    Sometimes you have to think "OUTSIDE THE BOX" when you are trying to develop weapons.

    I guess they had to scrap the idea when they caught up to the rest of the scientific world and discovered that being gay was a genetic thing, so they would have to alter the DNA and hope that it profilerated throughout the body.

    Instead of working a "gay bomb" why doesn't the military spend it's money on getting our troops even more blast-resistant humvees and transport vehicles so that our troops don't continually get permanently maimed or killed due to IED blasts? The military higher-ups have the technology, but not the will to do it. It would cost only $3000 per vehicle to strap enough armor on the bottom, front, and sides to achieve this result. Who cares if the vehicle goes a little slower and consumes a little more gas to reach the destination? Getting there going 25 mph but fully intact and no injuries is better than 40 mph and possible loss of several vehicles as well as a half-dozen troops.

    Surely in the billion or two dollars per week that this Iraq situation is costing taxpayers, they can afford to take a week off and outfit several hundred vehicles.

    So, $3000 per vehicle, or $30,000 minimum in medical costs and physical rehab as well as treatment of PTSD when the solder gets his leg and/or arm blown off because of an IED. Easy choice it seems.
