    We had a new manager when I was a British Aerospace Guided Weapons back in the '60s who was an absolute shit, so to take our revenge we rigged up a frequency generator running at about 16Mhz (just too high to actually hear) and pumped it into his office via a rather powerful amplifier. After a month of very bad headaches he quit for a 'less stressful' job. :)

  13. During the Dhofar war,we were sent,from UK,a Psyops team,commanded by a Cav officer who was ex RAC Para Sqn.One of their ideas was to play propaganda,from large loudspeakers,over the border,at the enemy.When this was tried,it did attract a good deal of mortar/arty fire,and was not universally popular.However the recorder/playing kit was small,so we recorded a particularly fierce small arms contact,This was then played during an ambush.The enemy ran away from the noise of firing,and towards us.It works well once!
