    YOU THINK THIS IS FUNNY???????
    Wait until some punk gets his hand on one of those video projectors of yours and points it to an airplane, THEN it'll be funny won't it??? The FAA and FDA and CDRH and CIA and FBI and NSA and NBA and whatever will be up everybody's business stealing yo kids stealing yo wifes just because YOU and your wicked video pointer fetish want to have a little fun exploring the science of stimulated quantum emissions in the back yard! Then we'll only be allowed to use burning goat hair as light sources for our projectors! Is that what you want??? Think of the goats man! Millions of dead goats in crashed airplanes, but at least we had our fun haven't we! And that's only the beginning! The Canadians will look at your country and laugh and laugh and invade it in the dark because nobody can see in the dark anymore but they can because they have their fancy still-allowed flashlights and torture tubes and DPSS and flaming camel hair and take over the government! Then they will use the US nuclear bombs to bomb the shit out of everyone who looked at them funny in the past and GUESS WHAT that's EVERYBODY even the canadians themselves so the world ends in nuclear armageddon but DO YOU CARE FOR THAT??? Ha!

    I bought myself some laser gloves and now my projectors are redundant.

    In fact so is my laser pointer as I can now target 10 planes at once!

    They can't. Although video points are getting better, they will never be better than laser pointers. What you need to understand is that when you focus a point to do useful things like cutting vinyl tape or burning through jewel cases, it is the same amount of light. When you try to get a thing beam out of a video pointer, you are just limiting the light. All you're going to have is a piece of tape that just gets a little warm. Forget jewel cases completely. The Electrical Tape Cutting industry needs results that can only be had by a laser. I do know that top Jewel Case Burning companies are looking for alternatives, but they have yet to find it in the video pointer field. Sorry, Gary, I just think you're trolling at this point. This thread has gone on long enough!!!

    And, just because the emoticon is too small......

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.
