A weapon system that fires a soldiers' own biological waste products at enemies has been patented.

Invented by Aleksandr Georgievich Semenov, the weapon system is designed to be incorporated in to armored vehicles such as tanks. During a battle soldiers inside the vehicle would be able to use the system to effectively fire their own biological waste at the enemy by having it encased with explosives within an artillery shell.

The mechanism is billed as both a way to help the soldiers get rid of their waste products while providing an additional form of ammunition to fire at an unsuspecting foe.

"As the projectile leaves the tank, it removes what would eventually have become a source of stinking misery for the poor soldiers who, in combat, could be forced to remain sealed inside their vehicle for several days."

That stuff could knock syphillis out of a philipino whore. Great way to describe the strength of a type of Antibiotic. Being from London I would go with 'Soho Slapper' instead though.

If that weapon gets into the hands of any 5 American Rednecks (like me for instance) we could take over the world in two weeks.

Bio-weapons. I don't think people are realizing how bad this is. Forget nukes. If some rolled up onto our shores with these we'd have to shut down all Taco Bell's, Burger Kings, White Castle's, Golden Corral's, Chipotle's and Carl Jr's just to have a fighting chance.

Ew but I suppose the one good thing is you can kill your enemys and fertilise the earth and keep it green at the same time.

Ew but I suppose the one good thing is you can kill your enemys and fertilise the earth and keep it green at the same time. I would rather kill the enemy and fertilise their women.
