BEAM TO KILL ARMY AT 200 MILES, TESLA'S CLAIM ON 78TH BIRTHDAY


A recent episode of Future Weapons with Richard "Mack" Machowicz showcased the awesome power of a new riot control device called the "Silent Guardian." This massive ray gun fixed atop a military vehicle induces the sensation of fire on the skin, making the dispersion of crowds a piece of cake. In my mind it's the sissified descendant of Nikola Tesla's "peace ray," otherwise known as the "death ray." Unfortunately, after an unsuccessful attempt to market the weapon to the US War Department, Tesla's plans were seized and locked away by the FBI for fear of public safety.

In the 2006 film "The Prestige," (my hero) David Bowie plays (my other hero) Nikola Tesla convincingly enough to make me wish that the "Silent Guardian" was both silent and deadly.

Benjy, wonderful review. It's a tribute to the wonderful prestige of this time-tested blog. You can expect this reader to continue reading "The Canals" for a long, long time. Really great stuff and thanks for the Bowie!
