A Prize In Every Box

This is a place for the random musings and life experiences of one Fliven, who looks for life's fun little surprises, even when its in a giant box of stale, tasteless foodstuffs.

Shocking News

Its been getting more hectic at work these days...apparently, since I was good little employee and did all my work, they decided to heap work that other people had put off to the last minute on my plate. Is that fair, I ask you? And will I get any kudos for this? Probably not. Not that I'm bitter.

For those blog readers in the DC area, I could use suggestions for places to live...looking for a 1 bedroom, large-enough-to-breathe-in kitchen, close to a metro stop, with a pool available, reasonably priced. Am thinking of swinging by wherever it was that Red was living across from the Zoo and getting some literature. Did that have a pool? I can't remember.

The only things over the next month I'm looking forward to are the movie 300 coming out on Friday, and seeing Behtia at the end of the month. Otherwise, its looking like work and that's about it.

The most amazing thing I have to show you is this coat that was made for women to prevent assaults. But can you imagine wearing this on the metro?! When people are getting in your space and stepping on your feet and sticking their elbows in your ribs and whatnot, just flip the switch and instant space! Brilliant! Plus it would make a good addition to a superhero arsenal. Check out the videos. Here's a blurb:

"The No-Contact Jacket is a wearable defensive jacket created to aid women in their struggle for protection from violence. When activated by the wearer, 80,000 volts of low amperage electric current pulses just below the surface shell of the entire jacket. This exo-electric
armor prevents any person from unauthorized contact with the wearer's body. If an assailant were to grab hold of the wearer the high voltage exterior would interrupt their neurological impulses which control voluntary muscle movement. The neuromuscular system would be overwhelmed causing disorientation and loss of balance to occur and of course pain. The pain experienced is non-lethal but is enough to effectively and immediately deter contact with the wearer and provide a critical life saving oppurtunity for escape."
