Quote:The military suicide rate doubled in July. That's one of our troops, almost every day.

To come up with an answer, the Army recently gave 3 million dollars to a university of Indiana research center, and those researchers came back with this: Anti-Suicide Nasal Spray.

The spray is only possible because of advances in "nanotechnology delivery systems."

Would it not be better to go after the source of the depression, namely stop these stupid unsustainable foreign resource grab wars?

Problem is them young fellers didn't
know what they was signin' up for.
Ain't easy when it sinks in that every
day could be their last.
The friend you knew yesterday is gone
the next, makes fer a hard time and
after that you ain't ever gonna' be the
person you once was.
This here's the first I've heard about
nanotech for use in the body. Gives
me a bad feelin' about what's going to
happen to 'em in a few years.

I wonder what the adverse side affects will be, espcially after they finish their service. Will they be addicted to nanonasal spray?

reminds me of this scene from minority report
