I think it is sorrowful that this invention could become popular. But it is not as sorrowful as things would be, if there were not clever spirits
around to construct such things. It was terrible that before antibiotic drugs, people could die from simple infections. It was terrible that lack of
sanitation lead to so many deaths in early human history, and even in the middle part of the last millenium. But inventions like drugs, drainage, and
sanitation solved those issues.
One thing strikes me about this backpack however. It seems to be quite small, considering its intended purpose. In my opinion, although one would
want to appear "cool" at school, assuming of course one subscribes to the utterly unimportant opinion of ones peer group as to ones level of thermal
negativity, one would also want a backpack designed to stop bullets, to cover the whole of the spine surely?
The pack, in its current shape, stops just above the begining of the lumbar region of the spine, injuries to which, can result in paralysis of
varying severity and longevity. Why not make a larger pack, that covers all the way down to the meat of the rump? At least then the chances of
suffering the harrowing effects of a spinal injury could also be reduced somewhat.
And another thing, if the bullet proof back pack is a good idea, why not just get your kids a kevlar body glove, reinforced under garments, tungsten
capped boots? Go the whole hog! I mean, if things are that bad, that a bullet proof back pack is required, then surely the other measures I mention
would be reasonable also? Perhaps these horrific attacks will lead to more streamlined, stylish personal protective gear?
Perhaps the teachers will be coming into work with those sharp looking bullet proof suits, like the One Obama wore a few times.
Heres a site that might just get some attention from the new generation, in this darkened age in which they are living...
Is stuff like this the future of back to school fashion?
