world war 2 : poison sewing needle bomb !





Oh my - who'd have thought it .... back in WWII the British Government assisted by Canadian and American scientists developed  a new and lethal bomb made from poison infused sewing needles!  I came across this article recently in the Danger Room and couldn't quite believe what I read ... but yes it appears to be true.

Apparently the bomb never made it into full production because it had "little penetrating power" .... Now speaking from personal experience I can honestly say it hurts ALOT when you stab yourself with a needle but maybe I'm not as thick skinned as those weapons men?

You can read the article here in the Danger Room

I knew quilting could be dangerous but I thought it was my bank balance that was at risk.

Seriously, same technology believed to be in the umbrella which poisoned Georgi Markov in 1978.
