Don’t Run With Your Mortar Board You Could Poke an Eye Out

I read in another article they have been doing this since 1912 and because someone needed some stitches a couple of years ago from a flying mortar board they want to put it to a stop .
I mean come on!

Students have been asked not to throw their hats in the air when they graduate because it is too DANGEROUS

May 27, 2008 Anglia Ruskin University, which has campuses in Cambridge and Chelmsford, Essex, does not want graduates to throw their mortar boards into the sky in case the corner of the hat injures someone. The request was made in a statement on the university's website.
Alongside details about which robes students should wear at graduation ceremonies, the statement reads: "It is requested that graduates do not throw the hat up into the air.
"This not only causes damage to the hats but it can also cause injury if the corner of the hat hits the graduate or others who may be nearby."

It seems like every time I look up there is another use for airbags. We started with the basic car airbags then there was the passenger airbags & then side airbags and then recently someone invented a motorcycle jacket airbag.

Then I just ran across this invention. If you hit a pedestrian your bumper senses that you have just hit a human being and an airbag deploys on your hood to protect the guy you just hit.

So I’m thinking I better get on this airbag bandwagon before it passes me by.
So I came up with a couple of ideas of my own. These are hot off the drawing board, patents pending.
We have all heard of taking a bite out of crime now you can take a crime out of a bite. After surgically implanting this special tooth into mans best friend your lawsuit worries are over. This clever little incisor senses human skin only and if more than 10 lbs of pressure is applied Fido has a mouthful of airbag. K9 airbag tooth can be reloaded & used over & over again.
There is nothing worse when you are receiving CPR and have somebody pumping too hard on your chest. Not only do you have to worry about your stopped heart you suffer additional pain with cracked ribs. When50 lbs plus of pressure is applied out pops your rib saving airbag from you CPR glove. Now with CPR glove your ribs can take a sigh of relief.
