Apparently the Amish practice of "plain dress" extends to marathon running, because Amish runner Leroy Stolzfus has been showing up to races dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, black slacks, and suspenders. However, he does wear sneakers. More: York Dispatch.
Designed by Lee Pauwels of Los Angeles to protect his six-year-old son from harmful atomic rays given off by a nuclear explosion. He noted that the suit wouldn't protect his son from the concussion of the blast, "But authorities believe a person could survive the blast at much closer range if he were lying down and wearing the suit. Afterward he'd be able to leave the area that had become contaminated by harmful rays."
I wonder if this suit still survives somewhere, stored in someone's attic. Well, it must be around if even atomic rays couldn't harm it. This is the kind of thing that should be on display in the Smithsonian (if I were running it).

One of these will set you back about $700, but are sold only in Japan. via OhGizmo!
Students from Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam Netherlands collaborated on a project that would almost certainly have PETA's approval. They used the food waste from a large local market to make fruitleather. The product was used to make purses as well as swatches to show the different colors available depending on the fruits used. Leather you don't have to hide.
