Three years ago, a man named Aleksandr Semenov once patented a way to shoot poop from a tank.
I know. Pretty cool.
Here’s the way it works: Tank soldiers sometimes have to take poops. When they do, the poop above a big empty artillery shell. Then they add explosives to the mix and fire the shells at the enemy.
Or, as the patent says:
"The gun charged with special projectile is targeted on a safety zone or on any enemy target which is worth for catching it."
The result? The poop is out of the tank. Hurray! Also there are “additional military-psychological and military-political effects.” Translation: The enemy soldiers run screaming off the battlefield, covered in enemy grumpies. (Article via the Guardian.)
