That's cool. Sort of like insects, who don't have internal skeletons.

Make sure they have a manual inflation tube, located near the waistline.

If it is from Irobot then it will invariably bounce itself around the house until it accidentally locks itself in the closet forcing the soldier to go "well where the heck is the sob" and have to search the whole house.

Look up Ironman IV on Youtube, Tony Stark weaponized Boxing.

I have to admit it: I didn't have much interest in the show, but when that happened be airing when I walked in the room, it was the funniest thing I'd seen on television in months.

More importantly, does it fall under the category of legitimate rape?

On the plus side - that will make war footage far more cheerful. For too long it's just been bombs going off and tracer fire. Now, baghdad bob will have the colorful backdrop of thousands of these things descending to wreak havoc on an undeserving populace!
