Linkies

The Swedish are pioneers in social change...
I will never set foot in New York city again either!
What a relief!Hmm. But how will we power these massive nuclear waste cleaning lasers?
Not the periodic table, but rather the table of things that periodically go bad.
Why we all yawn together
Rape me... Not just a Nirvana song.

Yawning - I have at least one friend in the set that will never get caught in a group yawn. And they see that as GOOD thing. Sigh.

For my part, just reading about it brought one on. *rolls eyes*
Am I a sheep, or what?

I'm glad I'm not the only one that was made to yawn by the article.

Even writing about it now I'm fighting a yawn.

I was yawning, too...

And, if I understand the theory behind the lasers correctly, they actually don't use that much energy -- the thing with pulsed lasers is that they compress a small amount of energy into a very short amount of time, thus getting a large power (energy/time).

So when they say it has more energy in it than all the power plants, they mean for that nanosecond (and perhaps in the near future, picosecond). It's a cute, stupid media contrivance, which sounds impressive but merely confuses.

So sayeth PHYSICS EDUCATION MAN!

My work here is done.
