      • Scientists have been trying to invent a death ray composed of x-rays or gamma rays for years. But nature beat them to it. In 2007 NASA discovered a black hole generating such a mean that's destroying everything in its pat. It's been dubbed "the Death Star."

      • Prolonged exposure to loud music has been used by the U.S. military to "soften up" prisoners. Artists on the mind-bending playlist include Eminem, Metallica and Barney the dinosaur.

      • During World War II, the Germans devised a precursor to the Cornershot by attaching a curved barrel to their Sturmgewehr rifle. It proved impractical – as it increased barrel wear and decreased accuracy and muzzle velocity.

      • Pentagon documents from 1994 indicate the U.S. military had investigated building a gay bomb." It would have contained strong aphrodisiacs to encourage the enemy to make love, not war.
