Giving "septic tank" a whole new meaning

It's not unusual for an ape or monkey that feels threatened to fling its poo at an attacker. Now one researcher has patented a similar tactic for humans.

Aleksandr Georgievich Semenov came up with a rather disgustingly unique way for soldiers manning a tank to kill two birds with one stone. Since such cramped quarters can make for poor sanitary conditions, why not weaponize the human waste and make it someone else's problem?

The concept is rather simple. Basically, a soldier relieves himself into an explosive artillery shell and then fires it at the enemy. The idea is to inflict physical and psychological damage.

I can think of one major problem: this may fall under the Geneva Convention's prohibition of the use of chemical and biological weapons.
