrors of looking out the office window and seeing your email printed out in glorious concrete several feet high!

Including the signature line "Please consider the environment before printing this email"

I have a solution

Rather than having to charge up your car every few tens of miles on long journeys what you need is a slot in the motorway lane for a few hundred yards providing power to charge the batteries.

Sound familiar...

Yup that's right, Scalextric thought of it years ago. Might just work.

Obviously without those chicaning bits though, that'd be taking it too far.
