    How about these ideas as examples of lateral thinking on weapon development?

    Look here

    Brilliant! Thinking 'outiside the box', whatever that means. My favourite:

    "In a variation on that idea, researchers pondered a "Who? Me?" bomb, which would simulate flatulence in enemy ranks.

    Indeed, a "Who? Me?" device had been under consideration since 1945, the government papers say.

    However, researchers concluded that the premise for such a device was fatally flawed because "people in many areas of the world do not find faecal odour offensive, since they smell it on a regular basis".

    I think that this evil weapon is actually already in use. At home I am frequently accused of this (usually after ingestion of the precursor elements, beer and curry). Those damned Yankees have already struck!
  3. But what if one leaked and the pilot came down a real sissy?
  4. It must have been deployed here as well. Last night I think :D
  5. "In a variation on that idea, researchers pondered a "Who? Me?" bomb, which would simulate flatulence in enemy ranks."

    Think they've been using my husband as a guinea pig on this one :omfg:
  6. In Robert Heinlein's book, Starship Troopers, there was a psych warfare weapon called the 30-second bomb.

    It sat there going "I am a 30 second bomb! I am a thirty second bomb! Twenty-nine! Twenty-eight! Twenty-seven!..."

    You've got to love this kind of inventive nastiness, it's a bit like doing the booby-trap part of an Assault Pioneer cadre.

    The US used the Gay Bomb against Britain during the Suez crisis as a warning to the UK to back off.

    They did a 'nagasaki' on Brighton.
  8. Seems that some of the fallout reached the ITC at Catterick!
  9. So, how exactly do you make gay men explode?

    Actually, I think I should phrase that one a little differently...

  11. The gay bomb was a failure instead of going bang it just went poof!

  13. That has already happened already has it not how else can you explain the well dress gentleman pilots of crab air? :p

  14. A combination of the gay bomb and the flatulence bomb doesn't bear thinking about.
