    Easy anti-matter creation

    "Take a gold sample the size of the head of a push pin, shoot a laser through it, and suddenly more than 100 billion particles of anti-matter appear. The anti-matter, also known as positrons, shoots out of the target in a cone-shaped plasma 'jet.' This new ability to create a large number of positrons in a small laboratory opens the door to several fresh avenues of anti-matter research, including an understanding of the physics underlying various astrophysical phenomena such as black holes and gamma ray bursts."

    Why hello thar Mr. Fusion.

    [take a gold ball filled with liquid hydrogen. shoot laser. haul ass.]

    Note: 100 billion particles is something liek... a dozen attograms. You could stand on the other side of this jet and not feel a thing [untill the vaporized plasma jet of highly energized gold atoms eats through you]

    On the topic of completely useless information, today is World Toilet Day. I found out about this while surfing the SA gov's website on Forestry and Water Affairs. Here's the link - http://www.dwaf.gov.za/events/WorldT...ay/default.asp.

    I love the 'World Toilet Day Messages'
    a) Toilets deserve better social status

    b) Construction of toilets for all is achievable

    c) Toilets for all and all for toilets
    Poor toilet. Bottom of the social ladder. Anyone else's country doing anything for this today?
