Pentagon Seeks Screaming Pain From Above Ability

I'm sure you've all heard of the Active Denial System before, or as I prefer to call it, the Pain Ray. If we are to make martial technologies, we must at least be honest about it. The Pain Ray is usually mounted to a truck or ground or what have you and is meant to disperse crowds, demoralize the enemy and ask the really, really tough questions of knowledgeable persons.

Now, the boys at the five-sided war machine seek an airborne version of the pain ray. An air-to-surface pain ray, if you will.

Five years, max, before the pain ray sees domestic application.

Rocket Scientists Annihilate Mosquitoes with Lasers

Neo-Luddites and Modern Primitives are big fans of saying that technology is intrinsically dangerous, a dehumanizing force leading us to an inevitable nightmare scenario equal parts the nightmare futures of Terminator, the Matrix, Gattaca and Pluto Nash. But today, science showed that it is still and always can be a force for good.

How good? How about shooting goddamn mosquitoes out of the air with a laser? That's awesome, I don't care what you say about it.

Naturally, there are better reasons for this technology then reducing one of the most annoying, anti-BBQ insects on Earth into scorched bug bits. It can help with the 1 million deaths every year caused by mosquito-spread malaria.

Which is something we can all get behind. Unless, of course, you're a peak population adherent. But we can't please all of our doomsdaycults, can we?

Everyone else has these obama renderings and I've never seen a crowded bandwagon that I didn't mind elbowing onto.

Tide Turning in Evolution Debate

One of the most heated theaters of battle in the Culture Wars has been Evolution vs. Intelligent Design/Crazy Invisible Man Science-ish Stuff. Conservatives in Texas have lost a fight to include critiques of evolution in school curriculum.

from the Austin News:

The Texas vote on evolution was in the crosshairs of both state and national media this week because textbook publishers cater to Texas because of its high-volume purchases. If Texas chose to make significant changes to the science standards, other states would likely be forced to follow suit. The standards, once approved on final reading in March, will stand for 10 years.

Is this a fringe benefit of President Obamas' ascendancy? Signal of a change in the tide? The death knell for the Religious Fanatic control of America and its' society? Maybe me overreacting to common sense prevailing finally? Who knows?

Troyvision 1/10/09

This edition of Troyvision has a little bit of everything. Failed pole dancing, stampeding dolphins, Robocop rap, kittens on a slide, kazoos, botnets, Darth Vader, bean burritos, blast knuckles and weird dresses.

What more could you want?

Denise Juneau and Montana Becoming Less Backward

I'm buying into the hype. At New West, I have a new blog post up discussing the recent swearing in of Denise Juneau. There's been a lot of talk about a New Day for Native Americans and Montana, and I'm drinking the kool-aid on this one. Mostly because it's a good thing, but I think you can read the post to get that idea.
