Yet another Death Ray.

July 01st, 2012 by Bookslinger

I thought we already had a death ray. But here’s another one.

Technically, it’s a “Laser-Induced Plasma Channel, or LIPC.”

Oh well. I suppose there is a strategic purpose for having more than one kind. Just as a fisherman has more than one rod-and-reel combination for going after different fish; a golfer’s choice of golf club depends on the distance to the hole and the type of terrain; and the hunter selects a rifle and ammunition combination based on the type of animal to be hunted.

I’d like to hear back from you married guys if the “a golfer needs more than one club” analogy works when your wife asks why you need another rod/reel or another gun.

The Resurrection of Spock, the Looting Lepers of Mars

September 02nd, 2011 by Adam G.

John C. Wright hilariously essays to write about the supposed opposition between religion and science, and the nature of science fiction. His definition of science fiction is close to the true one, which is that science fiction is the imaginative fiction of the myths of modernity. (more…)
