How To Catch Pigeons The Awesome Way

This seems to be the solution to Spain's big pigeon problem. Pigeons have been deemed a "plague" in Barcelona,
spreading disease and pooping all over Gaudi's beautiful buildings. Tthe city is trying to catch 65,000 of the birds,
roughly 25% of the pigeon population, over the next year and a half. While some birds are being trapped in traditional
cages and relocated outside of the city, others are subject to private pigeon trappers' kooky catapulted nets.

Apple Just Bought Liquidmetal - This Is Why

According to LiquidMetal technologies, their alloys join the strength and anti-corrosive nature of metals like titanium
and stainless steel, with the benefits of plastics and composites, such as extreme flexibility and easy casting:
• 2.5 times the strength of commonly used titanium alloy with less weight
• 1.5 times the hardness of stainless steel with less weight
• 2-3 times more resistant to permanent deformation than conventional metals
• Non-corrosive
• Stain and rust proof
• Allows thinner walls in casings, with greater strength
• Allows for large surfaces maintaining thin skins without deformation
• Scratch resistant
• High thermal and electrical conductivity

These materials are already being used in all kinds of industries, from defense
to medical to sports to space—like NASA's Genesis spacecraft.
