Admiral McRaven says special ops will have working “Iron Man” suits by 2018. Given that it’s “a collaborative effort involving 56 corporations, 16 government agencies, 13 universities, and 10 national laboratories,” I suspect 2028 is closer to the mark.

And I suspect that “working” will turn out to be a huge exaggeration in the same vein as those “working” Obamacare web sites.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. There’s the old advice for picking up girls at parties:

    1. Go ugly early.
    2. If an interested woman doesn’t meet your standards, lower your standards.
    3. No girl is ugly with your dick in her mouth.

    Applying that to top-tier government contractors:

    1. Go expensive early.
    2. If the delivered product doesn’t meet your standards, lower your standards.
    3. No contractor performs poorly with your hand in his pocket.
