Armor

Quick, what does “DERP” translate to in Italian?

I hope they make body armor as good as they make pizza and desserts.  Wow what a boss… I’m so impressed. *eye roll*  I said it once, and i’ll say it again… stuff like this is just is not necessary.  I’d much rather see some scientific data than some derp.

I can’t wait until one or more of you guys says “Why does it matter that the body armor is Italian?… very petty Mike.  If they were testing American body armor like this I bet you wouldn’t make fun of the videos. Oh yea, and the guy testing the body armor is gay, so that makes you even more of an asshole.”   hahah I still think it’s hilarious a handful of you guys got pissed off that I referred to Rachel Maddow as “he” again yesterday. If you haven’t figured it out already, I use this blog primarily to poke fun at things I find humor in.

Thoughts?

Not as effective as a regular body armor, but much more delicious:

Maybe I’m too much of a carnivore, but most of the stuff that Epic Meal Time makes looks delicious to me.  You really can’t go wrong with bacon and other assorted meats, deep fried and mixed with cheese and Jack Daniels.

Why have a “we stand behind our products” video when you actually don’t? :P

The integrity of the glass didn’t even look compromised when the guy wimped out. Normally I wouldn’t harp on something like this, but the last 15 seconds of the video had the phrase “Defenshield [literally] stands behind its products” which burnt itself into my brain.

I cringe when I see testing videos like that anyway.  Putting a live person behind the glass doesn’t do anything that a watermelon or pretty much anything else couldn’t accomplish.

An armored, 4-door, 4-wheel drive, 6.0 turbo diesel truck capble of running on JP-8 and other military fuels. This Non-Standard Tactical Truck (NSTT) can be internally transported in a CH / MH 47 helicopter. Built from the ground-up with the intent of being armored and operating in unforgiving terrain, the NSTT can operate in any denied environment.

Looks like a capable truck, that’s for sure. The suspension looks to be a bit soft, especially on the track at the 1 minute mark.  I suppose they likely go with a standard style suspension and try to make it decent on most terrain, rather than a complex adjustable one that would be a pain to repair.

The big WTF point in the video is at 1:09 when two guys are in the truck taking live fire from an AK-47. Like Solomon mentioned in his post, why the hell would you do that?  I get the fact that you are confident in your product, but really?? Putting a camera inside would have sufficed.  I’m surprised those guys agreed to something so stupid.
