Yeah, I don't remember hearing about this before.
2008-10-31 10:57:47 AM  
I'm getting a kick out of these replies, but I don't remember why.
2008-10-31 10:58:54 AM

In before the...

2008-10-31 11:10:03 AM  
isn't this that same "beam" they were working on that would disorient people and make them throw up?
2008-10-31 11:10:50 AM  
Honest Bender,

2008-10-31 11:10:56 AM

I came into this thread. But I cant remember for the life of me who I am or why this dead hooker is on the floor.

When do I get my own little flashy memory-messer-upper thingy?
2008-10-31 11:27:29 AM  
damnit, this spoiled next weeks "The Fringe".

A team of scientists from the United States and China announced last week that, for the first time, they had found a means of selectively and safely erasing memories...

Chinese scientist: "Great... looks like we're done. I'll go back with the info to my bosses in China and you can do the same with yours."

American scientist: ~~*keEr-bLeEErP!*~~

Chinese scientist: "Hi, I'm here for the job."

American scientist: "Sorry, all the spots are filled."

How many times have you done that to her?
a couple.
A couple?!?!
Aren't you worried that you are going to fry her brain?
a little bit.

I thought the headline said "Amnesia Beans". That would be far less fearsome. "Funny, I don't feel hungry yet I can't recall having eaten anything recently".
2008-10-31 11:44:13 AM  
They already are using an Amnesia beam*.
*by beam I mean 16" baton
2008-10-31 11:44:49 AM  
The military has had this technology for years. It's just that the people who perfected it kept forgetting to tell anybody about it. Then they forgot where the lab was, who they were and where they lived.

Funny thing, one is now running for President as a GOP candidate.
2008-10-31 12:15:01 PM  
I drink your milkshake of amnesia!
2008-10-31 12:27:01 PM  
Just hold folks at someplace like Gitmo until they hit 40. None of us over 40 can remember anything, anyway.
2008-10-31 12:28:09 PM  
What the-?!? Who are you people?!? Who am I?!? WHAT'S GOING ON?????
2008-10-31 12:34:46 PM  
Didn't they do this in the 60s, too?

/Thought they did
//Sounds like a familiar story
///Not sure, though
2008-10-31 12:55:11 PM  
Eternal Sunshine for me please
2008-10-31 01:14:56 PM  

Big Beef Burrito: Wow! You're Tony Randall!

We should just dismantle the military. Problem solved.

Seriously, we should at least dismantle parts of it like this. It can only lead to bad things.

jerry2a: I thought the headline said "Amnesia Beans". That would be far less fearsome. "Funny, I don't feel hungry yet I can't recall having eaten anything recently".

I thought the same thing... "Amnesia Beans"... my first thought was, "They want you to forget the reason why you can't stop farting?"
2008-10-31 04:29:54 PM  
Regardless, if that is what they meant, then that is what they should have said in the first place. It is not on every street corner that you can just pick up a supply. So going forward, it should be red. Are you going to eat that?
2008-10-31 04:39:16 PM  
If these came out in 1980, that would explain a lot.
2008-10-31 04:54:51 PM  
Cop: Do you know why I stopped you?

Me: No.

Cop: No, really. Do you remember know why I stopped you?

Me: No.

Cop: OK. You can go.

Not new, Beam memory eraser has been around for years.

the_colonel: Not new, Beam memory eraser has been around for years.

I'm home, I'm alone, that gives me an idea.
2008-10-31 09:23:31 PM  
These are not the droids you're looking for.
2008-10-31 10:44:59 PM  
Psssht. There's a little-known segment of society that's had a memory eraser for years. They even have a magazine. It's called High Times.
2008-10-31 11:57:52 PM  
What ever happened to the old wood shampoo? Erases lots of menories.

I think I may have been a test subject for the past 10 years.
