CIA Mentored By Magicians

Actually, come to think of it, if you’re dodging bullets you have much bigger problems than any pair of sunglasses can cure.  For the rest of us, the Japan Self-Defense Force Sunglasses use lenses that can withstand the impact of a 0.3 inch diameter object hitting it at 106 mph.

I’m too lazy to figure out what that is in feet, but it’s probably a lot.  No, they can’t actually protect you from a speeding bullet. Maybe you should try ducking.  The glasses are officially endorsed by the Japanese military. Wait – Japan has a military?
