8/12/04 I got quite a response on Sticky Net© implementation, which can only be interpreted as a vast stream of
ready-to-flow investment capital. I received a number of helpful comments and suggestions from our fellow
· Correspondent BW suggests adding the "Cloak of Invisibility" like the new Enterprise.
--> Sticky Net© is the only thing that can defeat Cloak of Invisibility! Once snared by Sticky Net© not
only is your opponent disabled, his position will be revealed and easily dispatched to the Grinder O’
· Correspondent PJ suggests I stole the idea from Spiderman II.
--> NO! Spiderman uses a sticky WEB, not Sticky NET© -- this is an important distinction.
· Correspondent DP writes “Sticky Net© alone may work,” --damn straight-- “but I recommend coupling
that with a negative ad campaign. Question your opponent's patriotism. Find out what it was doing
during the Vietnam War. Prescription drugs is another wedge issue you can lever up on.”
· Correspondent JW-1 (no relation) suggests adding an hourglass to the belly of the ‘bot.
--> WazBot with Sticky Net© will use only digital timing devices.
· Correspondent JW-2 (a relation) suggests HE invented Sticky Net©.

8/10/04 I was discussing the best weapons for our Robot Wars
entry with Jax. We both agree that a radio jamming

combined with an offensive spike or wedge could be
However, I am convinced that the most potent weapon
has been overlooked: the Sticky Net©, whose
advantages are indisputable:
1. Sticky Net© acts defensively by immediately
immobilizing the opponent's swinging hammers, slashing
blades, and wheels -- allowing the opponent to be
shoved into the maw of the Debilitating Hazards.
2. No moving parts are required, making Sticky Net©
3. Moreover, Sticky Net© becomes MORE effective as
the opponent tries to move, cut, or slash Sticky Net©
and the cut pieces become wrapped around axels and
If there’s a better all-round Robot Wars weapon than
Sticky Net©, I’d like to know what it is.
