The use of poison gas in World War I was a major military innovation. The gases ranged from disabling chemicals, such as tear gas and the severe mustard gas, to lethal agents like phosgene. This chemical warfare was a major component of the first global war and first total war of the 20th century. The killing capacity of gas was limited — only 4% of combat deaths were due to gas — however, the proportion of non-fatal casualties was high, and gas remained one of the soldiers' greatest fears. Because it was possible to develop effective countermeasures to gas attacks, it was unlike most other weapons of the period.

How to Get Rid of What You Don't Want
By eHow Home & Garden Editor
If you find that your home is cluttered with items you no longer use, not to fret. There still may be use and life left in your discards, and with a little effort, you may even convert some castoffs into cold, hard cash as well as deductions on your next tax return. Use this chart to get started.
Step 1
Get rid of old clothes. Sell them at a garage sale, yard sale. Consign never-worn or designer-brand items less than 2 years old. Sell vintage clothing (made more than 20 years ago) to retro stores. Donate to charities and shelters.
Step 2
Get rid of excess wire hangers. If they're in good shape, give them to dry cleaners or charity stores.
Step 3
Donate old eyeglasses and give away old towels, blankets and linens.
Step 4
Dump old magazines ... but not in the trash. Donate them to hospitals, nursing homes, veterans services and doctors' offices. Donate needless subscriptions to public libraries and schools. And, of course, you can recycle.
Step 5
Offer others the benefit of your books. Sell them to book resale stores or online, or donate them to charities, schools and shelters.
Step 6
Sell computers, printers and other technology devices online or through classifieds. Or you can donate them to and other charitable organizations.
Step 7
Sell old musical instruments to resell stores, or donate them to school music programs.

One of the basic causes for all the trouble in the world today is that people talk too much and think too little. They act impulsively without thinking. I always try to think before I talk.
