A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE


Wouldn't it be nice to be invisible sometimes?

You know, like a fly on the wall that can see who's doing what behind your back. Wouldn't it be great to be able to disappear when you see someone approaching you'd rather avoid?

Well, it seems scientists have developed a way to cloak things at Duke University. It works like a mirage, where heat causes the bending of light rays, to block out the road ahead behind an image of the sky.

Then again, nature has done a pretty good job of letting some species blend in with their surroundings, like this stick bug (I guess that's what you call it).

Sometimes it's good to blend in, staying under the radar of hungry predators wanting to end your existence.

OK, Capt. Kirks, what would you do if you could be invisible?

It would be a very lonely existance because you would find out about the true nature of all those close to you. Some things are better off left unknown.
