Well, Mr Fusion, flying cars, dehydrated pizza, double ties, hoverboards. 2015 is getting closer everyday. Come on science!

We might end up with the double ties.

sounds like the danger isn't from explosion, it's from electrocution

Before you begin, let’s be clear about one thing: the ultimate goal of all fusion efforts is “break-even” – a device or system that is capable of generating more energy than it takes to get the reaction started an sustained. But the devices that you will learn about here will never reach that exalted goal. To the contrary, the input/output ratio is pretty paltry: it takes about 100watts of juice to generate a reaction that produces less than a watt of its own energy.

he's test-firing "smart" rounds that don't need to be perfectly on target; they have proximity sensors that explode in the vicinity

I saw this gun a long time ago, I think.
The round is set for distance by the laser rangefinder, where it explodes like a fragmentation grenade.
Bad guys are hiding behind a wall, shooting at you from a window? Just lob the round into the room and take out the whole nest.

I've seen a truck fall over like that a couple decades back. It was a much smaller truck though.
Remember this?

Since this particular rail line was down for maintenance on the week this picture was taken there was no chance of any rail traffic. One of these fire-fighters posted his little joke on Facebook but his picture went viral without his explanation.

I thought it was just bad planning by not having a hydrant on both sides of the track.

The purpose of those covers are to prevent damage to the hoses from heavy vehicles like firetrucks running over them.

For long term data storage, this thing could be huge. People still buy enormous tape robots to keep bulk data "online".

However, as the article points out, no one is going to use these in consumer applications. I, for one, do not miss rewinding or side flipping.
I'd use that tape for back ups. Though I rather doubt it'll make it to consumers. Businesses and such will likely use for long term storage, like email servers.

doesn't magnetic media have the same long-term storage issues as everything else?

i.e. the stuff physically doesn't last very long?
