THIS Man Is A Stud

From the BBC:

An Army officer from the Highlands survived an attack in Afghanistan when a rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) bounced off his chest before exploding.

Lt David Robertson, 30, of 4 SCOTS Royal Regiment of Scotland, escaped with minor injuries.

The missile ricocheted off his body armour and detonated against his Warrior armoured vehicle.


Like I said, stud.

Teddy Roosevelt once took a bullet in the chest that was deflected by a folded speech and a glasses case in his pocket. He then proceeded to make a 90 minute speech refusing to go to the hospital. These two guys are true hosses.

It "bounced" off his body armour? What was the guy wearing? A tank?

I love that he also hit Prince Charles with a potato.

Oops, my bad, Prince William.

(In light of remedial math mentioned above, considers some remedial reading practice....)

OK Carson, if there's anyone I believe *could* bounce an RPG off his chest, you'd be on the short list.
