Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

ScienceDaily: Cars, planes and many electronic products are now built with the help of sophisticated assembly lines. The creation of such an assembly line at molecular level has been a long-held dream of many nanoscientists. "It would enable us to assemble new complex substances or materials for specific applications," said Viola Vogel of the Laboratory of Applied Mechanobiology at ETH Zurich. In a paper published in the latest issue of the Royal Society of Chemistry's Lab on a Chip journal, ETH researchers presented a molecular assembly line featuring all the elements of a conventional production line: a mobile assembly carrier, an assembly object, assembly components attached at various assembly stations and a motor (including fuel) for the assembly carrier to transport the object from one assembly station to the next. The line is around one-third the size of a human hair.

This is going to put trillions of nano-workers out of work!

Since we've identified the specific gene associated with Khazar predisposition for breast tumors, it can be a rather insidious tool to curb Zionist expansion. Grants, anyone?:]

At least there'll be a production line to supply conservatives with ----- implants.

Are you allowed to watch Fox news? It's mere existence seems to be affecting your sanity.
