In general, I'm a big fan of technological advancement. Anything that makes life easier and also increases the chances of inflicting deadly harm upon others is a positive in my book. That's why some of the most interesting pushes forward technologically IMO are in weapons. I dunno if many of you remember an entry a while ago on a new governement crowd supression weapon that basically is a giant microwave beam. You aim it at the crowd and basically they start to heat up and soon the scorching, unbearable pain causes them to leave the immediate area of the beam and disperse. That KICKS ass. I'm also a huge fan of the lasersight that they've attached to guns. Having gone to a range once and realized the bullets don't go where I aim them, I think a laser sight is a fantastic idea and I wish I had one. All of that being said, I think it is possible to go a weee bit too far in this vein.
I introduce: The laser-guided slingshot
This revolutionary breakthough allows the Laser Slingshot to precisely split pencils at 20 feet, hit cans as far as 150 feet, and hit flying targets with a shotgun spray of BBs (with optional addon shotgun pouch).
Now, if I was just a kid, I would love to have owned this thing. Hell, I practically want one now and if I weren't planning to get myself some sort of something or other that spits bullets instead of BB's, I just might. Anyway, while it might be a wee bit excessive, if you're sitll searching for a good christmas present to buy me, you could do worse than this.
