Fortier & Co. Makes Stylin’ Body Armor

Fortier & Co. Makes Stylin’ Body Armor – Those of our readers who are aspiring rap artists should pay close attention. Frontier & Co. works with big name clothing designers like Burberry, YSL, Kenneth Cole, etc. to design body armor that blends in naturally with your apparel. Take for instance this beautiful trenchcoat from Burberry. It uses ballistic fibers that are stronger than steel, yet lightweight, to protect you from oncoming bullets. It also doubles as an incredibly handsome coat. Unfortunately, protection and style do not come cheap. The aforementioned coat will set you back $2195 for the basic model. That means you could end up spending some serious cash if you’re worried about being taken out by an AK-47. Fortier & Co. Body Armor [Luxist] [CrunchGear]

CE-Oh no he didn’t, part XXXV: NBC sez piracy hurts ‘corn growers’

CE-Oh no he didn't, part XXXV: NBC sez piracy hurts 'corn growers' -

Filed under: ,

Although some may argue that piracy is (at least on some level) beneficial, it looks like NBC has taken that sentiment to the opposing extreme with its latest comments. In a purported filing with the FCC calling for enhanced regulation of the internet in an attempt to stifle evil P2P activity, NBC blurted out a string of text that it surely hoped would be overlooked. Alas, hardly any ridiculous claims go unseen these days, so now we're faced with this gem: "In the absence of movie piracy, video retailers would sell and rent more titles. Movie theaters would sell more tickets and popcorn. Corn growers would earn greater profits and buy more farm equipment." There's absolutely no need for us to pick apart the aforementioned quote, after all, we're fairly certain the absurdity shines right through on its own.
