1549 - Am I the prototypical "funny dressed geek"?

Canadian inventor Troy Hurtubise has created a lightweight suit of armor intended to protect soldiers from many different kinds of weapons, while being mass-producible and relatively inexpensive. This has gotten a fair amount of coverage around the web.

What's interesting is that at least two bloggers have commented on the invention by comparing it to my costume.

I can only guess that this is because I've become a symbol for all sorts of unusual outfits worn by folks outside of a movie studio...

current mood: [mood icon] contemplative
current music: Electric Light Orchestra - Fifth of Beethoven

It does seem to rank high in gratuitous rounded pads.

I expect those aren't gratuitious, unless you define gratuity as "Here's a tip... I stopped a bullet for you."

Maybe THAT'S why they have a watch dangling at the crotch...if people are going to hit that area, you might as well have SOME action going on.

That watch wouldn't be a Timex, would it? "It takes a licking, and keeps on ticking..."

P.S. ELO did a cover of "Roll Over Beethoven," but I'd have sworn someone else did "A Fifth of Beethoven."

You're right. A quick Google shows it was done by Walter Murphy. I'll have to edit the ID3 tag in that file...
