Egypt bans yellow vests in fear of copycat protests

Egyptian authorities have introduced restrictions on the sale of hi-vis vests in fear the clothing could inspire imitations of French protesters during next month’s anniversary of the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak.

Security officials and retailers said industrial safety equipment dealers have been instructed not to sell yellow vests to walk-in buyers and to restrict business to wholesale to verified companies, but only after securing police permission. They were told offenders would be punished, the officials said without elaborating.

In Cairo, Associated Press reported that six retailers selling safety gear said they had stopped selling the vests.

Sorry Charlie, this is not exactly right and some of your suggestions are way off the mark as there were not "lots" of other people attempting powered flight.

This is the individual who set the standards many years earlier and his designs were more advanced than the Wright Bothers in many respects.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonse_P%C3%A9naud

You are being swept along by what you appear to have read in one book.

The issues of aerodynamic control were initially addressed by Pernaud and while the Wright Brothers developed working systems, these wouldn't have made much difference to their pioneering flight that was actually about the length of many people's backyard. It's pretty clear from all the reference material available on the early days of aviation that people like Rev Burrell Cannon or maybe Percy Pilcher could have easily become the first people to undertake a manned powered flight if history had run slightly differently. Things have a habit of being developed by various people all at the same time like the jet engine and its often a matter of first past the post rather than one genius with a revolutionary idea.

Florida father has to shoot 30 year old son to save his 26 year old son.

I guess he did the right thing. It is not going to make him feel much better. Doesn't sound like the world lost much with his death.

Preferably in silence, especially on a 12 hour flight!!
