Umbrellas To Defend RP President?
It's everywhere in the net. News and features on the use of Philippine body guards of power umbrellas to defend Philippine President Glora Macapagal Arroyo. I am just not sure if these articles and blogs commenting on the use of power umbrellas to defend the Philippine President are words of praise or meant to debase the country's weapon of choice.
Zoo commented that the umbrella is the top weapon of choice being carried by PGMA's entourage wherever they go. Even Gizmodo commented featured the $180 unbreakable umbrellas as multi-purpose weapons that can "kill the rain" and "kill people".
There is a video of flexibility expert Thomas Kurz using the umbrella to chop watermelons and it worked fine.
