I am taking this moment to shamelessly plug two stories from last week. Both Renee Passal and myself profiled the Superior-based Genesis Attachments.
The company supplied the gigantic steel shears used to cut the bleeding Deepwater Horizon oil pipe last Thursday.
For me, doing this story brought out the unavoidable side of my imagination that creates terrifying, ocean-dwelling robots armed with savage instruments of war. (Not that they truly exist, but if they did, we humans could outfit them with some crazy shit).
Admittedly, Passal with WDIO had the story first. And I’m not saying that my version is better. However, think of it this way:
Could you resist a story about gigantic, robot-controlled, underwater cutting tools?
