Totally Creepy
« on: December 06, 2013, 05:16:40 PM »
No wonder so many of our fellow citizens don't like nature!

I showed this to my wife.  I am certain she will have bad dreams and wake me up tonight as she is petrified of snakes.   Human cruelty has no bounds   ;D

We do not err because truth is difficult to see. It is visible at a glance. We err because this is more comfortable. Alexander Solzhenitsyn

How is it conceivable that all our technological progress - our very civilization - is like the axe in the hand of the pathological criminal? Albert Einstein

Feds indict Klansman trying to build an anti-Muslim X-ray cannon - yes it is true.

Quote
Federal prosecutors moved forward with a terrorism case against a purported Klansman who had been soliciting money from Jewish businessmen to build a bizarre — but technologically feasible — X-ray cannon intended to secretly kill Muslims.

Eric J. Feight, 55 pleaded guilty Wednesday to domestic terrorism-related charges in a federal courtroom in Albany, N.Y., and faces up to 15 years in prison....

....“Crawford planned to create a mobile, remotely operated, radiation-emitting device capable of killing people silently from a distance with lethal doses of ionizing radiation,” according to the indictment. “Crawford’s intended targets were Muslims, Muslim-related organizations and persons Crawford believed were contributing to the demise of the United States.”...

If it is technically feasible then some defense contractor has already built one is my guess.

So, Turns Out Crocodiles Can Climb Trees

Quote
....Next, the scientists set out to collect a few observations of their own. In Australia, they saw crocodiles in trees — and spotted one individual attempting to scale a chain-link fence. In the Everglades and Central America, many crocodiles were spotted basking on the concealed lower branches of mangrove trees. At some of these sites, the only way the reptiles could have reached their resting spot was by climbing up the tree trunk itself. And in Africa, Nile crocodiles and their relatives were seen just as frequently in trees as were some birds. In many instances, these reptiles were lying on tree limbs that were nowhere near the water. One was spotted on a log 13 feet above the water and 16 feet from the riverbank. “To reach this site the crocodile would have had to scale a [13-foot] completely vertical bank and then walk amongst the branches to reach the end of the tree,” the authors reported.....

Just hook the magnetron out of a domestic microwave oven up to a horn antenna. Not worth bothring with a parabolic dish as well because of serious loss due to water vapour. I hasten to add, I've not tried it, but have once had occasion to measure path loss at 2400 MHz.
