    I can imagine the scene now, BigPoppaFury:

    "Trixie, what is that sound?"

    "What sound, Helen?"

    "That sound like a hand wanking off an LPSG cock?"

    "Oh, THAT sound! Wow, it sure is impressive, isn't it?"

    And they close their eyes and reach out their hands searching for you.... :biggrin1: :cool:

    I want one too. I remember reading last year how they solved the equations for bending light. They mentioned "applications" in the article but didn't get into specifics. Wonder what they're thinking...beyond invading girls' dorm shower rooms?

    Sorry, how does Harry Potters invisibility cloak work?

    I'd prefer that this kind of thing was exclusive to military needs if/when it does come about.

    Don't get too excited just yet. To the minor extent that this phenomenon works, it probably works both ways. That is, if they can't see you, you probably can't see them either.

    Perhaps, perhaps not.....I assume you're basing that on the bugblatter beast of traal theory?

    These guys seem to have no probs...hardly practical though.

    Howstuffworks "How Invisibility Cloaks Work"

    Here's some...:smile:

    Thank you. Interesting theory about planes. Wonder if they could apply it to submarines or would the surrounding water alter the effect?

    That "how stuff works" thing is entirely different; different principles, different effects. The only similarities are that "invisibility" and goddamn Harry Potter are invoked.

    I know, but this is a lighthearted thread. No need for pedantry...:smile:
