Trivializing the War
[ytk, Dec 10 2012]
||This is how I imagine a [beanangel] idea would look
like if it were distilled
three times over. Needs a bit more Happylong to be
honest, but I'll give you a bun anyway.
||I actually thought this was a beany-bake, then I noticed
||It wouldn't work, but it wouldn't hurt either. Buns away!
||[-] the booms and whistles and stuff aren't really there for entertainment.
||The obvious problem I can see with this idea is that
if you actually implemented it, you'd likely be court-martialed on charges of
trivializing the war. (link)
||Presumably some quixotic notion about making them
recognize the silliness and ultimate futility of war. I
highly doubt it would have the intended effect, or
that it would even be remotely practical to
implement, but I just like the imagery. I'm
imagining loud fart noises played with each round
||//I mean, how do you disguise the sound of an explosion?// After the explosion you could have the sound of a hubcap rolling around in a spolling disk fashion. Or perhaps the sound of PacMan dying after he has been caught by a ghost.
||it's basically the same principle as fireworks, but applied to the boom instead of the visual.
