Political activists planning protest rallies at the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver have their stomachs in knots over a rumor about a crowd control weapon – known as the “crap cannon” – that might be unleashed against them.
Also called “Brown Note,” it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily…
Dr. Roger Schwenke – an expert acoustician who appeared on the Discovery Channel’s “Mythbusters” in 2004 to test the phenomenon – told FOXNews.com there is no scientific evidence that proves such frequencies cause involuntary defecation…
But Schwenke acknowledged the low-frequency exposure did cause an adverse effect [in an experiment]. Several people — including himself — reported “abdominal discomfort,” he said, “which was easily alleviated by moving a moderate distance away from the source.”
You know Fox is going to have Geraldo live on the scene, reporting on the convention. Imagine it.
Update (Ed): South Park did an entire episode on the “Brown Note” from season 8. Here’s a clip from it, after the boys unleash it during the largest recorder concert in human history, led by Yoko Ono and Kenny G:
I never thought anyone took this seriously, but then again, no one ever went broke underestimating the rationality of the fringe Left.
