Dem convention could be a crappy time
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Sounds only fair given what will be going on inside the convention at the time:
Political activists planning protest rallies at the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver have their stomachs in knots over a rumor about a crowd control weapon - known as the “crap cannon” - that might be unleashed against them.

Also called “Brown Note,” it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily.
Meanwhile, inside the convention center, methinks the piling higher and deeper will be of the voluntary kind.

It’s pretty bold to spread a rumor warning about the impending use of a weapon that doesn’t exist. Had they gone with the Active Denial System, I might just have believed it.

Isn’t Active Denial part of the Obama campaign? Perhaps they’ve become immune.

The Brown Note, believe it or not, was a South Park episode. And yes, in 2D land, that ditty sure does make people *&$#@^!

The Brown Note is, as pointed out, a myth or urban legend.

What’s more, it’s a complete waste of time even if it is possible, because it’s easier to simply debilitate people with sound without particularly targeting their bowels.

Most likely, somebody was in the path of one of the sound guns that is simply loud and decided that it must be someone trying to hit the brown note, as opposed to simply "loud sound". Play a bit of Rumor Telephone in an environment that doesn’t exercise much judgment when it comes to accusations of evil derring-do, and very quickly you end up with this.

It’s a little paranoid and more than a little ignorant (quelle surprise), but in the grand scheme of things not that large an error to make.

Then again, it would cause many Liberals in attendance to simply cease to exist...

What with them being completely full of sh*t and all... ;)

I think you read too much into this, Bruce.
What you’re describing is Democrat mantra, given a fancy name. Democrat mantra after all, has a tendency to spread crap all over everything.

This ’Brown Note’ nonsense is just an exaggeration. The actual device, the ’Tan Tone’, merely causes massive flatulence, which is not debilitating at all. It is not even embarrassing, since the question of ’who dealt it’ is self evident. There is, however, some irritating effect due to the dissonance caused by the multitude of frequencies generated by sphincters with different physical characteristics (aperture size, rigidity, gas exit velocity, etc.).
