Document Released Describes WWII Poison Sewing Needles

June 26, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – A recently released report has shown that the UK and Canada ran tests for a WWII weapon that would use poisoned darts against the enemy.

The darts would be made of sewing machine needles, which had been filled with a powerful poison, sealed with cotton and wax, and given a paper tail to make it more aerodynamic.

The project was led by the legendary Dr. Paul Fildes, and the darts were expected to kill a man if they penetrated the flesh withing 30 seconds (if not removed), and cause collapse in 1 – 5 minutes if not removed within that half a minute. Death would then follow within a half an hour.

However, according to a report by The Telegraph, scientists decided to scrap the project after testing proved that it was easily protected against by taking cover under nearly anything solid.

The poisonous sewing needles are now just another chapter in failed WWII weaponry, but certainly not the last.
