This is a shot of, uh, actually, I don't know what. I think it's the world's smallest laser, but don't ask me what the hell's going on, because I have no idea. Shit, it could be Wolverine's penis.
...the world's smallest laser has arrived. It's 30 millionths of a meter long, it could revolutionize microprocessors as we know them...
The microlaser, which was developed over the last year and a half in Zurich, is actually shorter than the wavelength of the light it emits, a feat made possible by the use of an electrical resonant circuit as opposed to the conventional optical one.
The researchers suggested that this technique could yield lasers small enough to replace transistors, leading to vastly more efficient microprocessors.
Impressive, but I don't want a small laser, I want a GIANT one. I'm talkin' Deathstar superlaser size. I want to destroy entire planets. I'll avenge you, Pluto!

Thanks to mike469x, who once stared at a laser for an entire minute with little to no damage to his eyes. Mike that was a flashlight.
Finally. God, I couldn't even tell you how long I've been looking for a decent dino skeleton in a tiny bottle. I'm lying, I actually do know how long. It's been like, the time between when I first got the tip in my inbox and clicked the link. So yeah, about 30-minutes (I ma... / Continue →
And that, my friends, is where sliders come from.
A minuscule cow with a taste for contemporary music has been named the world's smallest by the Guinness World Records book.
Guinness says the sheep-sized bovine from the West Yorkshire region of northern England measures roug... / Continue →
Note: Video is after the jump.
This is a little video of a mini cannon that's scarcely bigger than my wiener but packs an awful punch. Well, not an actual punch -- it's a cannon not a fist silly! Hit the jump to see the thing destroying a soda can, light bulb and beer mug, s... / Continue →
