Slam Cam: Armor Suit Revisited

In a perennial favorite I revisit each Friday before the 4th of July, I wanted to revisit one of literally the most piss in your pants funny videos on all of YouTube.

Canadian inventor and mad scientist Troy Hurtubise designed an armor suit that eclipses anything Murray Neil, Allen Bain, PEO Soldier or DARPA could ever create in their ballistic labs. We learned two years ago that Troy's suit may find its way into the Canadian army for use in Iraq and Afghanistan (though I think he might have forgotten that there never were any Canucks in Iraq).

Though Ward and I scoured the chow halls of Kandahar and its environs looked for Troy's suit, we didn't see one Canadian soldier wearing it, nor did we find any of our northern neighbors who'd even heard of it.

But Kit Up! has a suggestion on this steamy 4th. As we consider patriots like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and James Monroe, let's consider other "patriots" out there who are willing to literally get smashed in the face with a swinging log to help their brethren in the fight for freedom (even if some of them are Canadian).

Have a great 4th and we'll see you on the 6th.
