Great. Now you've got Tom Jones in my head.

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

My funny image got thrown away, making my comment seem....odd :(
2005-01-13 08:52:53 PM  
So uh.. yeah- what were they gonna put in the bomb? Far as I know there's nothing yet that turns humans into mindless sex hounds...

So is this the real reason why the military has resisted allowing gays in the military? They don't want to horny soldiers shooting each other with sexy bullets for cheap thrills.
2005-01-13 09:16:43 PM  
Test fired in SF? More likely Georgia. They do got that sodamite thing going on...

AC/DC has this idea a while ago:

Love bomb, love bomber
It's a comin' on strong
I can't take it any longer
Come a rockin' through the door

Crusin' the sky, let's fly
Blowin' on down and die
Open your bays, get ready, it's bomb's away!

Love bomb, love bomber
Don't scare no bother
Where the size doesn't matter
Come long, short or badder

Crusin' the sky, let's fly
Blowin' on down and die
Open your bays and drop those bombs away!

Love bomb, comin' on,
Love bomb
Love bomb, get it hard
Love bomb

talk about CRUEL and UNUSUAL punishment.

/not that I have a problem with that.
2005-01-13 09:47:05 PM  
That would be the greatest weapon ever.
2005-01-13 09:49:49 PM  
We may not win the war, but dammit, at least they're all homos now!
2005-01-13 09:54:19 PM  
Such a weapon could also have great applications for non-violent/non-painful torture.

"Talk! Unless you want the happy gas and a few hours with the guys from Queer Eye!"
2005-01-13 09:55:06 PM  
A bomb that makes soldiers gay? 26 military linguists kicked out for violating "don't ask, don't tell"? You do the math.
2005-01-13 10:01:38 PM  
Well I guess that would test the theory on which the ban on gays in the military rests.
2005-01-13 10:07:13 PM  
what if you dropped it on an already gay population, like San Francisco or Alexandria, Va.? Would they all be straight all of a sudden?
2005-01-13 10:21:32 PM  
Which way to ground zero?

Mahmood: Damnit! That was close.

Muhammad: They have located us. We had better move before the main barrage arrives. Let's get out of here.

5 minutes pass.

Mahmood: Help me with this box of RPGs Muhammad.

Muhammad: Why I'd LOVE to!

Mahmood: What the hell? Cut it out you camel's ass. And stop looking at me like that.

Muhammad: Have you ever noticed that these fatigues make my ass look big?

Mahmood: I swear to Allah, if you don't cut it out... Woah. Headrush..

Muhammad: You always look great no matter what you wear.

Mahmood: I feel strange. Kinda... Queer.

Muhammad: **Licks lips. Winks seductively.**

Mahmood: How YOU doin'?
2005-01-13 11:11:07 PM  
Ignore my "C" comment. I thought the date of the bomb was 1984.

2005-01-13 11:51:59 PM  
Sounds like the plot to one of my favorite movies.

This bomb's made for lovin' and you can shoot it far...
2005-01-13 11:58:55 PM  
This has to be one of the dumbest farking things I've ever heard of. "Gayifying" the enemy to give us an advantage? I've lost count of how many times I've lost faith in humanity.
2005-01-13 11:59:23 PM  
You dropped a bomb on me...bebaah!

/got nothin'
2005-01-14 12:00:28 AM  
I wonder what the hell they would have put in the bomb? Possibly some kind of mind-altering chemicals like LSD, cannabis, or benzodiazepam. Then they'd put viagra or other erectile medicine in it. That'd be my guess, although one would think it would merely result in enemy troops masturbating constantly.
2005-01-14 12:00:48 AM  
Collateral. Damage.
2005-01-14 12:02:03 AM  
Pff. Let me get this straight.

"We're going to make a chemical bomb that makes enemy soldiers unbearably horny."

"And this would change...?"

"Because then they won't be able to stop themselves, they'll all turn gay in order to find some kind of release."

"I don't think you understand. You don't need a bomb to make soldiers horny. Or did you miss that most soldiers are 18-20 years old and very physically oriented?"

"But this would drive them completely up the wall, so they start going at each other!"

"...Right. Hey, here's an idea. Why don't we just fill a propaganda-leaflet dropper with porn. It's cheaper."

"What would that accomplish?"

"You tell me how exactly the enemy force is going to fight ONE HANDED?"

"Ooh, and blind and with hairy palms to boot!"

"...? again."

From "New Scientist"

THE Pentagon considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal.

Most bizarre among the plans was one for the development of an "aphrodisiac" chemical weapon that would make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to each other. Provoking widespread homosexual behaviour among troops would cause a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale, the proposal says.

Other ideas included chemical weapons that attract swarms of enraged wasps or angry rats to troop positions, making them uninhabitable. Another was to develop a chemical that caused "severe and lasting halitosis", making it easy to identify guerrillas trying to blend in with civilians. There was also the idea of making troops' skin unbearably sensitive to sunlight.

The proposals, from the US Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, date from 1994. The lab sought Pentagon funding for research into what it called "harassing, annoying and 'bad guy'-identifying chemicals". The plans have been posted online by the Sunshine Project, an organisation that exposes research into chemical and biological weapons.

Spokesman Edward Hammond says it was not known if the proposed $7.5 million, six-year research plan was ever pursued.

That has to simply be the gayest weapon I have ever heard of.
2005-01-14 12:03:04 AM  
I love the "strangelove" references...

If you're interested, I think the movie is on Comcast OnDemand MoviePass (talk about compound words..)
