I must say that it's awesome how something so simple can save lives. And great thinking by the person who realized this.

I think it is really good. What I can't grasp is the spokesman for the American army (sorry, I dont know who he is), advocating parents sending it out to their children, as that is easier than the army supplying it! WTF is that about! They can put bombs on planes, but not aerosol cans of silly string!

Thats cool, and its not because the army cna't supply it but because well its more particial for parents to go to the store and buy 10 or 15 cans and ship it outthemsevles.
