Mosquito-killing laser -- Phaser predecessor?
A new mosquito-killing laser has been invented. While there have been many lasers that can track down missles etc, there hasn't been one until now for something we all know and hate: the mosquito. The machine was invented by astrophysicist Lowell Wood to kill large numbers of mosquitoes and prevent malaria. Watch this mosquito as its head gets fried by a blue ray gun!
Coming soon: the Star Wars Mosquito Defense System!
With this, expect to be finding phasers in your local weapons store by 2020. Laser guns will be the future, I'm afraid. Silent ammunition. Ingenious. No wait -- I forgot: Pyu! Pyu!
Live long and prosper.
