It is hard to imagine how strong structures can be made from the everyday strings of pasta we eat for dinner.

How about this for a practical accessory to protect your personal rights. Protests and political gatherings are becoming common again in Hungary and attendees might be interested if they don’t want to appear in the media. At protests and other public events however it could be problematic as law forbids to hide your face. But it definitely should be a mandatory part of the Hungarian police uniform.
