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.

  1. The cloak of silence may not be ready, but the cone of silence is.

  2. Great! Because Hoovenson's Born-Agains are real "coneheads."

  3. Speaking of Born-agains reminds me; whenever I donate blood, I'm asked if I've traveled outside the US within the past three years. when I say 'yes' I'm often asked if I'm doing Missionary work in Philippines. They don't realize....we are so spiritually bankrupt here that the Filipino Catholics should be coming here to be missionaries to us.

  4. Real sorry to hear that. Those "coneheads" are among those Born-again Christians who give Born-again Christians bad reputation.
