Comment Re:Ill placed worries (Score 1) 425

If only I could have skipped my senior year. By the time I was a junior I could tell you the two tracks that I wanted to go Mechanical Engineering or Computer Science. More likely I would have taken the same class I did in community college. In fact I don't think that any thing would be bad except I would have hit the job market a little earlier when they where really paying money and I wouldn't be in the slump that I am in now. I hope this comes to every state so my kids can make it on being a good test taker like there dear old dad. :)


Zombie Pigs First, Hibernating Soldiers Next 193

ColdWetDog writes "Wired is running a story on DARPA's effort to stave off battlefield casualties by turning injured soldiers into zombies by injecting them with a cocktail of one chemical or another (details to be announced). From the article, 'Dr. Fossum predicts that each soldier will carry a syringe into combat zones or remote areas, and medic teams will be equipped with several. A single injection will minimize metabolic needs, de-animating injured troops by shutting down brain and heart function. Once treatment can be carried out, they'll be "re-animated" and — hopefully — as good as new.' If it doesn't pan out we can at least get zombie bacon and spam."
