A few years ago, I was at a party chatting with someone I had met only a few minutes ago. I don't remember what we were talking about, but it was generic party conversation. Out of nowhere, she said, "You were really into Dune in high school, weren't you?" Not one of my prouder moments. Sure, I'm a nerd and all, but is it that obvious?
It's true, though. I was really into Dune in high school. Thus, my first thought when reading about these vests was that the US Army is coming closer and closer to developoing a stillsuit.
