The End is Nigh! Device Allows Flies to Aim a Revolver

In a world where we prepare for wars with zombies and our future robot overlords, we have committed the huge mistake of ignoring something like the housefly. Fly Revolver by David Bowen shows just how big of a mistake overlooking flies as future weaponised adversaries can be. The flies live inside an acrylic sphere with a target backdrop.

For good measure, take a look at the names several bands whom we know and love, and compare them with what they had originally intended to call themselves. Their music would probably be the same, but we doubt we would have the same love for Johnny and the Moondogs, The New Yardbirds, or Smile.
