Way Cooler Than War

Whenever I read about something as cool as the Zephyr I just have to wonder why people waste so much time fighting.

A lightweight solar-powered plane has smashed the official world record for the longest-duration unmanned flight.

UK defence firm Qinetiq, which built the Zephyr unmanned aerial vehicle, said it flew for 54 hours during tests.

The researchers believe it is the first time a solar-powered craft has flown under its own power through two nights.

So remind me again what exactly is so fascinating about a religion whose primary tenet is that nothing worth doing is allowed?

The Zephyr and everything it represents is worth fighting for. But servitude 7th century style isn’t.
