Some Thoughts

According to the British weekly New Scientist, the Pentagon is funding research to turn sharks into stealth spies that would patrol the ocean. No word yet if they'll have frickin laser beams attached to their heads.

Minutes later, Ali heard three loud blasts: a nearby Sunni mosque had been hit with RPGs.
I've been known to play Age of Empires II and Civilization III, but I never suspected those Dungeons and Dragons nerds would ever be of any use to anyone.
