Comment Like a Segway for your face (Score 1) 321

someone said it's like a Segway for your face - that person also refered to riding a Segway a being a 'Dork on a stick'.

Having said that, I would actually be wearing one if available - while riding a segway, with my pocket protector and a slide rule attached to belt, glasses taped together from the last bully beating.

There were plans for a TEA laser in Scientific American Amateur Scientist column once that claimed 100KW, which sounded absolutely astounding until you realize the beam pulses are only 10 nanoSeconds long - so an ordinary amount of energy from a 6volt battery charging up a capacitor looks fantastic when expressed as power, or energy per unit of time, cuz the denominator (time) is so small ;)
