Transparent Face Mask

From Popular Science, March 1940:

Slipped over the head, a bag of cellulose tissue designed for use in skiing and other outdoor sports offers protection for the face without interfering with vision. The transparent mask can also be used as a shower cap, an apron, a tray cover, and a turban, the makers say.

Maybe it didn't interfere with vision, but the interfering with breathing probably posed a problem.

I kinda like the pointy "ears" it gives the wearer. Who needs batman when you can have the cellulose tissue avenger!?

I should try that and sue popular science when it doesn't go well.

I could hire a lawyer to convince a jury I found the mag. in grammas attic and thought it was a great idea!

I have some coworkers that I'd like to get to try this.

That model looks excited about the fact she is about to be bound and thrown into a trunk. We need more victims like this.

Dumbfounded - it sounds as though you have put alot of thought into that. I like it!!! Next time I'm on WU might be for other reasons though.
