Pacifism Box

Stops arguments
  (+16)(+16)

a small box, in public rooms where people have arguments... whenever the noise is too loud, such as shouting, then it releases helium from compression chambers inside. the helium circulates in the room, making it difficult for everyone totalk, and raising the voices several octaves. It is not poisonous, nor does it cause much breathing trouble. Forced politeness.

       I'd keep arguing. But it would be interesting to see who could and could not maintain thier argumentative composure.

       The Danny Rose video starts off "dark" but stay with it. It's only a minute long.

       although it doesn't technically stop the agruements, it's a great idea, as I think everyone would eventually start laughing! +
