The Indian military is developing a new non-lethal weapon meant to incapacitate enemies - the chili grenade. Made from the hottest pepper known to man, the ghost chili - which is also the coolest pepper name - the grenade will choke the enemy and force him from his hiding place and allow him to be captured alive for interrogation.
Research into this new weapon has been taking place at Indian restaurants worldwide for decades as unsuspecting patrons have had plates on inhumanly hot food placed in front of them. My experiences must have been in the earlier phases of development as they left me teary eyed and feverish but otherwise still functional. Now that I'm aware of this project I will be on guard on future visits to Indian dining establishments.
