The Gay Bomb

There are often times when reality can seem infinitely less real and much more amusing than comic fiction.

This video supplies a prime example.

    Marie –

    I can see it now: “Achmed, I will no longer be known as Mohammed. From now on, I am Bruce! Now put down that RPG and bring your sweet cheeks over here…” :-)

    Must be a military budget surplus: in one of the mysterious Pentagon wings, we see that the important work continues…http://www.wired.com/gadgets/miscellaneous/news/2007/05/binoculars and http://www.freakingnews.com/Sharks-Pictures–948.asp and http://www.metro.co.uk/news/article.html?in_article_id=44914&in_page_id=34. Some of the blogs are having fun with the gay bomb with comments like “fire in the hole” etc. But there are some Dr. STrangeloves been there a long time..remember the LSD experiments in the 60s?

    The wired dot com link brings to mind the Van Damme film Universal Soldier and the cyllindrical eyepieces the soldiers wear over one eye. Technology gets scarier by the minute.

    I think I recall reading sometime back about the insect project, and in these days of microtech I wouldn’t assume the role of skeptic. The A/V stuff isn’t at all farfetched — I can’t go into detail here, but in the course of pursuing security concerns I have in the past worked with pinhole size surveillance technology.

    The tiny power cells, servos and navigation system involved would definitely impress the hell out of me, but then again, my scientific explanation for how things like CDs and DVDs work is “they’re magic”.

    “Fire in the hole”, LOL!

    My mother, who was an East Village beatnik in the early 1960s, participated back then in a mescaline experiment at Columbia University. Had she done so before I’d been born, it might have answered a lot of questions…
