Well, this is nice. Maybe everyone can get used to the idea of a limited nuclear war now. I wonder when they're going to start handing these things out to the troops? Another step in preperation for the inevitable perhaps?

Interesting.. at first thought I wanted to go and get some ASAP...but then I thought, if every one wanted to do that, what could they put in the pill to harm a large number of people quickly...

Sounds like it, jack. Star!

But i'll never really get used to the idea of small scale nuke war, although
it does seem more possible than ever before!

What bugs me about drug companies (besides being monkey mutilators),
is that they push for development and release of new drugs so rapidly,
ya gotta wonder about all the side effects!

(in very fast-speak) = "may cause diahreah, vomiting, nausea, headaches
stomach aches, cold sweats, dizziness, loss of balance, mood-swings,
irritable bowels, blurred vision & speech, restlessness, sleeplessness;"

OMG - Can you imagine the human trials on this drug?

How much would they pay the person willing to test this one out?

"I'm sorry Mr. Smith, I'm not sure why your hair is falling out and there is blood coming from your anal region. Just stay there, we've got more tests to do. Maybe your thyroid is acting up - not sure. We'll check on you in a bit. No, you can't have any pain killers, that would skew the results of the study. Don't worry, radiation is not an exact science. We'll work it out. If you need anything just ring the buzzer."

So we have RadX now do we?

What's next, Psycho combat stimulants and Mentats?

Eyes open people, the world is changing all around you.
