    I know what I prefer when I have cancer and have to chose between laser-therapy and drugs...

    Uh... wouldn't the correct answer be "Lasers and drugs"?

    Yeah... And nurses! lots of nurses! Cute ones! And beer too! Lots of beer. Nurses, beer, lasers and drugs. Now we're cooking with gas...

    Wow, it's like something from science fiction! Sit in the "auto-doc" and it cures your cancer while you wait.

    May I recommend you to not go to Pink Floyd concerts this weekend... Things may go wrong there

    TOTAL side note. I went to "An evening with Roger Waters". What an awesome experience. The laser show was unreal. They had a construct with mirrors that, when hit with a powerful laser, created a pyramid. Out of that virtual pyramid came the full spectrum of RGB light like that from a prism. And it spun scanning the audience. Just like the jacket of Dark side of the moon CD (album).

    Wow... The best rock concert I've ever been to. Seriously. No, I wasn't high on LSD. But pretty much everyone else was ;-)

    I met him in 2004. L. M. Roberts of Laser FX fame introduced me to him. He's the guy who sold me my RGBB gas rig!
