Russia’s Crazy Bulletproof Helmet Test Is Dangerously WTF
Oh, those crazy Russians.
The description for this video simply says, "Testing the strength of a helmet K6 3 real shot from a service pistol."
What it doesn't tell you is that the helmet is tested by some poor sap who has to wear it while on the other end of the bullet. How'd he draw the short end of that stick and land this plum assignment?
And we don't even want to think about what the consequences would be if the helmet was not up to snuff. Or, worse, what if the shooter's aim wasn't so good and he missed a few inches below the helmet.
The bottom line is the guy in the helmet deserves some hazard pay. And some more vacation time. Unless of course he's doing this voluntarily, in which case, he needs to get to a shrink to delve into the real-life twist on Russian roulette he enjoys.
