I saw them when i was a young lad, but never really found them funny. I laughed at them while my older brother hid under the sofa.

You're all retards. Reality, wtf go rent Alien and Aliens NOW! Aliens is one of the single greatest movies ever created, non-stop action too. And yes AvP was a silly movie. As silly as they can get.

Speaking of a current USAF laser project:


The Boeing-led Airborne Laser team exposes the Airborne Laser's conformal window during a test flight. Such an exposure is necessary for the weapon system to complete its mission of shooting down a ballistic missile during the boost phase of flight.

An engineer at Lockheed Martin's facility in Sunnyvale, Calif., inspects the Turret Ball Conformal Window on the Flight Turret Assembly for the Airborne Laser. The window is the exit for the High Energy Laser, as well as the exit and return window for the Beacon Illuminator and Tracker Illuminator lasers.

Although it is extremely accurate, the technology for it at this stage isn't that great. They'll need to spend countless decades of research and testing to produce laser weaponry in a smaller more effecient form that troops could use. Perhaps that will be possible in the year 2100.
