First things first, since the world is all doom and gloom today. The coolest thing you'll see today is an atomic level photograph of the sharpest manmade object in the world. Somewhat older but equally cool is this picture of someone using a laser on a chicken breast.
Doom and Gloom time again though. Get this - you know how airport security are now banning people from bringing food and drink on planes as a reaction to a FOILED terrorist plot to use fake bottles full of liquid explosives? Instead of... y'know, improving security in some manner that would cut into their profits? Get this - at the security desks now they have large containers for potential terrorists to individually pour in all the ingredients of a massive chemical cocktail... I mean for normal people to deposit their drinks of DOOM! before getting on the ten hour flight from hell.
