So *that*'s what's happend to poor old Agatha...
Canadian boffins say they have developed a fearsome paralysis ray technology which caused test animals zapped with it to "turn blue and become paralysed". The effect is claimed to be "reversible", but is often fatal. Chemistry prof Neil Branda and his colleagues achieved their startling effects by drugging their test animals …
Our wonderful government will no doubt take immediate steps to have us all injected with this chemical, so that when the police suspect that someone is a terrorist they can instantly zap them.
It's to keep us all safe, so there can't be any objection can there? The police need to have the power to disable people at whim^H^H^H^Hwill or they won't be able to do their job.
The elevated position would more likely be Big Ben under the guise of some sort of refurb. There's no point in doing it on the moon, it becomes a nightmare when you have local contractors involved in the Project.
A good example being the Death-Ray I'm currently building in Hatfield, local contractors, easier to keep track of with my disposable security guards (plus the fact that I can test it, wiping out most of the town and nobody would notice).

A subject being studiously ignored by the No10 fat cats, even whenever it has been forwarded directly to them, for too long. One wonders whose agenda they are serving with their Debtfests
Suck on that pineapple, and deny it if you will.
Really - even when the thing being paralysed is a tumor?
Or stopping a twitching muscle to allow surgery around it?
Or allow you to treat an ulcer/stomarch cancer non-invasively with an endoscope rather than cutting them in half?.
The point of this is to allow you to give somebody a set of rugs and then only switch them on at the point you illuminate with a UV endoscope. It's just that their attempt to get some publicity has been tabloided?
Had a read. In order for it to work, the chemical has to be concentrated in its head. AND it has to be exposed to the UV light. This works great for worms since they are see through. But in people we have something call a skull which is pretty good at shutting out light.
But two thumbs up for Canuck Science, now back to the igloo, got to get this Global Warming thing happening faster....

Interesting. Does it work if the liquid was given to subjects as vapour? It could be deployed on a battlefield- if the stuff was invisible/opaque then opposing force would inhale it potentially. Then you could use the ray.
The possibilities for surgery on tumours etc is great though.
That would make it far more "weaponisable". I'm thinking along the lines of the 1960s movie daleks armed with fire extinguishers- spray, UV-expose, leave them to either die or save them shortly afterwards. For longer range use I guess you could use a small paintball (Death to the Daleks)?
Also, if it relies on UV radiation to activate it, would people with a high dermal melanin concentration be harder to knock out? Could high-strength sunblock provide an invisible shield against this?
And yes it has peaceful/medical value. But you'll never get lots of publicity and research money for that!
It's the opaque-to-UV one, thanks.
