2007ipodbullet.jpgIn the old days lives were saved by Zippo lighters.

Here’s the caption that was attached to the photo:

“My wife’s uncle works in a military hospital and told me about this. Its pretty amazing. Kevin Garrad (3rd Infantry Division) was on a street patrol in Iraq (Tikrit I believe) and as he rounded the corner of a building an armed (AK-47) insurgent came from the other side.

The two of them were within just a few feet of each other when they opened fire. The insurgent was killed and Kevin was hit in the left chest where his IPod was in his jacket pocket. It slowed the bullet down enough that it did not completely penetrate his body armor. Fortunately, Kevin suffered no wound.”

Best question: “Who’s going to buy this?
My own moment of wonder: Why did MS include wifi that won’t allow you upload music from PC to Zune without wires?!
Punchline: the last 15 seconds of the clip turn into an endorsement for the Shuffle- did Apple pay for this?!
