Researchers send world’s first text message using evaporated vodka

 

 

researchers from the York U and their UK-based counterparts have successfully sent the world’s first text message – “O Canada” – using evaporated vodka.  The researchers say that the simple system can be used when conventional wireless technology fails.

Now I would have thought the Russians to be the first to do that...

 

Cheers, boopme, as I raise my wimpy cup of decaf coffee...my days of Cognac are waiting in heaven...

That's where I have been going wrong - you need to be pure in spirit !  It's the botanicals in my gin that are making my e-mails go astray.

 

I'll be off-line from roughly Christmas to the 12th January, so,

 

A Happy New Year to All

Next on the agenda, calling someone using beer!


It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Happy New Year everyone!

The autocorrect fails will be hilarious.
