    I dunno why they're so excited about this. Canada has had this device for years, only we call it Celine Dion.

    So when do you get issued with one of these LRADs anakakakkekekeke?

    On another note, I've always loved how these things are "humane". Take the "Active Denial System" for example.
    Here's a quote I love from howstuffworks.com
    Doesn't that just fill you with confidence?
    "What's that smell? Oh it's just my eyes burning, I should probably close them while I convulse in pain from being cooked alive."

    Not to mention, wouldn't something like this surely hit as many civilians as intended targets?

    I haven't been issued with a Celine Dion yet, despite repeated formal requests.

    Don't worry... it's non-lethal! Don't mind the blood coming out of your ears... it's probably just something you ate.

    Question, can a loud noise really make your ears bleed?

    A shock wave from a loud noise can rupture your eardrums which will bleed. Soldiers who are too near an explosion bleed from the ears from the shock even if they weren't hit by anything.

    I actually like the idea on a serious note. I think Celine Dion would make a fine buffer for any military personnel in hostile territory... american or otherwise. ;)

    I love this, they don't come out and say it could be lethal because then they would have to defend that stance but they still imply the hell out of it.

    question, is it better to be shot or have your ears hurt by a loud noise? non lethal weapons give soldiers other options besides shooting someone. it isn't like we ride around blasting people for fun. Hell, what's next? should we stop using tear gas because it makes people cry?

    edit: for the record I'm replying to the article here and other articles I've seen complaining about non lethal weapons

    Actually didn't the army have something similar during the '80s, except they were called "really-large speakers?" I remember during the invasion of Panama, when Noriega was holed up in his compound, U.S. troops blasted him with really loud Heavy Metal until he agreed to come out.

    Its actually the increase of air pressure that ruptures earbrums from an explosion. But if a noise has enough vibration it can rupture said eardrum.

    Which is what I said. Shock waves = difference in air pressure. I didn't say the sound is what did it.

    You mean the willingness to stab out one's eardrums to make the pain go away?

    That screeching Quebec wench has gone too far.

    No. I do however have a weird fondness for animal sacrifice.

    And I do not in fact like celine but a lot do.
