So that means it's a death ray, right?

Boxy is the new sexy.

This week's Invention of the Week award goes to Coherent, which has come up with what we've all been waiting for: a 20 W ultraviolet laser that can dice wafers and scribe large-area solar cells. The AVIA 355 nm source operates at pulse repetition rates as high as 150 kHz and gives a beam quality of less than M2 1.3.

OK, I'll admit I have no idea what any of that means. I just wanted you to think I was smart.

Here's a better suggestion: The onion you can eat like an apple. Now, that's an invention I can understand. Mmmm .... Onions ....

Yay onions! I'm glad there are other people out there who love onions as much as I do. I hope those'll be on sale in Canada. Eh.

Those onions grown in Vedalia, Georgia are probably as close as we'll get. Tasty ones, they are.
