Scared of nano-pants? Hey, you may be onto something
Kevin Maney: A handful of young men and women filed into an Eddie Bauer store and took off their clothes to protest the selling of khaki pants treated with nanotechnology.
So far, there seems to be no reason to think anyone could be hurt by nano-pants, but a lot of people are terribly worried about nanotechnology. They've heard stories that it could self-replicate until it covers the Earth like a virulent kudzu, or that nanotech particles might damage brain cells or cause cancer. They're assuming the worst now, ahead of any proof of danger.
