    Incredible, Sci-fi Railgun Takes Step Toward Reality | Fox News
    A theoretical dream for decades, the futuristic railgun -- which uses magnets to shoot bullets for hundreds of miles at speeds of up to Mach 7 -- just took another step toward reality.
    Military supply company Raytheon announced Monday that it had been awarded a $10 million naval contract to develop a way to supply enough juice to power the whopping gun -- which could someday reshape naval warfare.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    People, people... everyone knows that the Zombie apocalypse is going to happen. This railgun should do well against the un-dead.

    Of course, they come up with this with the pheasnat population at an all-time low.
