The Army has  finally delivered  on an old promise to make a pizza MRE.    It looks like it will be available by year-end.   Here’s hoping the soldiers enjoy this new food which is made with a new method.

There are some patents which have made life more convenient,  or safer.  There are other patents which have changed the world.   Here are  some of them.

High fashion drones…

leave a comment »

One of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands  used drones  to carry its new line of handbags down the runway at the ‘Secrets & Diamonds’ eveningwear event on Saturday night.    You might be aware that our First Lady wears a lot of Dolce & Gabbana fashions,  and looks gorgeous in them.

I am no clothes horse or fashionista, being most comfortable in jeans and T-shirts,  but the drones strike me as the perfect way to show off the purses.   You don’t have to coach models how to present them or worry about the models’ clothing providing a less-than-optimum backdrop for the merchandise.   And hey, let’s face it — the use of this technology is very cool!

Linking photons for light…

leave a comment »

Scientists do some perfectly amazing things.   Even if you don’t know what the heck photons are,  you can appreciate that a group of physicists coaxed individual photons to cozy up to each other and link,  thereby producing a  new form  of light.  For me,  the most appealing aspect is that they don’t know exactly why it works.

Parking assist…

leave a comment »

If you’re lousy at parallel parking,  you need whatever  this car  has,  don’t you?

Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton  needed something similar in order to prevent her from totally screwing up  an easy  parking job a couple of years ago.    On second thought,  she is beyond hopeless  —  a driver is the only thing which will fix such incompetence.

Best free antivirus…

leave a comment »

If you are looking to upgrade the antivirus software on your computer, this is  a good place  to start.   If you don’t already have a decent one installed,  you may as well shoot yourself because these days you can pick up a bug just by visiting perfectly reputable sites.

Always remember that security of any sort costs time and money,  which you have some control over.  Failure to provide adequate security will eventually cost you much,  much more.

This man planned to blast off in his homemade rocket  to prove  the earth is a disc,  not a ball.   I hope he had a safe flight,  and will look for further intel on this venture.
