Should do the job and easier to get on the train. May not have the power to knock the thing from the side of the building though.

Or Sting.

I wonder how well balanced for throwing that thing was. I wouldn't like to get close enough to use it hand to hand without invisibility.

Me: What has the Mayor of London got to do with Liverpool, other than wind them up in the Spectator?

were_gopher: not that Boris.

Me: then Boris who?

were_gopher: Precisely.

Me: ...


Me: D'oh!

Yeah I saw that.. by weapons grade, they mean a 1cm 100watt solid-state infra-red laser capable of being mounted on a truck. Of course, that's continuous wave... if you want a pulsed version, it's more BFG rifle sized. [with back-pack batteries!]

There's a company a short walk from where I am that builds electro-magnetic coil guns, aka gauss guns, with a muzzle velocity of around 3500 ft/s, at 6000 rounds/s with a 2" inch diameter tungsten steel bullet. [they're supposed to be used in some sort of industrial process really.]

You could lift one of their guns... but you'd need one heck of an extension cable!

Yup, Agricultural machinery parts... getting around import laws since 1776. [guns were forbidden to be imported to the american colonies, so the revolutionaries listed them as 'agricultural implements'].

Mind you, still not as impressive as Operation Ploughshare. One heck of excuse to build more nukes!
