Motorola RAZR shares a distinction with Zippo

The Motorola RAZR cell phone shared a distinction with the Zippo lighter when it recently stopped a bullet that hit Louisiana resident R. J. Richards in the chest while he was mowing his lawn. Apparently the bullet was not fired at Richards intentionally but was a nearly spent 45 caliber bullet from a “hunting accident”. However it did hit him hard enough to destroy the phone.

More at Man catches bullet in false teeth

A terrified man survived an assassin’s bullet when it ricocheted off his wife’s cheek – and he caught it in his false teeth. The miraculous escape happened in Zagreb, Croatia, as the two men started [fighting] about an overdue debt.

Within minutes one pulled out a pistol and blasted the couple at point blank range.

“He was so close you’d think that one or both of them would be dead instantly,” said one police source in Zagreb, Croatia.

But the bullet just grazed the cheekbone of terrified blonde Mirna Cavlovic and carried straight on towards her husband Stipe, 37. Then amazingly the shot got caught in Stipe’s dentures and fell harmlessly to the ground.
