Navy team floats idea for a 'Spacetime Modification Weapon' more powerful than nukes

quote [ In 2019, the U.S. Navy's Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) filed a number of seemingly out of this world patents that could, in theory, revolutionize not only military aviation, but just about everything. Chief among these strange new inventions is a High Energy Electromagnetic Field Generator, which if functional, could produce massive amounts of power with far reaching military and commercial implications. Interestingly, the patent also closely resembles longstanding theories posited by UFO researchers about the means of propulsion seemingly employed by alien visitors to our world. ]

...and all along we thought it was the Air Force that had all the alien stuff.

quote [ In March of 1954, with his place in the major leagues far from assured, Hank Aaron was granted a start in a Milwaukee exhibition game versus Boston, only because Bobby Thomson, the regular left fielder and Aaron’s idol, had just broken his ankle. ]

I was never THAT in to baseball, but living in the ATL you couldn't help but be familiar with Hank and his efforts in the area.

Rats love driving tiny cars, even when they don’t get treats

quote [ Rats that learn to drive are more able to cope with stress. That might sound like the fever-dream of a former scientist-turned-car writer, but it's actually one of the results of a new study from the University of Richmond. ]

In addition, the rats appear to be better drivers than anyone on the roads around Atlanta...
