                        Bomb suits are useless. They are uncomfortable and get in the way of disarming a bomb and it does nothing to protect you from even a blast wave. Guy Pierce probably would have made it running away from the bomb with no suit on.

                                    If there's a thin yellow wire, a thin green wire, and a bulky red wire, always notice the bulky red wire last.

                                                    If you're an officer who spends his tour of duty behind a desk, think twice about going on a ride along to experience the combat zone.
