"Hi there, Pimply Face!"
It seems to me that this kid’s problem is that his friends are assholes. My guess is that even if his acne cleared up they’d just find something even nastier to call him rather than “handsome”. Pimply Face is pretty weak insult anyway. “Hi there, Pimply Face!” But soon … they changed this ugly nickname […]

Speeders Are Timed By Robot Cop
RUTHLESS speeders, driving with one eye on the rear vision mirror for signs of a trailing traffic officer, now have a new enemy to watch out for, a robot speed meter which instantly gauges the speed of a car on the highway. The speed meter is small, and can easily be moved from one place to another. On one side of the road is an apparatus which directs two parallel beams of light, invisible to the driver, upon a mechanism on the opposite side of the road. The length of time taken by a car to intercept both beams of light is shown in terms of miles per hour on the meter.

Flying Without Wings or Motors

"SEA SLUG" Liner Floats on WORM DRIVE
COMBINING speed and comfort with modern streamline design, the "sea slug" liner employs an unusual means of propulsion. Instead of the screw propeller drive used on ocean ships, this craft is driven by a series of worm screw impellers. These impellers also eliminate the common hull design. The center portion of the ship is hollowed out for the series of four worm screws. The sides of the hull float and with the hollow screws provide buoyancy for the liner. As speed of the ship increases, the hull rises, lowering its resistance in the water.
