Business Insider has a story (click) about the deep-pocket Pentagon’s quest to develop “Super Soldiers” via futuristic technology like Super Underpants that made me giggle for it’s ludicrousness, mainly because American soldiers (and police officers) are, first and foremost, so fucking fat. If you live near a US military installation you know exactly what I'm talking about.
Dear General Pentagon Sir,
Want Super Soldiers? Put all military personnel on a mandatory diet and fitness program, no exceptions. The Pentagon dictates to military personnel how they can and cannot wear their goddamn hair, for fuck’s sake, yet not that they must be physically fit to fight?

The Military Times (click) has multiple stories fully acknowledging this easily-fixable issue.
