Military invents a menopause ray...

The United States Air force has invited a menopause ray - yes, that’s right - a menopause ray. In an Associated Press Article in this morning’s paper entitled “It doesn’t fit under your belt, but it’s a ray gun nonetheless” the following was announced…

“The military calls its new weapon an ‘active denial system,' but that’s an understatement. It’s a ray gun that shoots a beam that makes people feel as if they are about to catch fire. Apart from causing that terrifying sensation, the technology is supposed to be harmless -- a non-lethal way to get enemies to drop their weapons.”

First - I applaud the United States Air Force in it’s efforts to NOT take human lives.

Second, now more people will know how menopausal women feel - as if we are about to catch fire. Yes, the military has invented a menopause ray. All around the world male soldiers may one day understand exactly how a menopausal woman feels. The military has also accomplished something that a woman’s body is incapable of doing - having a hot flash on command. As any menopausal woman knows - it would be great if one could control the hot flashes. How convenient it would be if a menopausal woman who is cold could simply have a hot flash on command to warm her up. I am not saying that I have not had hot flashes in the dead of winter. Many is the time I have been driving down the street in January with my coat off and all of the windows rolled down. But to be able to control that hot flash? Now the military has managed to accomplish just that.

So I applaud the military in their invention of a non-lethal weapon. When a young male soldier suddenly feels like a woman in her fifties having a hot flash, the world will be a better place.

God Bless you all
