A mad scientist at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, has developed a new technique for finding unexploded land mines: bomb-sniffing bees! Professor Nikola Kezic spends his days training hives of honey bees–whose sense of smell is much more powerful than that of humans– to detect and point out explosives buried in the ground. By combining sources of food with chemical explosives in a confined environment, Kezic conditions the bees to associate the smell of explosives with delicious sustenance. Once released into the wild, the bees make a bee-line (seriously this is too easy) for the land mines expecting to be fed.

Pop quiz, hotshot. There’s an unexploded land mine on a bus…

The bees can be trained in a matter of days, and Kezic is hoping that they can be used in areas that have already been checked for land mines. Teams will follow the bees with special heat-sensitive cameras. If the bees congregate in an area where no land mine had been discovered earlier, that site will be investigated by the team.

The bees are first conditioned in a tent

Croatia is believed to have around 250,000 unexploded mines in 380 square miles of countryside, remnants of the Balkan wars of the 1990’s.

    I have been racking my brain for ways to get some income since it seems pretty much impossible to get a real job these days. I was fooling around with some online affiliate programs, eBay and Clickbank and came up with something pretty nifty. It’s a tool that sets up on your website in a few clicks and integrates with Paypal and clickbank, creates your own affiliate program and pays you directly, sending the profits straight to your paypal account. It’s really pretty cool. You can do it too, if you want. Here is the info. http://tinyurl.com/d8fsxbj

    I wanted to create something that would allow marketers come together in one HUGE network to help faciliate our SEO efforts, build more backlinks for all of our sites, and in the end generate more free traffic than all of us will be able to handle. I wanted to do this together with you in a 100% ethical, white-hat way that Google and other search engines love! The idea is to to get hundreds of thousands of high quality one-way links. The good news is that this is now done and you can take advantage of it right now. Go ahead and have a look. http://tinyurl.com/cdttyqg
