Thumb Up

Robots that dissect mosquitoes, to extract their saliva glands?! Wow! that sounds really REALLY difficult!

I'm no scientist, but what about this -

* research some sugary goop which could be a growth medium and looks like saliva

* put goop in bucket

* seed goop with saliva from one parasite carrying mosquito

* stir vigorously for 2 minutes over low heat

* microwave on high for 1 minute ("irradiate")

* fill syringe

* profit!

Come on - we don't "grow" penicillin on cheese these days... must be some better way of getting those parasites to multiply in numbers...

Hero HTC phone takes a BULLET, saves shop worker's life mid-robbery

bogomips

My last HTC phone hit the pavement so many times, and walked away with only minor scratches... I think it hurt the ground! HTC sure have good build quality. I'm considering the HTC One Max for my next one.
