Telecom worker Wang XiaoKang surprised his coworkers and especially building security when he arrived at the office in Shanghai wearing this homemade, 110 pound armor he built after watching Iron Man. The 25-year-old spend about 3,000 yuan (US $460) on high-density foam, LEDs, wires, tubes, batteries, etc., and the suit even comes with a custom-build arc reactor light in the chest and a hidden cooling fan. Thereís a video and a bunch of pictures below.
He says it took him three months to build. He also says the security guards initially wouldnít let him enter the building. Why not? Hasnít everyone gone to work looking like War Machine? XiaoKang says he was so happy with his suit that heíll work on a Mark III replica suit next. We think we might know what his motivation is:
He claims his armour has proven to be a success, with his bosses praising him and women falling in love with him. [Telegraph (http://widget.uproxx.com/b/130/http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/picturesoftheday/8572445/Pictures-of-the-day-13-June-2011.html?image=6), emphasis mine]
I can totally see that happening. I threw some panties at the screen when I saw this video. I donít even know whose panties they were or how they got in my house. Heís that good.

No I'm straight, I just haven't been on the site in a long time and I'm kind of lazy when it comes to changing my sig. BTW there is an apostrophe in "You've." I fixed it for you don't worry, and the correct term for a gay person is Homosexual.

Fuck yes.

Especially when he goes on tour with doom.
But since S&C won't drop I doubt the 2 will tour.
