[music |If You're Happy and you know it!]

In November of 2002 the U.S. National Research Council called for a massive increase in the amount of money the Pentagon spends on non-lethal weapons. The army is now looking into malodarants, substances so smelly that the miltary can use the to disperse crowds, empty buildings, and keep enemies away from sensitive areas. Monell Chemical Senses Center, a research facility in Philadelphia is providing smelly alternatives to violent weaponry. They allow vonunteers of all nationalities and cultures smell their cscents to ake sure they have worldwide dis-apppeal. Their worst orders include:
"Who Me?" which smells like the odorant added to natural gas combined with the smell of rotting mushrooms.
"Bathroom Malodor" - A nasty poopy smell that's mixed with the mell of rotting rodents. The lab also sells this smell to makers of bathroom cleansers who use it to test the effectiveness of their new products.
"Stench Soup" - A combination of "Who Me" and "Bathroom Malodor".
Researcher Pamela Dalton states that Bathroom Malodor is the most offensive smell currently offered. "We got cursed in a lot of different languages when we tested that."

LOL, right?

They've been looking into non-violent means for a while actually. Aside from reducing loss of life, these methods tend to be a lot more cost-effective as well.

I heard they've been employing some of the more outlandish things in Iraq, such as a microwave emitter that makes your skin hurt without doing it any damage. It just triggers your pain receptors.

hmmm when is your deadline for an icon?

i love the smelly techniques. i think they should make one that is a combination of wet trash and those disgusting street hot dogs and call it "NYC in August".

I worked in NYC for 16 years and have great affection for it. That being said, don't forget to add the smell of stale urine. :)

All these non-lethal weapons systems are great, but I worry about them starting to use them over here. They've already got that heat ray and the "puke gun", and now this. It just sounds like they're assembling the tools of a totalitarian dystopia type situation.
