Do you enjoy humor? How about a little whimsy?
I am an insomniac……..I start my research at 0100 hrs every day…..and during that time I run across some interesting stuff…….and some of that stuff just gets my attention and usually a snicker or two……..
First we had a fly swatter….then came the “bug zapper” and now we the ultimate in bug eradication…….
We all are well aware of how people feel about guns…….the very mention of some sort of control sends the Right wing morons into a heated, frothing at the mouth rant…….but could there possibly be an answer to the problem of gun ownership?
For those that like to “target” practice getting themselves honed for the next great uprising that some are predicting every time there is a minor altercation………we must be ready for those zombies or race roits or ISIS or immigrants with heads of lettuce….there is danger at every turn these days…….
So what is the answer?
Bug-a-Salt is a plastic gun that sprays table salt like a shotgun, in a conical spread pattern. Lorenzo Maggiore invented it to kill houseflies at a distance, without creating a mess. Maggiore sold 21,400 guns for over $577,000 on Indiegogo by September 2012. Michael Dickinson of the California Institute of Technology says flies can’t dodge the tiny salt particles but they will be protected by their arthropod exoskeleton and only be stunned. However, the inventor clearly demonstrates in his YouTube videos that flies are indeed penetrated by the salt which causes them to dehydrate and eventually die (leaving them whole for easy cleanup).
