The soldiers of the future will apparently be patching themselves up on the battlefield and soldiering on, thanks to the latest invention announced by DARPA - a fluid that can fill wounds and stop bleeding.
Those splendid brainboxes at DARPA* - who are to ordinary insane scientists in their dungeon laboratories as platinum-selling popsters are to teenage-saddo garage bands - have done it again. This time the wildside-walking wingnut warboffins are looking for a sort of medical equivalent of DIY spraycan sealant, which troops could use to patch up themselves or their buddies when wounded in combat.
* polyfilla = "spackle"
