Move over regular shorts, exoshorts are the hip, new way to reduce the metabolic rate of walking and running

quote [ A pair of fitted shorts may not look much like the high-tech robotic exoskeletons of Hollywood films. But this seemingly simple device, which tugs on the wearer’s legs with each step, probably represents the first exosuit capable of significantly assisting humans in both walking and running. ]

They went from exoleg-warmers in 2017 to exoshorts. Expect exospeedos next.

Like people aren't fucking lazy enough. We want to make walking easier now?! The west is turning into a hippo-herd of overfat fucktards. The last thing we need to be doing is making those last bits of exercise people are forced to get by walking around even lazier and easier.

I'm waiting for exo-body suits, like they had in Starship Troopers (the book, not that sad abortion of a movie.) It gave the user the speed of a formula one dragster, the armor class of an M1 Abram's tank, and the firepower of a doomsday survivalists basement. Pretty much the basis of all anime produced in the 80's and 90's. Coolest thing in the book, and not even a mention of it in the movie...

Check out the book.

He also goes a bit deeper into Rico's flogging at basic, to the point where Heinlein looks like he had a little more than a writing interest in S&M and Bondage.

Isn't that basically a penis?

I think I plugged more butts with my fingers than my penorz, to be honest.
