Deicer or massive population doping conspiracy?

(tongue in cheek here)

Y’all might recall this post where I spent the day riding around and testing the relative safety and merits of inhaling mass quantities of an airborne anti-depressant (and deicer) that had been sprayed all over the city streets.

Leave it to my good friend Dean to catch the obvious geek reference…I’m ashamed I missed it myself…

“Reavers”

“It’s the Pax. The G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate that we added to the air processors . It was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression.”

If you don’t get the reference, that’s okay…but you’re missing some of the best science fiction in the last decade…go buy the Firefly and Serenity DVD’s and have yourself a marathon. In the mean time, just know that Reavers are an awful lot like zombies. SCARY zombies. With spaceships!

Okay, so they’re using magnesium chloride (apparently effective as a anti-depressant AND deicer) here instead of Paxilon Hydrochlorate…maybe has something to do with our “atmosphere processors” being dump trucks equipped with sand spreaders and spray bars and only being deployed in an ice-storm.

And of course, the FDA hasn’t weighed in on the required dosage for Reaver-hood from airborne magnesium chloride, but perhaps they went “the other way”

“Well, it worked. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There’s 30 million people here, and they all just let themselves die.”

Seems a lot like your average federal guy…

But…come to think of it…there are some vehicles (and people) banging around Dallas’s streets that look an awful lot like Reavers…

I figure I got quite the dosing of that stuff…and my motorcycle is getting a little worse for the wear…

My face hasn’t peeled off though…

I guess I’ll have to keep you posted on the Reaver thing…
