Submission + - Pentagon Sought To Build A 'Gay Bomb'

nam37 writes: CBS 5 has an interesting article about 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.

"The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another," Hammond said after reviwing the documents.

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
