And on a different note...

Okay, so Aryn reminded me what a slacker I have been for not blogging sooner. Aryn, please accept my deepest apologies. Now, shall we?

Anybody out there ever heard of the "brown note" (aka the crap cannon)? No? Well I did, earlier today, for the first time in my life. (Thanks to Norm.) According to Wikipedia (aka The Source of All Knowledge) "The brown note (also known as a crap cannon), according to an urban legend, is an infrasound frequency that causes humans to lose control of their bowels due to resonance. There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that a "brown note" (transmitted through sound waves in air) exists."

How gross is that, right? Oh, but it gets better. The whole reason co-worker/mentor Norm told me about it today was because he saw an article in the Denver Post regarding claims by people planing to gather for the purposes of the Democratic National Convention. The police, they claim, are already planning on using this so-called "brown note" against them.

Ummm, really?

If you ask me, it's just another excuse to poop your pants and blame the cops!

Hahaha agreed! I'd never heard about this, thanks for enlightening me!

Hm, I'm new to the Brown Note thing as well. I wouldn't put it past the police, though. At least not some of the ones out here. Thanks for posting!

Welcome back!
I was standing in the kitchen when I heard my mom laughing, nearly wheezing and snorting, from behind the bathroom door. When she came out I asked her what was so funny and she read this same story to me...I'd pay to see that thing used at the DNC.
