make love not war (but only if you’re an enemy)
I know this has nothing to do with customer service (well, i’m sure I could come up with an angle) or virtual reference (that one i’d have a little more trouble with) but I just had to share…
Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build A ‘Gay Bomb’(report by CBS 5)
More detailed reading of stories (found via a G(oogle)News Search) brought me to the conclusion that while at first this might have been the Stupidest Thing I’ve (officially) Ever Heard, this “Gay Bomb” would make for an awesome party trick (even if Violent-When-Drunk Guy isn’t yet drunk.) [check out the Daily Show message board posts for some interesting marketing ideas]
Seriously though- I almost applaud the military for attempting to come up with a non-leathal weapon. But if you’re not going to kill them, why not go the whole way and stop fighting them? Peace isn’t the absense of death, fellas.
While reading, I also wanted to continue to dislike the media for forgetting there are both women and men in the military just long enough to sensationalize this story but according to the Fox News article specifically mentions that the proposal says a potential “example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior.” So everyone forgot there are women in the military. Why am I surprised?
Regardless of my take on the situation, I can’t wait until Stewart and Colbert get their hands on this.
