Seriously? I would think that cop would be executing a field sobriety test on this guy.

Invisible 'Chameleon' Tank Finally Revealed at World's Largest Weapons Fair

Adaptiv -- an armor encasing that looks and feels as one imagines a dragon's scales to -- turns tanks into chameleons, allowing them to disappear into the environment behind them or to even look like a snow drift, trash can, crowd, or a soccer mom’s station wagon. I'm calling bullshit on this one.

First should we REALLY be using the word INVISIBLE? I mean its INVISIBLE if you are looking at it with infrared goggles. But to the naked eye it's still visible. 

Soccer mom's station wagon? Soccer moms don't drive station wagons...they drive Range Rovers, duh. 

Good thing that dude is pointing at it in the new story's photo, otherwise I would have mistaken it for that big tank sitting there.

US regulators remove two acne medical apps

In a watershed moment, the FTC this week fined two app developers who falsely advertised that their smartphone apps could treat acne. The apps, AcneApp and Acne Pwner, were sold in the iTunes App Store and Android Marketplace, respectively. The settlements ban the developers from stating certain health-related claims without scientific evidence. AcneApp’s developer has to pay the FTC $14,294 and the developer of Acne Pwnder must pay $1,700.

 LMAO! Are you kidding me? Please tell me people have not gotten this stupid. Seriously please tell me that or I will be forced to believe that the 2006 movie Idiocracy is coming true.

 You get the idea...wait...please tell me you get the idea...seriously...please.

Cliff Robertson, actor, dead, natural causes, 88

The Academy Award-winning actor and screen veteran Cliff Robertson passed away yesterday from natural causes at Stony Brook University Medical Center, just one day after celebrating his 88th birthday. Beginning his career in the 1950s, Robertson made a number of film and television appearances such as Rod Brown of the Rocket Rangers (1953-1954), Picnic (1955), Gidget (1959), The Untouchables (1959), The Twilight Zone (1961-1962) and The Outer Limits (1963) before enjoying a breakthrough as Lt. John F. Kennedy in the wartime biopic PT 109 (1963). From 1966-1968, Robertson went on to make a number of appearances in the Batman television show, and in 1969 he received the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in Ralph Nelson's 1968 drama Charly.

I was watching PT109 just last night. Great actor.

I haven't forgotten

Never forget.
