Cloak of Silence

My hotheaded pal Hoovenson has had several run-ins with Born-Agains holding prayer meetings -- at 4AM -- in their subdivision. This 'cloak of silence' should be just perfect for him.

Scientists have shown off the blueprint for an "acoustic cloak", which could make objects impervious to sound waves.

The technology, outlined in the New Journal of Physics, could be used to build sound-proof homes, advanced concert halls or stealth warships.

The bad news: probably still a few years off.
