The British Royal Navy has apparently been testing using jet suits to board ships like a scene out of some scrapped Christopher Nolan film, according to a new video released by UK-based Gravity Industries. Business Insider writes that the tests were conducted over three days on the HMS Tamar, a Royal Navy Batch 2 River-class offshore patrol ship.
Royal Marines used Gravity Industries’ Jet Suit to conduct a “visit, board, search, and seizure” operation or VBSS. Basically a marine launched from a fast boat tailing the HMS Tamar, flew through the air like a slightly askew Iron Man, and landed on the larger ship, dropping a rope below so their fast boat buddies could climb up and “visit” the simulated enemy vessel.
The whole thing is very...

One of the lesser-noticed features of the never-ending cola wars is the practice of introducing odd-favored offshoots. This is how we got Cherry Coke (1985), Vanilla Coke (2002) and Black Cherry Vanilla Coke (2006.) Sometimes, though less frequently, the odd flavors give rise to odd colors, too.
