    sword swallowing can harm your throat?!?!?!? no f*cking way...omg all this time i though it was a safe thing to do...my life was just a lie until now...thank you Dan Meyer for revealing the truth...you inspired me to write a book about how shouting yourself in the head can harm you.....
    okay but seriously how stupid do you have to be to write book about it? no wonder he won that award...

    and about the gay bomb thing....the only thing that can be worse then getting into a war, is getting in to a war with bunch of fags and lesbos...im afraid to think about what would they do to their prisoners...
    US Air Force got to much money to spend...maybe they need to work on anti-gay bomb, considering that the numbers of gay people keeps growing(not that i have something against gay people, it was just a though)

    Gay bomb wasn`t designed *by* terrorists, it was designed to use against them.

    If it works i want a mini one. So that I can throw it to the hot straight guys I meet.

    Its a sick yet good idea in the sense they get into a shoot out with some radicals, yet they are in a village filled with innocent people. How can you disarm and arrest, then kill them and keep innocents safe.............unfortunatly they seem to think the anserew is too cause an orgy.

    "Literature - Glenda Browne of Blue Mountains, Australia, for her study of the word "the", and how it can flummox those trying to put things into alphabetical order.
    Economics - Kuo Cheng Hsieh of Taiwan for patenting a device that can catch bank robbers by dropping a net over them."

    At least THESE are slightly useful, unlike this one:
    "Linguistics - A University of Barcelona team for showing that rats are unable to tell the difference between a person speaking Japanese backwards and somebody speaking Dutch backwards."

    I mean, what the bloody hell??

    Interesting side note: In ancient Greece, the Sacred Band of Thebes was an army consisting exclusively of 150 gay couples. The rationale was that gay lovers would fight more fiercely by each other`s side.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Band_of_Thebes

    So maybe a gay bomb would be counter-productive.

    Amazing, all day I`ve been wondering that, and now I know, they can`t. Great, now I owe my mum £5 *heavy dollops of sarcasm, that funnily enough were extracted from cow dung*

    Gay bomb... hm... interesting concept. How is it made though? id really like that answered. Do they fill it full of pheremones? that seems likely.
