World's scariest employee orientation/training program


If you're a new employee of Miguel Caballero, a Bogotá, Columbia manufacturer of stylish security apparel, one of your duties is testing out the company's wares — facing live fire from such weapons as nine-millimeter Berettas and .44 Magnums.


Practically every garment made by the $3.5 million-a-year (with a... bullet) company, from tropical shirts to leather jackets, is guaranteed to withstand ammunition from these weapons or their equivalents.

The company even makes knife-proof undershorts, popular with prison wardens.


The owner says that his own country's violent reputation vouches quite nicely for the effectiveness of his line.
