So... if I stick this beetle in my PC, it will become ultra-fast?


Mhm. My logic is undeniable.

More like a friendly reminder. Brings to mind an exchange from a little known John Cusack movie called The Jack Bull that takes place as two men are riding through one of the most picturesque valleys on Earth:

Woody: Whaddaya make of all this?
Myrl Redding: A church with no roof. Ya got the Almighty braggin' his head off.
Woody: Yeah. Whaddaya figure he's sayin'?
Myrl Redding: "Remember who did this. Don't get too big for your britches." I guess.
Woody: Fair enough.

Valve has actually known about these Beetles for a while. Remember how in HL2 EP2 you had to kill the beetles and capture their skin? I heard that they were actually real beetles and you were controlling robots deep on the caves of Brazil while they profited off of the Beetles from Intel. Intel will be introducing this technology with the 8nm revision of Zensmere I'm guessing.

What this means is that by random chance, the beetle synthesises its chitin strands in the exact structure which we were trying to arrange carbon nanotubes.

If you don't know, there are tonnes of research projects that pretty much go like this:
1. Find bug/sea critter
2. Stick in a blender.
3. Separate junk.
4. NMR and MS your heart out to find out what 'cool' things are inside.
