Zombie Gun


'Mind-bending "psychotronic" guns that can effectively turn people into zombies have been given the go-ahead by Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Research into electromagnetic weapons has been secretly carried out in the US and Russia since the Fifties. But now it appears Mr Putin has stolen a march on the Americans. Precise details of the Russian gun have not been revealed. However, previous research has shown that low-frequency waves or beams can affect brain cells, alter psychological states and make it possible to transmit suggestions and commands directly into someone's thought processes.

The long-term effects are not known, but two years ago a former major in the Russian foreign intelligence agency, the GRU, died in Scotland after making claims about such a weapons programme to MI6. Sergei Serykh, 43, claimed he was a victim of weapons which he said were "many times more powerful than in the Matrix films".

Mr Serykh died after falling from a Glasgow tower block with his wife and stepson in March 2010. While his death was assumed to be suicide, his family fear there was foul play.'

I can buy the idea that the brain can be compromised by "low-frequency waves or beams", but "transmit[ting] suggestions and commands directly into someone's thought processes"? Nah. At least definitely not yet.


He just made you say that...




Daily Mail always has the good ones.



'He died less than 24 hours later...Pop music blared from a dark blue van parked nearby bearing the logo of Putin's United Russia party, and about 20 members of a pro-Putin youth movement gathered on another part of the square, hoping to distract attention from the protest.

Before slipping into a coma, he told relatives he had been beaten by four police officers and sodomized with a champagne bottle...Oskar Krylov, a 22-year old administrator, says he was sodomised with a champagne bottle and a pencil by Kazan police...Although Nazarov's death has prompted protests in Kazan, Rashit Akhmetov, one of the protest organizers, said that official pressure had frightened people away. Students, he said, had been told by their university not to protest.'


I've heard of something like this before. I don't know if it actually exists, but here's how it supposedly worked.

Normally you hear sound by vibrating the eardrums, and having (whatever part of your ear) interpret that and send the electrical signals to your brain. This would supposedly bypass your eardrum, and directly stimulate the inner portion(s) of your ear.

In other words, I guess you are correct - it wouldn't go "directly into someone's thought processes". The brain would still recognize it as a sound - not it's own thought processes. But the 'target' would probably feel like someone else' voice was in his head

examples -

A. driving someone crazy
B. faking communication from God
C. actually - any situation where you might want to fake a one way telepathic communication... fake alien encounter, whatever

So you gotta be careful Tirib, in case you ever start hearing those God voices in your head again... it could just be someone messin with ya



Why did they need to make this gun? All they had to do was make people watch American Idol for a few minutes to get the same effect.


True. But the Russians are more advanced. Putin's "Blueberry Hill" rendition is a more potent neurotoxin than anything American Idol churns out.


I disagree:


Okay now don't say you didn't ask for this...


You win, I can't top that.


You are just not willing to go nuclear.

Break out the cat pics.


The human audible range isn't very big. I just looked it up: 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz. The brain can be affected by much more than just tones in this frequency range. This has nothing to do with the human sense of hearing. What if I put someone's head in a microwave, or in front of some kind of satellite transmission system? Clearly you won't hear sound as those things operate in the GHz ranges, but it can affect your brain.

Think about the way a radio works. Given a power source and frequency of oscillation, you make slight modifications (modulation) to that RF energy by modifying amplitude, frequency, etc. I am not a radio expert, so please don't pick apart my short explanation. I am not a brain-wave expert either. But my point is that it is entirely reasonable that specific information can be transmitted wirelessly to another endpoint that is also receptive to RF energy. Whether or not the human brain can receive/process it (at this time) is really the question.
