What are you wearing under there? THUNDERwear?!

I was just reading an article about new underwear that can measure your health. These “bio-undies” have sensors that keep track of your heart rate, breathing, and butt odor. (Just kidding about the last one.) 

But seriously, “bio-undies” would be a good way to track the health of soldiers in battle…the undies would even show if the soldier needed to drink some water!
Speaking of people with guns, we can now go from the smartest underwear ever invented to the stupidest! There is a type of underwear called Thunderwear that is designed so that a person can carry a handgun with him while he goes jogging, plays basketball, or just lounges around in his underwear. (Click "Read more" to continue.)

Why does a person need a gun to go jogging? Well, the jogger might see a coyote and decide he needs to shoot it. That’s what the governor of Texas did with a laser-sighted pistol. (I don't believe his story for a second, BTW.) Anyway, this is from the Thunderwear website:
“Thunderwear was designed by a wearer. It provides a stable platform for the most comfortable, concealed carry possible. We anchor the weight around the hipbones... This distributes the weight of your weapon (and extra magazine) evenly around the hips... The weapon... will not interfere with normal or rigorous activity. When you sit down, the weapon fits down comfortably between your legs...Be as active as you want.” 

My favorite part of that is the first sentence: “Thunderwear was designed by a wearer.” Wow! That means someone who WEARS underwear designed it! How’d they find an expert like that?
