I did think about high guard armour, but that is not invented yet, any other full body protection is rather cumbersome, so what are the options.

Something like Gundam armor with a Kevlar inner layer with air cushioning and thermal control.

She just needs a good man to boss around and do things for her. Then she can post about how he got hurt.

I could suggest something if I knew what this was about. I do enjoy your thoughful and kind remarks Evo, so I don't want anything bad to happen to you.

I'd say a good doctor to repair everything 'right' (forever) and two months paid vacation someplace where there is zero stress

two months?---I meant six

:rofl: That certainly would be the best idea. Otherwise, I think we'll hire an interior decorator for her who specializes in padded wallpaper.

Probably the best protection would be to bronze her and put her on the mantle.

Oh, never mind; she'd just fall off and hit her head on a log.

I was thinking of a belt fitted with GPS and satellite surveillance, combine the two and any time Evo is near any thing dangerous the belt will give her a little electric shock.

It'd have to be damned accurate sat nav other wise shes gonna get shocked within 6 feet of anything.

Some 1 piece racing leathers would be good since they'd help set Evo's arm and movement would be slow with the protection of some kevlar body armour over strategic places. Going to the toilet is an issue though. :uhh:

Getting dates might be a problem unless we throw in some matching stilettos and find someone with a penchant for body armor.

Then again....... it could add to her mystique.

Oh, there's probably someone out there into that...there's someone into pretty much anything you can imagine (and some things you wish you hadn't imagined).

But, we might run into the trouble of her not being able to run out of the way of the boulder that suddenly falls from nowhere if her mobility is reduced, and Wollie's shock suit is likely to electrocute her. C'mon guys, you have to think harder...this is Evo who can damage herself in the most unlikely and unexpected ways!

Who needs stilettos when you can have these:

Ooh, those look nice and safe. :approve: Do the heels light up so oncoming cars can see her at night? I think we need to add retractable cleats to the bottoms of the shoes too, so she has enough traction to avoid sliding into the icy ravine, but can retract them to avoid puncturing herself with them any other time. :biggrin:

Oh my, I went to sleep in my flannel cat and dog PJ's and I wake up in full body armor and bubble wrapped with a GPS cattle prod. :bugeye:

kurdt, love the boots, but Moonbear is right, we need to add retractable tungsten cleats, or I can just slip my ice cleats over them! I do have a full line of klutz accessories.

The boots are surprisingly grippy. Since they're race spec the sole is designed to grip even with oils present. You don't want to fall over before you get to your bike. If you encounter some ice or snow then the cleats might be handy. :smile:

Much better than mitigating the consequences of those mishaps is preventing them. You need a guardian angel.

Jesus webster, what is that white thing? Its gonna give me nightmares, LOL. I suggest one of those Kiwi things, I think they're called Zorbs. Its basically an inflated clear plastic hamster ball for humans.

We should pool our money and buy Evo a human-sized hamster ball that is too big to fit out the back door so she can't roll into the ditch of darn (oops! the Chasm of Doom...) :rolleyes:
