    Another hoax or?

    Today a friend of mine who is on the county board tells me that its going around that there is a group that is offering to do painting or other home improvements. When you decline they give you a business card that is laced with something to incapacitate. I guess once you touch the card the stuff gets into your skin or you rub your nose or whatever.

    They tend to do this while you're pumping gas and then after you pull off they follow and wait for the incapacitation to occur.

    Then you're robbed or raped or whatever.

    Another internet hoax? Anyone else heard of this?

    I thought it a bit odd myself but crooks do strange things sometimes.

    Pretty much the only common transdermal that would both be unnoticed and fast would be LSD, and it wouldn't make for te "knockout effect".

    Those are the kind of people I don't get myself involved with.
    A simple I'm not interested is all they get from me. This applies to door-to-door solicitors as well.
    I don't even have a conversation with people trying to sell me something. If I need a product or service I will look for it myself, don't come around pesterting me.
    Self awareness is the first line of defense, no matter where you are.

    I can't imagine any sort of commonly available agent that can incapacitate with just a small amount infused through the skin.

    Hoax
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Actually...they hand you the business card, and when you look down to read it they whack you on the back of the head... Thats the only way I can think of it happening so fast.
    I don't accept flyers or business cards from people I have no intention of ever calling...thats why I have the google-fu...

    It's true, I saw a chemical in this Movie with Bruce Willis. It was called The Jackal In one scene he sprays this chemical on his vans door handle. Then Bad guy touches handle and dies on the spot.
    Its got to be true, it is in a movie.

    There are certainly some dangerous chemical warfare agents in the world, but I don't think any of them work like this. Not to mention it just sounds like the typical BS story you read about on the internet.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    If someone tells you one of these stories again, just think about this: if it has happened enough times that people are talking about it, people who it did not happen to, why have you not seen a story about it on the news or in the news paper?

    I work for FOX, believe me, we and the other networks would dive on a real story like this faster than you could possibly imagine. And it would get picked up nation wide in less than a day. The person telling you the story would start it by saying "I saw this report on FOX today" instead of "I heard about this guy who..."
