More AMAZING Stuff . . .

After reading our piece on the “BACK-UP SENSOR”

(I mean, you did read it, didn’t you ?)

Yes, yes, of course you did ! (?)

Well, since that time, you’ve probably been chaffing for some more of the same.

Fortunately, I have a knowledgeable friend who has emailed me the following

Back-up Sensor

by ratty

Lots of the newer cars have a Back-Up Sensor that warns the driver before the rear bumper actually comes in contact with something.

Who invented the backup sensor?

I bet you think it was Ford, maybe GM, how about Chrysler, no, then how about Mercedes Benz? Or possibly the French or Italians.

No! It was a Chinese farmer!

Surprisingly it was not developed by modern automotive engineers using the latest technology. It was disclosed recently that the first to develop the Back-up-Sensor was a Chinese Farmer. His invention was simple and effective. It emits a high-pitch before the vehicle backs into something..

Here’s his first prototype‚Ķ

A most dangerous scam?

by NobblySan

There I was thinking this was the 21st century – an era in which technology is king, so can we really be……

Hunting for hidden explosives using dowsing rods.

I found this post on Bruce Hood’s blog over the weekend, and after a quick read, thought no more about it.

That is, until a follow up comment from a chap (or chapess….) called Techowiz prompted me to get off my virtual arse and click a few links.

My clicking took me to the Ministry of Truth, where apparently a campaign is underway to expose what they see as a fraudulent promotion and sale of explosive detection devices.

I won’t waffle on at length, as Bruce’s resume of the situation, and the subsequent comments on his post, have already saved me the trouble.

Now, I don’t know the Ministry of Truth, I’ve never heard of them; for all I know they could have an agenda that is self-serving and less moral and ethical than the one that they project. But something tells me that they are generally on the level, and that their campaign is a good one.

In my book, anyone making money out of selling superstitious mumbo-jumbo is pretty much welcome to try their hand, whether it’s doorstep religion, or earnest, beardy shopkeepers in incense-filled shops in Glastonbury – as long as they don’t go getting all shirty when someone questions their motives.

But this takes things to an entirely new, and thoroughly despicable, level – risking lives, costing millions and lining pockets along the way.

Have a read, starting with Bruce’s post, and see what you think.
