Archaeologists who dig the following up in 10,000 years will be able to use it to point out that by 2009, American society was surely in decline.
When we first heard about the Army using military-style videogames as a recruiting tool, we felt the notion of wooing American youth into joining an operation where you're meant to kill insurgents, and equating that with something you do on an X-Box, was kind of obscene.
The Air Force has stepped up their recruitment efforts with this super hi-tech Dodge Challenger (itself a symbol of decline, coming from a once-great, now-failed automaker that must go through 40-year-old car design archives to find a winning design from its past).
The Challenger Vapor features radar-absorbing stealth-black paint, not unlike what is used to mask stealth bombers. The Vapor is set to run almost silently, thanks to "stealth exhaust".... You need biometric verification to enter the cockpit.... The driver can view night/thermal vision projections on the windshield while sitting in a compartment that looks like something out of Crimson Tide.
If the driver doesn't feel like getting out of their bunker he or she can command Vapor from a remote control system (even through internet) modeled after the Air Force's Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
