As long as everybody is smooshing together movies and franchises and creating alternative universes, I want to see Pixar and the MCU smooshed together. Let's have the alternate universe where the old man from UP (with an eyepatch of course) is Nick Fury and his helicarrier has about 50,000 helium balloons on each corner lifting it up.

I'd think the first big step would be carriers. We did that almost 100 years ago

I think the military ought to make a dirigible that looks like an MCU helicarrier, just to fark with people.

So they put a hinge in the middle of the propeller.

Gee, if some military technology agency could build a drone that could be released from a submerged submarine, break surface and go airborne to harass and confuse military aviators and gather intelligence, and then disappear as quickly as it appeared, such a device could be quite useful.

Came here for this, leaving happily.

To dramatically increase the range of this drone, and to help conserve battery power while traveling to and from a mission site, the researchers gave it an additional upgrade inspired by the remora fish, better known as the suckerfish, which uses an adhesive disc on top of its head to temporarily attach itself to other underwater creatures in order to hitch a ride and conserve energy.

I mean, who in the fark is buying that story? It has a suction cup so it can attach itself to other watercraft. This thing isn't attaching itself to sperm whales, FFS - it's clearly meant to be attached to the hull of another ship.
