Mounting body armor with double-sided tape...
No, really. This idiotic thought has been brought to you by the ever-meandering mind of X-Defector.
I hate fuxerts. Everyone hates fuxerts because they suck. Drilling into the Heep's tub is no concern, but those damn nutserts are the devil. So.....suppose one was going to mount something like AEV corner armor. Why not use tape?
3M makes this industrial double-sided foam tape. It's about 1/16th inch thick or so. One inch is guaranteed to hold 30 lbs. It's weather proof, waterproof, and the adhesive is no joke. I've used this stuff in the past and removal is definitely the hardest part. It's serious stuff. There's no way a piece of corner armor is coming off from rock impacts if its attached by this stuff. And....you avoid fuxerts and everything that comes with them.
Anyone considered something like this, much less try it? I see no compelling reason why it wouldn't work...
A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.
