The Vienna University of Technology has perfected the ability to produce 3D structures the size of a grain of sand like the one above. These tiny replicas are made using highly focused light beams and resin. The process is called Two Photon Lithography and the detail is amazing. Can't wait to see the practical applications for this.
Bacon, bacon, bacon we are surrounded by it from the cradle to the grave. Onesies with bacon on them for the little ones and a bacon coffin for the final send off. If they make it we will come, and buy it.
Yes, some are claiming the coffin is a hoax but the company swears its the real deal.
Who wouldn't want a sauna in their pants? Get yours from Amazon. Here's a testimonial from one of the reviews:
Like a lot of guys, I sometimes have trouble getting a good crotch sweat going. Wrapping my nethers in plastic wrap and a dozen freshly baked Hot Pockets only goes so far. So, as soon as I saw this magnificent product I knew I must have it. The friendly orange hue and easy-to-use velcro attachments greatly appealed to me, and I was very pleased to see the roomy 54" waistline!
In a stupid to the nth degree move the state of Ohio Senate is considering a bill to allow phone companies to get rid of land line service. Now, aside from the fact that there are still places in the civilized world where cell reception is thready and/or non-existent, what about having a choice? Every time choices are narrowed for the consumer cost goes up for them (us) as well. Corded land lines will work when the power is out and they do not have to be recharged. Emergency services can track an address through a 911 call from a land line too. Really, what's the rush, other than making points with the industry for election time of course.
