Fruit of the Loom to Stop Bullets???

One day we all may only need our cotton t-shirts to protect us against the war on terror.  That’s right, scientists are working on some sci-fi tech right out of a Hollywood feature.  I guess boron carbide is the 3rd strongest material on the planet similar to my own flesh, and bonds well with cotton fibers.  Yeah, I’m a Terminator posing as a web guru, but that’s for another day.

Now don’t get excited and run down to the nearest Wal-Mart you hillbillies, because this science hasn’t been perfected yet, only speculated upon.  It does sound like one day it will be a possibility though.  Imagine everyone becoming invincible from wearing their under garments.  Remember, when in doubt aim for the head!

You’ve been enlightened…
