Never Take Silicone Implants to a Paintball Fight

Here's an unusual risk of playing paintball: A British woman's breast implant reportedly exploded after she was hit in the chest by a paintball, which can travel at 190 mph.

UK Paintball has now adjusted its policies accordingly. "We respectfully ask that any ladies with surgical breast implants notify our team at the time of booking," according to a statement on its website. "You will be given special information on the dangers of paintballing with enhanced boobs and asked to sign a disclaimer."

Just wait, it gets better: "You will also be issued with extra padding to protect your implants while paintballing," the statement says.

This, of course, happened within days of an FDA official reaffirming that silicone breast implants on the market were safe to use.
They have sports bras, maybe they need sports implants.

Female fencers wear a plastic protector underneath their jackets. Some years ago, all they had were individual metal protectors that fitted into inside pockets of their jackets. They were referred to as "hubcaps".

There was a recent story about implants saving a woman's life by stopping a bullet. Money well-spent in that case.
