US Army scientists are developing a weapon which can fire a laser-guided lightning bolt at a target. The Laser-Induced Plasma Channel (LIPC) is designed to hit targets that conduct electricity better than the air or ground that surrounds them.

WOW. And I thought the Lightning Gun in Unreal Tournament 2004 was unreal.
I was thinking the same thing, but from Quake instead of UT04.
It also reminds me, mechanically, of the Arc Projecter from Mass Effect 2.
"All I say is that I think it is damned unlikely that anything like a central cosmic will, a spirit world, or an eternal survival of personality exist. They are the most preposterous and unjustified of all the guesses which can be made about the universe, and I am not enough of a hair-splitter to pretend that I don't regard them as arrant and negligible moonshine. In theory I am an agnostic, but pending the appearance of radical evidence I must be classed, practically and provisionally, as an atheist." ~ H.P. Lovecraft
