Researchers in San Antonio have developed a new non-lethal weapon to help break up mobs, riots, and those bothersome peaceful demonstrations. The weapon dispenses a "super-slimy" substance that causes rioters and vehicles to lose traction and slip wildly about. The weapon uses an airbrush-like dispensing nozzle and a backpack with cylinders that contain compressed air, water, and a finely ground polyacrylamide powder. The dispensing nozzle fires individual streams of water and powder at the crowd, which mix in the air and douse the crowd in the slimy substance. Unfortunately, this device will only add to the effectiveness of the far too common oil wrestling sit-ins and Slip 'N Slide-based protests.
