Iron Pants
« on: February 16, 2013, 07:43:41 PM »
  This isn't a joke, but it is pretty funny if not ludicrous:

CURSES! FOILED AGAIN: It is now illegal in Colorado to wear aluminum
  underwear. "This is serious business," insists State Sen. Stephanie
  Takis, who sponsored the bill. "We have laws against using crowbars as
  theft devices, but if you were lining your underwear with aluminum
  foil, that was not a crime." It is now. Apparently, shoplifters found
  such so-called "iron pants" allow them to sneak stolen items past
  anti-theft scanners at store doors. The law also allows store security
  officers to detain people who "crackle when they walk," but provides an
  exception for aluminum britches worn for "personal amusement."

  (Colorado Springs Gazette) ...Which is probably covered under vice
  statutes.

If your brain is located in your ass, you can't protect it with a traditional tin foil hat.  If you try to protect it with tin foil underwear, would that fall under "personal amusement"?

These would probably crackle a whole lot less than homemade from Reynold's Wrap.  ;)

What if you connect a 9v battery to it can call it a toy? :P

The title is wrong. Iron pants are still legal, just not aluminium.

I consider this discrimination against those who are not into heavy metal.
