    X-rays from Stickey Tape!

    For those interested in science, I saw this story and thought it was incredibly interesting. Apparently, sticky tape generates x-rays when peeled in a vacuum. Makes you think twice about using common office supplies, doesn't it?

    Wait until they get the clockwork version working and then I'll cheer.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Wow. I am going to buy several rolls of scotch tape, and then put them all together on a long stick....then I can rip them all at once. Maybe I'll glow in the dark.

    To paraphrase Steven Colbert...

    "Apparently you can get X-rays from duct tape while in a vaccum. So now poor people have a medical procedure they can afford..."

    Heh.

    An Ig Nobel prize, perhaps?

    This is awesome, by the way. Now we just need some practical applications.

    Well the article makes mention of PREVIOUS studies about this with similar findings, just not quite as remarkable.

    God I love pure research.
