The disappearing act

It was reported yesterday that engineering researchers at Duke University -- go Devils! -- have developed a workable blueprint for an invisibility cloak. They anticipate the technology can be applied to many industries, but mostly they just want to wear the cloak around the lab and look surprised.

And all this time I was waiting for Duke's administration to make the men's lacrosse scandal disappear.

55 Fiction Friday wishes David Blaine would just vanish already.

Felicia started her brilliant career boiling pasta at an Italian bistro. Gradually, she worked her way out of the kitchen and into management. She’s now a consultant for a restaurant chain, where she develops ideas for the advertising division.

In a way, not much has changed. Felicia’s still tossing things up, and seeing what sticks.

RE: David Blaine. Did you see the documentary that accompanied his latest stunt? When visiting Evel Knievel he held his breath for 5 mins. A tad insensitive, considering that EK has a lung condition.

Hey, I could do with one of them there invisibility cloaks. I could slip one on and walk into the dressin' room of my choice. What? Some people pay for that sort of thing you know!!
