Made up of four pairs of molecules, and measuring just 0.87nm, the superconductor could potentially be used as a nanoscale interconnect in electronic devices, but without the heat and power dissipation problems associated with standard metal conductors."
I'm serious. I've been on flights where fellow passengers apparently subscribed to the "perfume instead of a shower" school.
And it was disgusting, and made my flight a hell, with clogged sinuses and the concomitant ear congestion that results in excruciating pain until the congestion clears (oh, it only takes a few hours). Benadryl and Claritin and any other anti-allergy drug don't help.
