Science RULES!
« on: August 21, 2012, 10:31:27 PM »
I would just like to take this moment to point out that we currently have a remote controlled robotic tank on the surface of an alien planet sporting a laser beam that can vaporize rock at range, and we're currently just tooling it around disintegrating anything that catches our fancy just because we can.

I. Love. Living. In. The. Future!

It's not the future until we get our hovercars!

I'd also like to point out that we've got a probe that has just (or is just about to) entered interstellar space and its still sending back information....Booya!

And we already have the sexbots.  Was just reading about it in a Cracked article the other day.  Look up "Roxxxy" if you dare.

But it's still sad, obviously.
Steady on.
