Brian writes from Afghanistan, "Just watched your episode from 31st of May, and wanted to recommend SureFire earplugs. I'm in the Army and love rock concerts. These ear plugs are great for both, and they won't fall out, something I always have problems with if I'm using the cheapo foam plugs." Thanks, Brian!
