    They are incredible but the color is added, if you parked your space ship out there and took a look you wouldn't see that.
    You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?

    Cool view of the far side of the moon.

    "Researchers at the University of Surrey's 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) managed one terabit per second (Tbps) - many thousands of times faster than current data connections.

    The head of the 5GIC said he hoped to demonstrate the technology to the public in 2018.

    Ofcom has said 5G could be available in Britain by 2020.

    At 1Tbps, it would be theoretically possible to download a file 100 times the size of a feature film in about three seconds. The speed is more than 65,000 times faster than average 4G download speeds.


    "5GIC director Prof Rahim Tafazolli said: "We have developed 10 more breakthrough technologies and one of them means we can exceed 1Tbps wirelessly. This is the same capacity as fibreoptics but we are doing it wirelessly."

    There must a be a limit to the amount of data that can be transferred between two points in a given time. I wonder what that is and how far this test is from that amount.

    We will have a better idea of what's possible once the telcoms have everyone on data cap plans.

    In recent years, Lockheed has gotten increasingly involved in a variety of alternate energy projects, including several ocean energy projects, as it looks to offset a decline in U.S. and European military spending.
    So now that the military-industrial complex is getting in on the game maybe conservatives will suddenly become cool with alternative energy projects?

    They're basically claiming they have it dialed. It will be a different world if it's true.

    How does anybody who's sleeved out even have a job that allows them to afford one of these? Lol. Kidding around, but visible tattoos does make it tough and most high paying employers still aren't cool with it.
