Out for summer, Out 'til fall

Okay, in case you've never actually heard this song from Alice Cooper...I promise it's worth three and half minutes of your day.



Or, how about this from Pink Floyd?

Holy Atomic Pile

I'm a huge Navy fan. Not so much for the football team--though that might just come with the territory. It's for a bunch of reasons like the old Grumman F-14 Tomcat, The Enterprise (the newer one---not one of the older ones),The Nimitz, fast attack submarines, and mostly frogmen. Yep, them. Underwater Demolition Teams and STOT were precursors to modern day SEAL teams.

[I think this is the last group of people on Earth you'd want hunting you]

But this picture of a Laser Weapon System is completely cool. The link for the article here is from CNN. Essentially, it "successfully tracked, engaged, and destroyed" a drone in flight. I know, I know...we've already done that right? Fired lasers at targets, yes. But read the article to find why this ups the ante.

Really. A laser weapon. In-freakin-credible.

Welcome to the 21 century.
