The US military once tried using pigeons to more accurately guide missiles to their targets. Although the project showed some success, it was decided not to continue with the project. Pretty much they were trained to recognise certain targets and would peck at different screens to control the missile and guide it to its destination.

That's too weird to believe, but it's apparently true!  Buggedout  BounceGiggle

Yeah, when I read about it, I had to go do some fact-checking to see if it was true or not. Couldn't find anything saying it wasn't.

Looks like I am going to be assassinating another player in D&D.

EDIT: I mean his character, not the player. If he happens to fall down the stairs and stab himself in the back 27 times it is entirely a coincidence.  BounceGiggle

This is the driest novel about gay culture I have ever read. These characters are as dull as straight people, and that level of fantasy---nothing but boring homosexuals---is just asking for too great a leap of suspended disbelief.  Lookingup

All roads lead to the dog barking up the wrong tree, therefore divided we fall, but with six you get egg rolls.

No, I have definitely barked up the wrong tree, and fallen while doing long division, and I know I got more than one egg roll out of it!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
