It’s that time again. For a refresher course on keynote bingo, see the explanation accompanying the Macworld 2007 bingo card. For WWDC 2007, it’s the same deal: one card, no easy wins. As usual, some unmarked squares from past cards have been carried over. Hope springs eternal.
A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.
Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently rejected, building the so-called “Gay Bomb.”
Edward Hammond, of Berkeley’s Sunshine Project, had used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain a copy of the proposal from the Air Force’s Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio.
As part of a military effort to develop non-lethal weapons, the proposal suggested, “One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior.”
The US military is so deathly afraid of the gay, they’re cock-sure everyone else is too.
