"Night of the Comet"

A passing comet turns almost everyone in LA into piles of red dust. Survivors include a pair of cheerleaders who respond to the end of the world by shopping for disco clothes in a disco-free town. But these girls can handle the occasional zombie - another comet-related effect - with automatic weapons and karate moves. Meanwhile a camp of scientists emerge from their low-budget bunker to reveal that the effects of the comet is accelerating and they need to drain the blood of uncontaminated survivors.

The appearance of the comet was a celebration. People were throwing parties or gathering together to witness this spectacular event. As the comet traveled through the skies, it turned everyone who saw the red glow into red dust. Why this happened is not explained in the movie, however, it seems that a group of scientists were aware of the effects the comet would have and hid out in a bunker. As it happened, as much as they tried to protect themselves, the vents were left open and the scientist did get exposed to the comets effects. They were slowly showing symptoms and the only way they could survive was to find survivors of the comet, drain their blood and perform blood transfusions on themselves. Two of these survivors were sisters. One was a cheerleader who was self absorbs in her looks, clothes and boys. The other was a bit older and concerned about boys, sex and preoccupied with video games. Their father was a high ranking military officer, as a result he had exposed the girls to guns, fighting and self defense. Thanks to that exposure, the girls were able to cope with the world they had left and defend themselves against the zombies that were after them.

Even though this movie was a satire of other apocalyptic films I thought it was a great/funny ending to a class full of death and zombies.

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
