So who here has seen “Equilibrium”?

When they start trying to sneak this into the water supply, or something like that, we are in trouble.  I just know that almost every politician in DC is wondering how to mass produce and distribute this.

    The implications are scary as hell for all kinds of situations, especially if there is some antidote that could immunize one against the effect.

    Even without an antidote I can see many situations where misting the air in a room with several parts per million, say at arms control negotiations, or in business negotiations could provide a huge unfair advantage to the perpetrator.

    Soma!

    Besides getting cause and effect mixed up, trying to engender trust in the government artificially is treating citizens like cattle. Which, sadly, seems to be where we’re headed.

    Eloi and Morlocks. How depressing.

    Gee, two literary references in the same post.
    Sorry.

    Man, I love that stupid movie. GUN FU! I have it on DVD. Actually, I think it is the last DVD I bought.

    Damn, could’ve used some of that when I was single and on the prowl for nice-looking, available women.

    Seriously, this is very disturbing – that rational thought could be so easily manipulated or turned off by a simple chemical…very scary implications. That this researcher’s first thought was to see how to get people to trust government makes him firing squad-worthy IMHO.

    I don’t know, I figure it’s a fairly easy step for someone whose funding (or at least a good portion of it) probably comes from the government. Would you rather he didn’t publish the information at all?

    I suspect it already IS being tested. Witness the last election…

    Oh give me a break. McCain’s campaign did a terrible job, and the “neutral” media had been hammering away at GWB for YEARS; a lot of that spilled onto someone viewed as at least a like-minded man, if not a crony. McCain was fighting an uphill battle with one arm behind his back and he lost. It wasn’t all that shocking. Disappointing yes; shocking, no.

    If you want movie references, try this one one from “Serenity”;

    G-23 Paxilon Hydroclorate

    My question is what do they plan on doing about the 1/10th of 1% where the results are less than “optimal”?

  9. Chris says:

    its not 1/10 of 1%, its 3%!!!

    Yeah, sorry Chris, 3% is a fantasy. All I see is a few dozen who talk big, and 3% that does not make. I’ll be generous and give you 1/2 of 1%. That is still not a bad number, but you need to quit fooling yourself.
