Your brother should not have gone to Iraq if he don`t want to die yet. War is death, you know.
that was retarded, what? you WANT WAR?i hope you go to war some day, and i hope your enemy is wearing one of those while he shots you in the name of profit.
what is your problem? my uncle died in iraq okay.its not funny that someone was shot there. how immature can you get? and now for my comment on the video.... too bad we dont give our troops armor in iraq so it wouldnt matter.
because it is human nature to be the best. and if that means eliminating the competition, then anything goes. or could it be because whenever we mess up in politics (which seems to be alot) we send thousands of troops to kill or be killed to stall for time so we can come up with a solution?
"Hopefully if soldiers get to wear this those idiot liberals will stop yelling about the war."
the reason us `idiot liberals` are `yelling` about `the war` isnt solely because of people getting killed. have you ever thought that maybe going into the war in the first place was a bad idea? how about the motives behind it all? are the lives of 2000 US soldiers worth paying 50 cents less per gallon?
Call me an "idiot liberal" if you like. I just don`t want to see people losing their lives, including you.

No, they mean OTHER people getting hit or shot in the groin. That IS funny. But then it makes you feel like you shouldn`t laugh at the poor soul.I do anyway.
But even normal flak vests worn by our military don`t pad the blow too well.. Getting shot in the chest still means deep painful bruises and broken ribs, especially with higher power rifle ammunition(smaller pistol ammo`s have less energy obviously, so they don`t hurt nearly as bad.)
The key difference with this armor though would be the weight and coverage.. for about the same weight as a normal flak jacket, they get whole body coverage, or coverage of the vitals at a significantly reduced weight.
This is very good, as soldiers that are less weighed down by equipment have greater stamina and increased mobility. Even if the impact was less padded, and resulted in greater amounts of bruising or broken bones, its a good trade. I`d rather wear 5 pounds of armor that kept me from dying, than 20 pounds that did the same and padded the impact spots, because you don`t get shot very often.
Uuuh, wouldn`t a fabric be better as body armour than liquid?
you wouldn`t be laughing if the terrorists were blowing up buses and police stations in american, would you?
That looks like it has potential, but I wonder what would happen if you applied it to skin. Would you be invinceable? Probably not. Would you look like a jackass? Hell yes.
I`m all about the military...but showing this kind of thing on television is NOT a good idea.
doesnt really hurt that bad, but it makes you feel hella nauseus for about 10 minutes if you are hit hard enough...
The reason body armor stops bullets isnt because it was hard. if it was, then they would just ducttape a piece of iron to the soldier. it is because of tightly woven steel threads that are so tight that they cannot be forced apart, and are so strong that a bullet cannot break through it.
this reminded me of cornstarch+water. you get a goop that is flexible like a liquid until you poke it or something. then it becomes more solid like. that is because when you poke it, you dont give the cornstarch molecules time to move out of the way, and as such they slow down the force. and they eventually soften up, just like this armor.
That`s exactly the point. Displacement happens anyway, and theres no way to prevent that in any body armor suit (unless you would like to wear 100 pounds of steel alloy around). True though, it does allow for more displacement than current armor, however, one could cushion the impact with some sort of light cushioning.
this guy`s monotone voice made the clip boring.
