OK that was legitimately funny. I can envision a scene with Larry, Moe and Curly in the enemy trenches where they suddenly and involuntarily fall into their eye poking, head smashing, ball busting routines.... :lol:

Ooh, I wonder if it could be used for break-dancing.

Actually, they just need some way to replicate the ability rabbits supposedly have to dodge air rifle pellets... or that skill might just be entirely within the realm of excuses incompetent shots come up with. :roll:

I honestly wouldn't know. I've never seen these break-dancing rabbits.

@psycix: Is that really an appropriate statement?

I know we're not all that politically correct here, but perhaps that's taking it too far, and we should consider that it's not really something that should be joked about?

I heard something about this, Wasn't one of the options like making the soldier drop to the ground? I would imagine that would be a horrible idea,

*sets scene*

ONE YEAR LATER

Army base full of soldiers in Iraq, soldiers walking around doing army stuff, WHEN A SHOT RINGS OUT

everybody drops to the ground, like dominoes

soldiers all get sniped because they can be dropped and disarmed with the simple firing of a bullet

Iraq remains a dictatorship, all Americans get killed,

No one ever uses the technology again.

I think it only reacts to bullets coming at you so one bullet goes off. One guy moves and the rest drop him. If than can develop technology to dodge bullets why not make it so they shoot back instantly as well ?

Yep, if they can detect the trajectory that accurately, getting a weapon bead on the source should be easy, possibly even shooting back before the other bullet arrives.

The thing that video doesn't mention WHY fainting goats exist.

They were bred to protect valuable sheep herds from predator attacks. Put a cheap goat in there, and if the herd comes under attack, the goat collapses - an easy target for the predator - while the remainder of the herd escapes. Fairly clever actually.

I guess that would be a bad thing to have the president wearing (or any public official for that matter), seeing as generally they are not the one you want to be sacrificing for the benefit of the herd...

Dunno, I'd make an exception for Boris Johnson.

That's the wonderful thing about politician jokes. You can put almost any name in there, and it can still be funny.

And no, I don't know everything... (yet, anyway)
My brain just absorbs info, and it's generally good at recalling it again, even if I didn't need to remember it.
