Sharks with Lasers...



It's not every day that the Navy gets to knock a satellite out of the sky, it seems that the Army has been working on their own skills. This video of the MTHEL system is part sales pitch part scary glimpse into the future. Do you recall the mortar attacks perpetrated in London in the late 1980s and early 1990s? Imagine one (or a few) of these systems employed about a vulnerable city or asset.

The gap between science fiction and reality is not that wide. It will be a significant challenge to the futurists of today to peel back the veil of tomorrow.

Hmm, I like that...

Here is an esoteric hint; I have the same last name as your sister. If you don't guess now I shall have to kill a kitten.

That man-whore! He has a suprising lack of discretion for a lawyer...

Do you remember the summer we worked in the ship yard? It's been 20 years since I was back there, and I really never looked back, so I don't really know anything about anyone. It sounds like your family is well.

No cats were injured in the making of this prank.

Citizen Deux said...

Yes, and that whacko dropped a dredge pipe on my hand...
