Confucius once said, “Sharks with frickin laser beams attached to their frickin heads can be your worst friend – if not your best frickin enemy.” Or maybe that was Steve Zissou? Either way…our scientists are playing with lasers, desperately trying to screw with fusion and or rip open the fabric of space.

It’s not like we’re in the middle of any Earth ending issues like Fukushima, the upcoming water wars, or the far too gullible Bill McKibben and 350.org. Come on Bill…if you’d been reading the Lens for the last 3 years, you would have known that sending petitions to pretend liberal presidents don’t actually end wars, torture, Patriot Acts or even dare I say it…pipelines.
I mean, for Christs sakes, we might as well have a Homeland Senator calling for hearings into the terror that are the NFL bounties…but not the National Nuclear Security Administration’s funding of that awesome frickin laser – for non-military use only of course.
It’s like Gossip Cop is about the only real-world information we can handle.
Steve Zissou once said, “Nobody knows what’s going to happen. And then we film it. That’s the whole concept.”
