I used to have a device that would allow me to "hear" ppl creepin' in the bush from upto a couple km away. Being in the beam for extended periods caused sterility as I think it was microwave-based. What the beams causes the enemy on the wrong side of the device usually gets chalked up to "That's what you get for being on the wrong side, sucker"

"according to the military" Well now I feel a whole lot safer.

This thing must use radiation to work. Infrared radiation has a long wavelength on the radiation spectrum. Microwaves are even slower. I would imagine this thing is teetering on the edge of being a microwave gun, but if it only penetrates half a milimetre is probably just a sh*tload of infrared radiation. Either way screw the evil jackbooted nazi b*stards who invented this.

edit: They have had this concept in Warhammer 40K for about 20 years. The Multi-Melta Cannon. Its the most powerful weapon in the game!

You gotta be crazy to spend 1900 bucks for an exercise bike!

You know "radiation" isn't all bad. You couldn't see without it! Visible light is "radiation". That's like when people say that "chemicals" are bad. It's like the fear of evil "bacteria".. water is a chemical, damnit. I think it said in that article that it uses milliwaves, which I thought were in the microwave range, but I could be wrong. Last I checked, microwaves weren't so good for you.

Back to bike talk.. does anyone know if it's safe to trim carbon mtn bike bars? Sparing the "carbon is bad mm'kay" stuff, plz.

Physics minor in university thankyouverymuch.. That was mostly a pet-peeve vent about people who treat words like "chemical" and "bacteria" as being wholly evil.

ps. have you ever actually played Warhammer? That game scares me. Whenever I go past one of those "games workshop" stores I always see a group of people standing around, with greasy bedhead and jogging pants, discussing Lelith Hesperax, Mistress of Death (go wikipedia).

Wrap bar with tape....cut 3/4's the way thru with a sharp hacksaw....rotate bar and cut thru the remaining 1/4 from the opposite side. This will prevent the carbon from de-lamming.

They are called miniatures. They are either pewter or plastic painted with acryllics. That old lady is made of kiln fired porcelain and enamel!

PS. The multi-melta is a terminator destroying machine. Physical armour save totally negated! The problem is its so short range that if you miss you'll get savaged the next turn. You're probably better off with a lascannon. Such is the darkness of the future... there is only war.

But that heat gun might be put to good use breaking up a critical mass. Us uptight right wing cyclists hate when people give our sport a bad name.

For 40K I have probably 3000 or more points of Imperial Guard, about 2000 points of Dark Angels, maybe 750 points of Eldar, and various orks.
For warhammer I have about 1000 points of Chaos knights
I also have a few Blood bowl teams
I also have Epic 40K, Necromunda and Gorka Morka (all since discontinued games workshop games)

I pretty much enjoyed painting them more than playing, but back when I played the game was REALLY slow and took about 6 hours to play. They released a few new editions and now it is way quicker. Every once in a while I will paint a few of the minis up. I almost have an entire battalion painted up like UN peacekeepers now.

ps. when I say 3000 point imperial guard army, that means like 150 miniatures and 5 tanks plus artillery.

Well if canada allowed CCW's that's what i'd be carrying. Also for those of you who watched Munich, there was that scene where they concealed a zip gun as a old school air pump (even had it attached under the toptube). Now that was awesome.

See guns and bikes are connected...!
