Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Yeah yeah, what ever........

    Origin
     
  2. Lol - busted

    OS
     
  3. I read about this in the Metro, they said you can pick up the drug residue from banknotes, coins, door handles or pretty much anything. So using the machine to target people to search/question will still be pretty useless considering how likely you are to come into contact with contaminated objects.

    Another waste of cash then, the government will snap it up.
     
  4. Whats the point?
     
  5. I say Hang Her :)
     
  6. The point is that the machine is so sensitive that it can't distinguish a user from someone who handled a contaminated banknote.

    Another expensive waste of money then!

    Actually, Mythbusters tested whether eating poppy seeds could make you test positive for opiates, and it's true.
