Medical-alert bracelet begs for browser cleansing

If your browser history isn't something you want uncovered, you may want a bracelet that lets people know your Internet tracks need to be expunged.

A now-deleted Redditor posted a photo of a medical-alert bracelet that the anonymous contributor considered "sensible." Rather than listing allergies or medical conditions, it just conveys this crucial message should the wearer become incapacitated: "Delete my browser history."

The bracelet did manage to launch a Reddit discussion on whether EMTs would find it funny. The opinion was split, but a real paramedic came down on the side of definitely funny.

Redditors were quick to provide other bracelet-engraving alternatives. There was a suggestion to engage "microwave my hard drive." Another proposal was "collect the dragon balls." I'm sensing a thriving Etsy operation in the making here.

The bracelet made me giggle, but I propose that it would be a lot easier to just use the private browsing or incognito mode of your favorite Web browser and save the money on the custom engraving job.
