    Default Lasers in the World Cup!

    Not the good sort though. I noticed the use of (green) pointers directed at players by idiots in the Argentina-Nigeria game yesterday :-(

    Monkey see, monkey do.

    As soon as this gets proper media coverage, this form of idiocy will get common.
    Just like pointing at aircraft.

    /me imagines a stadium full of 1W 445nm pointers.

    How many laser pointers would it take to evaporate a referee?

    Perhaps one use for a a pointer would be to help England goalkeepers spot the ball as it comes towards them?

    Be careful now that you’re married. You don't want to give away 1/2 of your lasers.
