iPods will save your life. It’s true.

The next time your ma yells at you for never taking your headphones off, a good reply would be: OHMYGAH MAWM, I’m wearing my iPod for my own PROTECTION.

And then read her this story from Gizmodo.

For those of you lazy types, let me break it down for you: Kevin Garrad was on patrol in Iraq when he came face to face with an enemy. “Both opened fire, and the bullet heading toward Kevin hit his chest right where his iPod was, which was enough to slow down the bullet to not pierce entirely through the body armor.

So there you have it. His iPod literally saved is life. How many people can say that?
