Laughing Bullets

Monday, July 02, 2007

New Scientist tells us about laughing bullets:
Smart Non-Lethal Bullets. These would apparently leave their targets battered and bruised but also, oddly, laughing.

These bullets, developed under a 2002 project, would have a soft nose that collapsed upon impact. Instead of penetrating like a normal bullet, they would deliver a substantial (but non-lethal) impact and also burst open to release a chemical agent - proposals include laughing gas or malodorants.
Funding for the project was cut when it was pointed out that we could have the same effect on our enemies by showing them poll numbers that indicate that we take Hillary Clinton seriously.
