    I saw this on Fark yesterday http://www.thememoryhole.org/mil/nl-weapons_terms/ A report on non-lethal weapons the military has studied. some freaky things like 'acoustic bullets'.

    Actually the *real* "Goat Lab" is very cool (I
    thought it was what this thread was about).
    The military field medics (not the FMSS or 91-Bravo
    types) who go through Recon Medic, SPECWAR IDC
    and some other units go something called
    "the goat lab".

    Take a full aid bag. Go in a shack. There is a
    goat in there tied up. One of the instructors
    comes in with a 9mm and shoots the goat.

    Keep the goat alive. If the goat dies before
    the lab is over or you leave the shack.. you fail.

    Periodically (like over the next 36 hours) the instructor
    comes back in and shoots the goat again.

    Fun stuff, I definitely intend to try this someday
    as a personal training exercise. Goat may be expensive
    though. I wonder if you'd have to shave the goat's
    fur to get a good stick for the IV? Hmmmm.....
    let's talk about why fat-fu shall we?

    I figured how to BREAK a goat's heart, but I got my broken in the process too, and he got to keep the furniture and our Wedgewood china.

    A shell fired from one of the large guns on a battleship travels at such velocity that it creates enormous shockwaves. If fired low over the heads of oncoming troops, such a shell would potentially kill many men under the path of its trajectory. Since this application is simply not practical, it's never been tried.

    About 10 years ago, a laser rifle was developed for sniping. Rather than killing, it was designed to blind targets by destroying their retinas with a successful face shot. Since the beam was effectively invisible to the human eye and completely silent, there was no way to know until the target lost their vision. The range was decent and accuracy wasn't affected by wind conditions. This rifle never went past the testing stage as it violated the Geneva convention so completely. I don't know if they used it blind any goats, but they might have.

    There was a big article on this in the guardian (a more upmarket Uk paper) last weekend and they interviewed the guy who used to run it... seems abit of a fruitcake really

    incidently, that place used to be called 'dog lab' according to the artcile, but then they realised not even rock hard soldiers could calously shoot dogs with big eyes... so instead they use goats because apparently it is next to impossible to form emotional attachmenst to them (not in that sense...)

    Seriously, some of you will believe anything.

    Ever hear of the Strasbourg Goat Tests? Dude, the military like, totally shot all these goats, see? It was sick, there was blood and guts all over the place an' stuff.
    And they proved that .45 ACP is t3h d34dli3st thing on the planet. And 9mm only made the goats fightin' mad, and that's why the U.S. military used .45's for like 75 years and only bought 9mm's when the Italians bribed them.

    It's true. It's in a book somewhere. I don't have it with me right now. And my cousin totally spilled Boone's wine on it so it's kind of hard to read anyway.

    (No, there were no Strasbourg Goat Tests, but it's an actual rumor that's been around for decades. . . . . )
