> anti-smog guns to try to control the smog.

TIL anti-smog guns are a thing. Can they really be that helpful though?

Huh, TIL again... More on anti-smog guns (October 22, 2022):

I love that it’s just a giant cannon with the words “ANTI SMOG GUN” on the side. Whoever designed this took clear inspiration from the Acme Corp.

I mean, you really don't want to confuse it with the "PRO-SMOG GUN".

If looney tunes has taught me anything, it's that you can stack these conflicting descriptions endlessly. So I see your pro smog gun, and raise you a PRO ANTI-SMOG GUN.

Is that the same, or opposite of the ANTI-ANTI-SMOG GUN?


Vlad_the_Homeowner t1_iv1mb2s wrote

Ah screw it. I'll just toss this ACME portable hole on the wall and put all the smog in there.

I'm pretty sure that's just a snow making machine like what you see at a ski resort, but with an "Anti Smog Gun" sticker on it lol

Perfect, meanwhile, I will ride out the recession by putting on my job helmet and jumping into the job cannon!

Isn’t an anti smog gun just when you shoot the CEO of an oil company

Unfortunately for us no one has tested out that version of an anti smog gun yet except maybe in Russia

How would that decrease demand for oil?

I didn't know they existed but it makes sense.

If we can make sonic guns that use sound to injure or incapacitate someone then anti-smog guns are definitely on the table.

So they just move all the particulates to their water sources? "Regular" dust isn't the worst thing (assuming it's just dirt-dust), but some materials like brake dust probably isn't too great. Then considering that water will also carry anything on the ground like tire particulates and stuff. I get it's a trade off, better to breath, but wish there was a better way.
