This is a Kevlar™ umbrella that can be shot at a suicide bomber (in this case a hippie) to incapacitate them and contain the explosion. Also an effective against public urination.

these guys must be tired or some thing. Anyone else see a remarkable simularity to The Running Man starring Arnold Swartzenager?

He appears to have swallowed the bomb whole and smoking the remainder of the joint in his hand is the switch. This appears to be a way to suffocate the suicide bomber so there is no explosion and we can study the effect on the brain before a bomber pulls the trigger.

The hippie isn't a terrorist, he's just trying to hide his bongs from "the man"

Gee, I don't understand why bomb squads and SWAT teams all over the country aren't clamouring for this miracle of modern science. :P Seriously though, I am the hippy your mother warned you about. I have a flower and I'm not afraid to use it.

Next time use Gandhi for example. More realistic, dude

If you're going to San - Fran - Cisco... Wear some explosives in your duds! Wow, impressive! I want one to use on my kids when they run away from me in grocery stores. "Dad's serious! You stay right by the cart or I'll shoot that huge kevlar net at you again!"

Does it also repel noxious methane expelled from one's rear??

Notice the mad bomber is a sixties-era hippie type, and he seems to be smiling! Hey pal, didja ever hear of Hesbullah? The real mad bomber types don't smile, hell, they're about to die. A nice variation on this would be air bag type installations that would drop down to cover single seats, say on public transport, trains busses etc. Damn, I'm losing it.
