Within a few minutes, they run all over your body to shave the desired areas, then return to some body part where you can suck them back into the device.


Yeah, but you know they're going to malfunction every now and then, and people are going to turn up to work as smooth as a newborn baby. If it happens enough times, it'll catch on as a fashion statement, and everybody will go round with no hair whatsoever. It'll be impossible to tell the difference between male and female amongst the more androgenous-looking ones, which will fuel people to go to extremes to make themselves look manly or womanly, or drive all people to agree on a standard gender neutral pronoun like the Chinese do.

I read that as files, and spent a while trying to figure out what you meant in relation to Microsoft Windows :oops:


I also read that as files.

Thing is, why just flies? Bees, moths and wasps also have the same problems. Engineer all the insects, or conversely, make windows that somehow appear opaque to insects.

Mind you, it won't stop that one fly I saw last week, which was doing its darndest to try and fly through the obviously opaque white ceiling.

I really hope they can make fusion happen.

A way to reduce human fertility world-wide so that the human race (and the rest of the dependent species) will have a future...

I've got it, why hasn't anyone thought of this before? Flying fucking cars! Gosh, that would just be really keen.

We have flying cars, they're called helicopters.

Artificial noses that can detect trace amounts of chemical compounds, allowing them to combine with learning software to detect such things as trace amounts of explosives, landmines or cancer.

Will anyone having such a nose feel a strong urge to bark and chase cars?

It's more the pissing on the new furniture that will be an issue.
