    Default Never Lock on to a Fighter Jet

    Apparently two members of the police force were out on the
    Berwickshire moors recently with a radar gun, happily idling their lives
    away apprehending alleged speeding motorists when their equipment
    suddenly locked-up with an unanticipated digital readout of 300 miles
    per hour!

    Seconds later a low flying Harrier jump jet hurtled over their heads.
    The police lodged a complaint with the RAF over the damage to their
    radar gun. The RAF pointed out that the damage may have been much more
    severe as the Harrier's target-seeker had locked on to the 'enemy' radar
    and triggered an automatic retaliatory air-to-surface missile attack.

    This is too funny. A little hard to believe, but funny nonetheless.

    Good one Jim.

    I tried some news searching earlier this morning and only came up with anecdotal references.

    Makes for good story to tell around the camp fire, though. :wink:

    They should update their soda pull-tab myth now if they haven't already. McDonalds is actually collecting them.
