They tell you how to make: a USB flashdrive within a battery ( the battery does work ), a listening device within a book, a communicator that sends sound over a laser ( by itself it isn't great, but think of the possibilities . . . . ), a chess set that when the pieces are moved correctly, a box unlocks, an alarm that goes off with your recording when an object is moved, that cellphone thing, a survival kit, hollow-bolts, self-melting objects ( like keys that melt on your command ), and invisible-ink printers. That is a mouthful, so subscribe to the digital edition ( like me ) and get it all in a nicer format. I did not intend that to be an advertisement, but it came out that way.

The communicator over a laser can be adapted to become a listening device when bounced off a window....etc. Yes, this was definitely one of the more fun issues I have gotten :-)

I was too young in the 70's to get involved in most of the stupidity (Thank goodness!). I can just see myself in polyester, groovin to disco, in the ineterest of getting chicks...SCARY!

Disco and polyester. I've always been sypathetic to Punk and I love Southern Rock. I usually wear cotton, wool, or leather. But if it took polyester and disco to get chicks, I probably would have given in. Thank goodness I was more a part of the skater scene as well as the early grunge scene.

Oooh. That's even worse than polyester/disco! I'm not sure I'd stoop to that level to get a girlfriend. I guess I'd just have to wait till they grew out of it.(or pursue a nice nerd-girl).

no, don't worry, the type of chicks that think they're ghetto aren't "attractive"...

i'm just glad there are some normal people at my school too =-)

As one Ziggy cartoon put it (picture him standing with his hand on his back): "Oh, I think I just slipped a disc-o...."

. I was the guy with bell bottom jeans, tie-dye t-shirt, and a 'Fro. Cruisin' for chicks in my Dodge Maxivan with Peter Frampton in the 8-track. . Peace, Bro.

If that's how you get fiber, try adding some syrup. It'll taste better...

You don't stay full of any kind of fiber for long.....it kind of "goes right through you" and needs constant replacement ;-)
