Glass Case Protects Baby from Poison Gas (Aug, 1938)

Sucks to be the other baby in the open crib.

Glass Case Protects Baby from Poison Gas
Masked nurses clad in gasproof rubber garments are testing out the latest invention of war-fearing Europe. It is a portable glass case in which babies can be thrust at the alarm of a gas attack and carried to a zone of safety.

    Sucks to be the other baby in the open crib.

    How else would you know if it worked?

    Yeah, it’s just double-blind testing taken to its natural conclusion: I’ll bet the other baby doesn’t know whether that’s poison gas or a placebo it is breathing.

    I guess we just hope that the “thrusting” of the baby into the glass case while in a panic doesn’t itself lead to tragedy. I bet the case can also double as a solar oven, perfect for when fuel is rationed during wartime!

    And experiments aren’t valid without a control baby, this is true.

    I get it. A bunch of guys just off camera were eating chili for hours. They farted their asses off. The baby outside the capsule is obviously holding his knows. The baby inside the capsule is sleeping blissfully.

    Science marches on.

    If it’s a nerve gas the baby outside is probably *trying*
    to ‘HOLD ITS KNOWS’.
