Mace From Peppers

India is currently trying to weaponize* some of their more potent peppers

It makes a sort of sense. The peppers are spicy and hot, they make people gag and burn their eyes. They can be converted into tear gas and mace type sprays.

But I have a weird sense of humor and I can just see the counter measures for this as being milk sprays, big pieces of bread, or, I dunno, those cheap little white masks that people use while riding the subway, or you know, mowing the lawn.

Still though… I sort of like the idea of Using Nature to Fight Our Battles for us. I can just see some sort of Bean Powered Gas being released in the next couple months. Now, if we could only wake up the trees, we would be set.

*Weaponize is not a word according to Microsoft. Seriously? I can understand why “mocha” and “meh” aren’t… but “weaponize”? Heck, they even added in “blog.” I guess I could take that as an optimistic sign, but I don’t.
