 Weird, It's almost like wearing the safety vest would make them  less safe.

This reminds me of methods prostitutes use to catch undercover cops. They ask the possible cop to do something a law-abiding person wouldn't do, like expose himself.

I'm starting to think that all this safety crap is actually going to make it more dangerous. The point of reflective vests is to draw attention to a person,  but if you put everyone in them eventually people will become desensitized to it. Just like if every car had the same flashers as a tow truck all the time eventually you wouldn't even notice them.

How about a warning about the NSFW nude protestor pic at the bottom of the page?

That's why I got a bright orange bulletproof flotation airbag vest that says "Blogger" on it.
For safety.
Of course, now everyone thinks that I'm a spy from the Alps.

spent many a night in Afghanistan wearing a reflective belt (for SAFETY).  Nothing creepier than knowing you stick out like the surface of the sun, when you're out by the perimeter at night.  In a combat zone.

How else will they know who needs to be taken out first?

Aussie_As: It is hard to know whether Australia should be more embarrassed by its security agencies (the now-open files they kept on various left-wing artists, activists and celebrities in the 1960's make for hilarious and cringe-worthy reading) or the Murdoch media's News.com.au. I can tell you neither have much support over here.


eh -- its hard for me to be upset about the left wing activists and stuff being spied on. Its more funny than anything. Its a good example of how dumb police state policies are...

Canada had the exact same ting happen in the 60's. The rcmp actually had a dossier on Rita Macneil in the 70's -- she was a 'feminist activist' and by that i mean she sang songs about strong women and ate allot of cake. Too much cake maybe. It was all born out of fear that their left wing leanings would make them easy marks for Russian spies.

Fat folk singers are a threat to national security...
