    Ok now this is scary. :mommy:

    Well as the article says the project did not get very far and never got funding from the pentagon, but it's a pretty interesting idea though. Just imagine in Iraq dozens of insurgents jumping at each other in sexual frenzy while the US troops desperatly try to get them off themselves and each other. :D

    Seriously though I can't imagine what kind of people would actually waste time/money to research something as silly as some of those mentioned in the article. :rolleyes:

    I read somewhere else about an idea of coating the bullets in pig fat and loudly proclaim this fact. This would then make the more religious insurgents much more careful as, in the mind of the person who came up with the idea, they would go to hell if they died by a bullet covered in pig fat according to the Koran. I am quite sure this idea did not come from the military.

    Aha.. but what if the enemy deploys a division of raging feminists ? Didn't think about that one, did you Uncle Sam ? :D

    Read about this in another forum already. Guess what? If they dropped a Tactical Gay-Bomb to San Francisco no one would even notice the different -at most they would get a influx of big, ugly, half-naked men ready to hump each other. :spin:

    (Said the same there too, btw)

    Good thing they didn't implement that, else the muslims would find a way to send our souls to our hells.

    In related news, the Ferraro corporation (the maker of Tic Tacs) has opened 200 new stores in the Middle-East....

    The first thing I did after reading the article was look at the date. It HAD to be something published on April 1, I thought. Nope, I was wrong; this is not an easter egg.

    Scary!

    @Joacqin: However came up with this bullet idea didn't read the Kur'an very carefully it seems :grin:
    For everyone's information, no, the Kur'an doesn't say that dying by a bullet coated with pig fat sends a Muslim to hell. And for good reason too: there were no such things as bullets at the time!
    The people who come up with such ideas should be sent to the moon. The increase in average IQ level on our planet would go up dramatically.

    This thread belongs more in "Post your jokes here" than in the Alley!

    @ Art – ROTFLMAO!

    Bah, you just can't make anyone happy nowadays. I applaud the military for creatively looking at non-lethal methods of combat. Although, now that I think about it, the point is to probably kill the enemy while they are distracted by all of the anal sex, bee stings, and bad breath. Well if it saves one U.S. soldier I'm all in favor of it.

    I don't like that one. What if the target is allergic to wasp stinges? You can't call that non-lethal and a plain bullet in the skull or torso might even be better.

    These ideas make me think of old GI Joe and Superfriends cartoons. Maybe they'll get their ideas from roadrunner next -anvils must be cheaper than bombs.

    And snopes has an article on the pork fat thing.

    Hehe, they could throw just a bomb of ordinary explosives on enemy troops and simply kill them by blowing them to bits (what has worked reasonably well in countless wars).

    But that evidently isn't enough for the pentagon braniacs - they probably consider homosexuality as something worse than death.

    I tell you, that project is going to make history in gay porn, probably titled like "Gay bombed", parts I to XVIII ... :p :p :p First Graner & Lynndie SM Inc. and now that ... embarassing.

    And consider the potential for variations: The "Queer Bomb", turning once grim enemies into cross-dressing transvestites ...

    US weapon designers must really be oversexed. Considering the laughable outcry about this utterly unattractive pierced boob, it must be the general US puritanism ... maybe the country shouldn't be all that uptight: loosen up, folks. :shake:

    I'm starting to believe they actually tested one of those bombs in Amsterdam some time ago. :D
