Hooray for boobies!
2002-12-24 05:49:33 PM  
Knew there was a good reason for those things. Guess this is it!

This sounds like a commercial for the bullet-proof wonderbra.

"I'm twice happy, first because my prosthesis saved my life and also because now I look even more beautiful"

This is one of those inspirational stories you like to hear around the holiday season!

Anyone remember the Carol Burnett wild west sketch that had Vicki Lawrence as the hooker with the heart of gold(kang!)?

Boobies will save the world

"A plastic surgeon was called in to fix the damage and took the opportunity to increase the size of Mrs Soares' breasts with more silicone."

Behold, the power of chi-chis.

they should make these standard issue for all cops, police dogs, and police horses.

The breast defense...

imagine what her boob looks like now after being shot and the implant popped, ew.
2002-12-24 05:59:20 PM  
what? no pics?
2002-12-24 06:00:07 PM  
i guess thats one reason to get them.

personally i'd need more reasons to get my nipples cut off and reattached. do the nerve endings ever grow back????
2002-12-24 06:00:42 PM  
Now I know what I'm getting my GF for Xmas. You know, for safety and piece of mind.
2002-12-24 06:03:31 PM  
she was wearing her bullet proof chest

2002-12-24 06:06:44 PM  
In the interest of protecting our troops, we should let the army know. Subsidized implants for our women vets, yeah, that's the ticket!
2002-12-24 06:08:48 PM  
im getting all teary after reading this wonderful story of a girl and her breasts..........truly heartwarming!
2002-12-24 06:11:53 PM  
I guess she has some Soare breasts then ;-)
2002-12-24 06:14:46 PM  
Boobies... is there anything they can't do?
2002-12-24 06:15:41 PM  
Soares is a Portuguese name and since I grew up in Portuguese neighborhood we had a few word play jokes with that name. The best was - what to you call a portuguese guy with herpes? Manny Soares. eh, it was funnier when I was twelve.
2002-12-24 06:16:32 PM  
Yet another reason implants should be mandatory. Someone needs to find before and after pictures..
2002-12-24 06:20:30 PM  
Has shenanigans been called on this yet?
2002-12-24 06:22:13 PM  
That's one woman without serious injury, and millions world wide with gross fake titties! Hmmm.. It's hard to say if its worth it. Close call.
2002-12-24 06:40:06 PM  
Reminds me of the woman who was saved from a nail gun by her water-filled bra. "I just heard a voice telling me to put it on that morning."
2002-12-24 07:02:35 PM  
hmmmm - kevlar implants
2002-12-24 07:15:49 PM  
hooray for boobies!
2002-12-24 07:34:05 PM  
"I'm twice happy, first because my prosthesis saved my life and also because now I look even more beautiful"

yeah, nevermind the farking gunshot wound in it, as long as it's big and firm. LOL

It's a Christmas miracle!

I tried to post this article with a better headline:

"Woman Shot in Chest, Saved by Bullet-Proof"

2002-12-24 08:02:43 PM  
You see, they all told me I was being too shallow and superficial when I was gonna get my breasts done. I tried telling them that all I wanted was a bullet proof chest.

Damn hippies!

I could have bigger boobies AND protection! GIMMIE!
2002-12-24 08:10:02 PM  
Avixxen2: Yes they do come back, in most cases. Sometimes they don't. (Sucks for those people)
Also, you can have them put in in ways that don't involve cutting off the nipple. Feel free to research.

i think they're doing the operation now by going up through the belly button... they make an incision in the belly button, insert an unfilled breast implant with a tube attached to it, move it up and poisition it where they want it, fill up the implant and then disconnect and remove the tube. rinse and repeat for the 2nd breast. or something like that... they also insert the implants from under the arm pits, too...

*Sigh* I guess it's good that they saved her, but I just don't think women should do that to themselves.

I could understand getting implants if you had to have a breast or both breasts removed for medical reasons, but otherwise, most boobies are beautiful. Some aren't, thisis true, but I'm sure some guy out there likes pointy tits.
2002-12-24 09:09:04 PM  
I thought the most common way to insert them is under the breast line, where the scar would be barely visible. But they always have to cut off the nipples and adjust them afterwards so they will appear straight...otherwise they would point in odd directions and look stupid.
2002-12-24 09:41:36 PM  
Yet another plus for implants: Several years ago, in our area Police were able to identify a womans corpse via the serial number on her implants. All they found was the skeleton with the two implants setting on her chest!
2002-12-24 10:27:27 PM  
Hey! Anybody out there with a technical "scoop" on this? I'm thinking this is the same reason why you can't shoot guns underwater, or at least their immediate velocity is affected. Anyone? Thanks! 09:41
2002-12-24 10:52:47 PM  
This is no surprise, because you know the old saying: the breast defense is a good offense.
2002-12-24 11:55:32 PM  
"personally i'd need more reasons to get my nipples cut off and reattached. do the nerve endings ever grow back????"

They can (with small enough implants) make an incision along the outside of the alero..areol...the dark spot with the nipple in it, and stuff it in
2002-12-24 11:56:45 PM  
they do save lives. (nsfw safety picture)

I submitted this a few days ago with a better headline.
