In Case You Missed It: A Brief Post
From the "Could be worse. Could be a melting car" file: A glass-covered building under construction in London is shaped in such a way that, for about two hours each summer day, the building becomes a giant concave mirror and focuses the sun's rays intensely enough to fry eggs, burn carpets, and, yes, melt cars across the street. If only the Brits had had this technology during the London Blitz! Just lure a few Messerchmitts into the path of ol "Walkie Scorchie," and the war would've been over in a few blissful summer days.
