    I'm a little bitter that grown-ups can't get those shoes with the flashing LEDs that all the kiddos have/had.

      That's the idea.  They're a bit clunky and un-colorful, but you're on the right track.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        --- I must really be an old grouch because those flashing LED things on kids shoes really annoys me.  It drove me so nuts in the past that when my kid got a pair of those shoes from relatives, I disabled the flashing lights in them.  Approve

          Yep, you're a grouch...maybe because you couldn't have them.

            Holy cow.  Ho. Ly. Cow.

             

            I'm a band director, and I'm now imagining what an interesting effect it would create if we stuck those on the bells of our horns in a marching show.  Oh, the epileptic seizures we could induce!

             

            Oh, and I might get some for my running shoes, too.

              Seriously.

               

              The glare emanating from the orange one in the middle and the yellow one on bottom was not the result of flash or excessive sunlight.  They were really too bright to even stand looking at.

               

              When I walked through the door several customers were commenting how ridiculous the colors were.

                Reflective

                 

                One time, I was wearing the screaming yellow shirt, the reflective vest you see above (similar pattern on the back), the knuckle lights, a red flashing light on the back, some reflective strips on my ankles (they cut my ankles, so I don't wear them there any more), and I think I also had a head lamp.

                 

                I asked my wife before I went out for a run what she thought, and she laughed. She said, "Nobody is going to hit you... accidentally".

                    -   I think I was in my early 20's before I ever realized they were saying "Deuce" in that song.

                     

                    --Why did they put a word into their song that sounds more like another word?  That is my question.

                    But I suppose it would be an interesting song for a blabbering drunk to sing on Karaoke...  .

                      You'd be surprised.  A little over a year ago I was out on a pre-dawn run...reflective construction vest, headlamp, red blinker...postal driver would have hit me if I had not jumped out of his way.

                          I have heard that drunks are attracted to blinking lights like moths.  Not that a postal worker would be drunk on the job.  Would he?
