Barack Obama Deeply Offended The Bayonet Industry During Debate

Barack Obama may have officially won Lindsay Lohan over (if she doesn't change her mind again by November 6) after the final Presidential Debate, but he also may have lost the bayonet vote in the process.

While responding to Mitt Romney's charges that he isn't properly arming the Navy, the POTUS said:

"You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military's changed."

His off the cuff comment was meant to be a metaphor, meaning he focuses on the quality and capability of Naval ships, not quantity. However, some folks in the bayonet industry are deeply offended by the "ignorant" comment.

Arguing that soldiers still make good use of the hand-to-hand combat weapon, a representative from Bayonet Inc. believes they "are still distributed to the military all the time" and that President Obama "should get educated on it."

The Car Of The Future Is SOO Eco-Friendly Thanks To Leaves And Sunshine!!!

Filed under: Tech TalkMama Nature

artificial leaf technology

WooHoo!! We LOVE the Earth!!

Simulating the way leaves harness the energy of the sun, scientists have a discovered a way to use "artificial leaf technology" to possibly powers ships and planes…. and even cars!!!

According to Professor Richard Cogdell:

What you need is to be able to lock that energy up in some sort of storage fluid that’s available on demand, and that’s what fuel is. To really sustain our way of life after the oil runs out we have to be able to make, renewably and sustainably, dense portable fuels for transport, especially for aeroplanes and ships. We’re looking at photosynthesis to see whether we can learn to copy it in a more robust and efficient way. What we’ve realised in just the last couple of months is that we should be able to use electricity to power these reactions. I would be very disappointed if this wasn’t working in the real world in 30 years time.

Uhm, ya!!

We'd be totes disappointed too!!

Oil is soooo last century!! Time to be smart about the way we use our energy!!!

Japan Using Tsunami Recovery Money To Fund Whaling

Filed under: Disgusting!WhalesHunting

japan-whale-killers-hutning.jpg

This is despicable.

Japan is spending 2.3 BILLION yen ($29 million) from its tsunami reconstruction budget to fund their annual whale murdering spree hunt.

They are defending their actions by saying the money is helping to fund Japan's whaling industry as a whole, including some towns along the coast that were severely affected by the tsunami.

The money is supposed to help beef up security of the fleet to ensure "stable operation."

That basically means they're worried about the Sea Shepherd.

We think its terrible that they're pulling money away from disaster victims to go out and kill whales.

Let's hope the Sea Shepherd is ready to do what's needed of them to save the whales.
