"amusement means agreement...to have fun means (in any case): not thinking about it, forgetting the
suffering, anywhere it appears. the reason herefore is powerlessness. it is indeed escape, but not as
(the amusement) affirms, the escape from a bad reality, but from the final thought of resistance, which
it (the reality) has still left remaining." (T. W. Adorno / M. Horkheimer)

"...In July 1917, another poison, mustard gas was introduced. It was
developed from a substance, dichlorodiethylsulphide, code-named LOST, which
is an acronym of it's German inventors, Lommel and Steinkopf. The gas was
used as aerosols or sprays in order to contaminate the war zone and thus
poison those present. Unlike the rest, mustard gas can penetrate clothing,
leather and rubber goods rapidly, and attacks the skin as well as the mucous
membrane, thus affecting the whole body..." (taken from: "Toxic chemicals used in wars" by Dzulkifli Abdul Razak)
