  4. I've seen that outfit somewhere else.

    • That was the first thing that came to my head as well... I was going to post something about that being a pile of books. I understand that there's to be a recent film production of this story to be released in the spring!

      The helmets are all wrong. Besides, the THX1138 robo-guards scream CHP motorcycle cops to me...but maybe thats just me. I watched way too much CHiPs as a kid.

  7. I took a picture of these guys myself. When I was in Paris the hostel we stayed at caught on fire and we were evacuated. They had their face shields up and one was really cute! We were pretty entertained by their outfits, but the drama of evacuating at 7am on Sunday morning dragging a duffel bag and in my pajamas eclipsed them.

    I think they're just overcompensating for their idiotic police outfits.
