New Technology: Smellevision

Speaking of holding your nose, the AP reports that a new service from NTT Communications Corp will allow movie goers to experience films with their sense of smell, in addition to their usual faculties.

This olfactory technology was made available for home use last year, for limited applications.

Imagine if one were able to “enjoy” the State-of-the-Union State address. The predominant scent for such a broadcast is obvious. Beyond that, I can only guess at a burnt parchment stench to further the notion that everything our esteemed Emperor suggests “to protect us” will further torch the Constitution.

Artus Register

A self-described "objectivist-leaning libertarian deist," Artus Register became a full fledged libertarian after the 2000 elections. An unapologetic freedom-lover, enemy of the state, trouble maker, and permanent subscriber to the "ain't a dime's worth of difference" ideology, Register enjoys few things more than illustrating the hypocrisy of the so-called "left" and "right." When not bellowing from his cyber soapbox, he enjoys Cuban tobacco, good whiskey, and better debate. He lives with his wife in the American southeast where he works as a privacy consultant.You can contact him, if you must, at minarchist[at]
