EDIT: I misspelled catastrophic. I are smart!
Deathmaster 400K: In light of all the controversy surrounding video games and violence they supposedly cause (yet again), I've had this horrid idea. It's a disc disguised as a bootleg video game from Japan, called Deathmaster 400K: Legend of the Marquis' Jewel. Supposedly made for Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, but never released stateside, this isn't a video game. Instead, it carries a memetic agent that causes people, particularly males, to develop increasingly violent tendencies. I know it sounds like a game what makes you go crazy.
The Cure: This is an idea I've had for a while, but have never had the nuts to write up. Basically, it's a drug developed by a middle-eastern government (I'm thinking possibly Iranian) in an attempt to "cure" sexual deviance. At a glance, the composition seems fairly mundane; it's a variant of LSD mixed with some sex hormones and dopamine. However, if anyone deemed "deviant" by their very, very loose standards consumes this drug (either through injection, ingestion, or even skin contact) suffers vivid hallucinations of them having each and every one of their sexual indiscretions being described to them in vivid detail, even if they're virgins. Then, they suffer severe pain in their sexual organs for up to 7 days (including priapism in men) and the process repeats over and over until they repent their deviance, at which point, they become unable to become aroused by any sexual activity other than male/female, missionary position. And that's just if you're straight and kinky. If you're LBGT… you get something much worse. My main concern with this is that it'll either sound too erotic, too offensive, or too gross.
So, those are my ideas. What d'ya think?
