What, Part 2

Battle, er, bottle armor:

It takes only a few minutes to down a soft drink, but the plastic bottle it comes in is designed to last for centuries. In the eyes of Kosuke Tsumura, designer for the Final Home brand of urban survival clothing and accessories, the durability and abundance of PET plastic bottles makes them an ideal material for clothing – and armor. At the request of the world’s largest cola cartel, Tsumura made this suit of PET bottle armor by slicing up bottles and sewing the pieces together with transparent nylon thread. The armor may not hold up well in combat, but it looks cool as hell and it won’t biodegrade until long after you are gone.

Alrighty then.

The Smartest Thing Tom Friedman Has Ever Said

Hard for me to argue with today’s column, especially this part:

9/11 has made us stupid.

Yes, I think that just about sums it up.
