Help! I can't pick the appropriate "Real Genius" quote to use as a title for this post on this laser story.
"Ok… they’re not actually phasers, but we are going to be seeing some seriously big honking lasers. Northrop Grumman has apparently broken one of the technological barriers to development and built a laser with more than 100 kW output which should pretty much fry anything in its sights."
Here are the contenders...
A) "It's a chemical laser but in solid, not gaseous, form. Put simply, in deference to you, Kent, it's like lasing a stick of dynamite."
B) "Let's just take a step back. No, I was wrong, I'm sorry, take a step forward. Now, take a step back. Step forward. Back. And then we're cha-cha-ing!"
C) "Sir, let me take this moment to compliment you on your fashion sense, particularly your slippers."
D) "You, huh? Well you won't get away with this. Doctor Hathaway's gonna hear all about this. You'll rue the day!"
E) "OK, if you think that by threatening me, you can get me to be your slave, well... that's where you're right, but - and I'm only saying this because I care - there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market today that are just as tasty as the real thing."
I know most of those have nothing to do with the story, I just like the quotes. Vote early and vote often!
