Diplomatic_Means's trivia

The correct answer was $6,000.

Why did US secret agents abandon plans - approved by President Franklin D Roosevelt - to drop live bats from airplanes to frighten the Japanese during WW2?

Well, If i remember correctly, and i might be confusing another project with this, the bats were ment to carry fire-bombs...in one of the experiment, the bets were launched and exidently bruned down a military fascilety..?
They would die on the way down from a multitude of things including 1) lack of oxygen 2) tempature 3) falling 30,000 feet 4) God knows what else.

But I dunno it would still be scary to have millions of dead bats raining in your country.

I got it! Maybe SOMEONE realized the idea was STUPID :stupid:
