Having read of the professor who ate the stuff by the lb to prove it was harmless, I agree, it was probably exaggerated, but, hey, I work in the toxic chemical industry. Nerve gas is nothing more than insecticide cooked down a little longer. The tanks are guarded by guys with machine guns, and everytime we get a terror alert the black helicopters start buzzing around them as the fighter planes wizz by. Go ahead and eat a lb of that, see you in the morgue. About the only studies you get are "LD-50" reports, how much of the stuff takes 50 rats out of a hundred to die in X minutes of exposure, I think. So if one oz of some stuff has an LD-50 of 0, go ahead and eat it. I promise you'll be fine.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
