Meanwhile, In Semi-real Life

Army of the Dead?
In a December mass mailing to officers no longer enlisted, the United States Army encouraged some 5,100 to return to active duty.  Of these, 75 had been killed in action.

No word as to specific incentives offered to encourage the dead to come back . . .

 . . .

While they can’t raise the dead, the US Army has been investigating technology which gives their troops a fighting chance in battle.  From sensors reporting real-time troop injuries and locations to medics to body armor reminiscent of that visualized by Robert Heinlein in Starship Troopers (the book, not the movie), Space.com reports several improvements to American fighting troops’ gear just over the hill.

A Pox on You?

Already responsible for cold sores, chicken pox and shingles, the Herpes I virus is now in the running as a cause for Alzheimer’s disease.

So . . . it’s not all that LDS you did back in Berkeley. 🙂
