When we think of really strange military experiments, you might go right to the Nazi plans. However, while they had some really screwed up ideas, too, these military experiments take the cake! If you were ever planning on joining the military, you might want to reconsider after reading about some of these experiments that they do on living people! We’re not talking about prisoners or people that are leaving their bodies to science. You can get these great benefits just by signing up for the service so you can save some money for college. It really explains a lot, really…
The Gay Bomb
It’s weapons like the Gay Bomb that make it possible for us to understand the deficit. The Gay Bomb is exactly what it sounds like; a weapon that will explode and make your enemies gay. Actual, weaponized gay. Wright Laboratory in Ohio proposed a number of non-lethal weapons to the Pentagon, as methods of crowd control are highly in demand these days, from better tear gas to pain rays. Their idea was to bathe our enemies in an aphrodisiac chemical so strong that it caused all enemy combatants to turn gay! The concept is pretty simple, really: You can’t fight if you’re gay. That’s the whole reason for don’t ask, don’t tell, right? However, science has not actually perfected this bomb to work outside of a few gay rights parades. Despite that, the Pentagon kicked this idea around for at least seven years! The experiments were tested from 1987-1994 when the Clinton Administration looked over the results of the testing and said – “This is ridiculous!“ Harvard University awarded the scientists an IG Nobel Prize in 2007. This is a parody on the real Nobel Prize.

Project Standard Bathroom Malodor
The United States has something, in its possession, called US Government Standard Bathroom Malodor (aka, the Stink Bomb) which is apparently so bad, people who have experienced it actually start screaming within seconds. People subjected to this stink bomb say it smells worse than anything you’ve ever inhaled – times ten. The military wants to throw it at people as a non-lethal method of crowd control and also as a psychological weapon. Military forces have been playing with this idea for decades. The one currently in production has a mixture of eight chemicals with a stench resembling concentrated human feces. During World War Two, we had another one called – literally – “Who Me?“. It had the smell of concentrated rotting carcasses and was designed to be lobbed at German troops. The only problem with this military weapon is that it also causes the stench to cling to whatever it touches, meaning who is going to want to capture the enemy after they surrender and come asking for a bath?

Project 112
Here was a really smart experiment. It occurred in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War. Threats of chemical and biological warfare led the U.S. Department of Defense to start “Project 112″ from 1963 to the early 1970s. The number “112″ comes from the previous experiments they did on this. So what was it? It was a way of vaccinating our soldiers (who were drafted for the most part) with chemical warfare to see if they could build up an immune system to it! While it was attributed to the United States Navy, every branch of the service participated in this experiment. They involved unknowing test subjects, and took place on land and at sea via tests conducted upon unwitting US Naval vessels. The existence of the project (along with the related Project SHAD) was categorically denied by the military until May 2000, when a CBS Evening News investigative report produced dramatic revelations about the tests. This report caused the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs to launch an extensive investigation of the experiments, and reveal to the affected personnel their exposure to toxins. While Project 112 consisted of using Sarin Gas and VX poison on our troops, this was just one of many chemical warfare experiments conducted by the U.S. military, starting with volunteer tests involving mustard gas in World War II. Be all that you can be!

Project: Stay-Awake
Sleep can be a warrior’s worst enemy, whether during day-long battles or long-duration missions flown from halfway around the world. But various military branches have tried to change that over the years by distributing “stay awake pills” or stimulants such as amphetamines. More recently, the military has tested and deployed the drug Modafinil – more commonly known under brands such as Provigil – which has supposedly enabled soldiers to stay awake for 40 hours straight without ill effect. And the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is funding even more unusual anti-sleep research, such as transcranial magnetic stimulation that zaps the brain with electromagnetism! That sounds safe!

Inner Armor
Perhaps super soldiers may not be far off after all, if efforts such as DARPA’s “Inner Armor” project find success.If you are a fan of the superhero movies, you are going to love this one! Consider efforts to give humans the extreme abilities of some animals, such as surviving great heights (like 35,000 feet) or great depths in the ocean (in excess of 2 miles down without body armor!). The goal is to make soldiers “kill-proof” against all sorts of conditions, including infectious diseases, chemical, biological and radioactive weapons, temperature and altitude extremes, and harsh natural environments. Now we’re creating our own mutants!
