This is fucking insane! A deadly 'Star Wars lightsabre' (that blinds and burns and, possibly, kills) can be bought on the Internet


I read this on the news today. Apparently, a handheld laser, similar in appearance to a Star Wars lightsabre and so powerful that it can instantly blind you and set fire to your skin, can be bought online and shipped to, well, anywhere in the world, actually!

The weapon - a Spyder III Pro Arctic model with a beam supposedly 1,000 times stronger than sunlight - is marketed by its Hong Kong-based manufacturers, Wicked Lasers as "the most dangerous laser ever created". As well as blinding, burning and causing cancer, "a split-second laser light in a plane cockpit can be disastrous". Shit!

The more sadistic Star Wars fans (I loved the movies, by the way), those with pea-sized brains, are among a large number of people who have already shown an interest in getting hold of one of these highly dangerous adult 'toys', which are freely available for about £135.

Laser safety expert John Colton, director of Lucid Optical Services, said that the lasers were "horrendously dangerous and under no circumastances should they be on sale on the internet". He added that they could be "deadly" if aimed at car drivers or even pilots in planes.

The manufacturer, Wicked Lasers, promotes the 'lightsabre' on its website with these words: "Don't let the Arctic name fool you. This laser possesses the most burning capabilities of any portable laser in existence. That's why it's also the most dangerous laser ever created." It goes on: "Extremely dangerous is an understatement to the power of 1W of laser power. It will blind permanently and instantly and set fire quickly to skin and other body parts."

What the fuck! Crazy bastards!

News of the laser has sparked a flurry of excitement on social networking websites.

One person wrote: "Real lasers that resemble Star Wars lightsabres, that can burn skin, cut through plastic and ignite matches - yes please."

Another wrote: "The fact that it looks like a lightsabre is even cooler."

One more said: "I must have this. Birthday present anyone? I will KILL things, with FIRE."

The Dogs Cojones says: What a stupid species we are! How the fuck did we manage to survive for so long when there are so many mad fucks out there inventing and selling weapons? The assholes who made (and are selling) this particular weapon should be locked up and the key thrown away! No, forget that. It would cost too much to keep them alive. I have a better idea ... (grin) ...
