I can only imagine the author of that article was busy clamping electrodes to their nipples while they were writing that piece. And maybe drooling a little.

Just get it over with and f*ck the laser already. Jesus Christ.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: nmrsnr: The reason laser weapons are not particularly practical: Retroreflectors.

They are also the only weapon that can be defeated by sufficiently white paint.

From what I've read that's not a serious concern as the lasers are powerful enough to simply burn through white paint and reflectors are both too heavy and too hard to maintain. A coating reflective enough to bounce a 30 kw laser wouldn't stay clean or unscratched long while exposed to the elements.


I'm not taking any chances. I've already modified my car.

Well, if the guy was holding a My Little Pony doll instead of a machine gun, and on a desk chair instead of a scooter that would be your average FARKer.

Egoy3k: Yeah until they program the targeting computer to aim at your face through the windshield or side windows.


Yeah ... they like to avoid mentioning that they can burn through the driver much faster than the engine block on a vehicle. Too icky.

So as long as the enemy uses drones with a matte finish, stick to the flight plan, on clear days and maintain a constant speed, they don't have a chance.

'real lasers are invisible'

You know what? fark it. I don't care anymore, just say whatever you think is correct. Make definitive statements about shiat you don't understand and speak with authority about them because who gives a shiat anymore? fark your journalistic integrity, fark your viewers or readers fark it all, doing shiat like research is farking work and fark that.

The writer: "Allison Barrie is a defense specialist with experience in more than 70 countries who consults at the highest levels of defense and national security, a lawyer with four postgraduate degrees"

Seriously? Has she no sense of shame about writing such drivel?

Jubeebee: like shooting a .50 at a sparrow.


I'm betting this would also get the "Fox Firepower" writer very excited.

"similar to when folks use a magnifying glass to start a fire while camping"

Lol the author fried ants with a magnifying glass and the editor thought it would be a bit too graphic for fox news.
