Clean as a cockroach

Postby fullxtension » Tue Sep 16, 2003 3:08 pm

British engineers James Auger and Jimmy Loizeau announced their "tooth telephone" (radio receiver implanted in the tooth, vibrating the signal to the inner ear) (June). Fort Worth (Texas) inventor Don Mims and marketer Ron Toms introduced a wooden "Gatling"-type gun that rapid-fires up to 144 rubber bands by turning a crank (though the rubber bands have to be hand-loaded) (March). South African researchers working in New Zealand said they are developing cockroach-shaped robots to do housework and yardwork (February).

Good.
Now maybe those weaving Lexus driving fools on their cell phones I face in rush hour traffic everyday will keep their car in their own lane.

Let's all just get totally wired and miss absolutely nothing.

I tell you.
The day is coming when chips are implanted in the brain uplinked to some satelite so you can just stay totally connected 24-7 and never miss a stock quote, news, a call from the boss or that "important" message.

"Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio?
Our nation turns it's lonely eye to you.
Woo woo woo" ...





And while we're at it: BRING BACK chewing tobacco to Major League Baseball dadgummit. Hey! Wake up! It ain't plutonium. Dang!
