About Me

Based on a career (mis)spent in American politics, I debunk politicos, pundits and spinners, usually with a dose of humor to make it fun.

Japan Invents a "Shut Up" Gun and I Want One NOW....

shutupgun.jpgGod bless The Awl. Without this in my RSS reader I might have missed out on the news that scientists in Japan have invented what is informally called a "shut up gun" - a device to silence people who talk.

Using the same effect when you talk into a cell phone that relays back your own voice on a delay, only on a larger scale, it's fairly effective at, well, shutting people up.

I can think of about a million uses for this in San Francisco, and when these become available, I'm buying one. Muni, Supervisors, Mayor, annoying people on the street (to start) : consider yourself warned.
