This got covered by Slashdot a few weeks ago. I think the guy is very brave and certainly deserves some kudos for giving it a good shot and wearing it. However I think he needs to hit the gym and before he looks his... err.. 'best' in it.

Oh - and get a codpiece Posted Image

Um........ Well, the guy is brave, that's for sure. Moe.

Yup.. this poor fellow was lambasted on both Slashdot and Fark.

Personally, I think "good costume" and that he was brave to wear it. But I gotta agree with Rob. If one is going to wear a tight body suit like that, get a codpiece. Posted Image

This guy was in Kimmel last week. A very interesting interview. Kimmel: Let me ask you, what made you decide to build a TRON suit 20 years after the fact? Jay: It wasn't until very recently that the technology became available to do something like this. Kimmel: Oh, I see. It was a surreal interview.

So this is what happens when TRON eats nothing but McDonalds? Nice suit though, the neon tubing idea was cool.

I read through all of the post before I hit the link. I was about to ask what a "codpiece" was, then I looked at the pictures. :b I think I know what it is now.

Sweet Holy Moses, Chris! Nothing says Mid-Afternoon Wake-up than 360 degree view of a fat man in a skin tight suit.

Guess that is what you call "fat binary." -Keith
As far as I'm concerned, it's a damned shame that a field as potentially dynamic and vital as journalism should be overrun with dullards, bums, and hacks, hag-ridden with myopia, apathy, and complacence, and generally stuck in a bog of stagnant mediocrity. - Hunter S. Thompson, 1958, from cover letter he wrote for a newspaper job.

Yeah, he definitely needs to convert that body from FAT 32 to NTFS in a hurry. (ba-da-bum)


The epitome of a disturbing image. However, it did turn out to be just as cool as a Stormtrooper outfit, ie NOT. Posted Image

***BEWARE FAT GUY IN A UNITARD!!!! ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK***

I think what makes it so funny is how serious this guy is!
