    Get Away, Damnit. (The Camping Thread)

    Really enjoying where I live. Haven't hit up this area in a while. Didn't disappoint. Surprisingly, I didn't see anyone else out on bikes.

    Get Away, Damnit. (The Camping Thread)

    This is a thread about camping. Camping is the act of purposely leaving the house and wifi connection in order to sleep on the ground, sometimes in the cold. You may choose to consume less than appetizing food and be at the mercy of nature during this time. This thread can be used for discussion of items one would take during such a time. I did such an event with my girlfriend this weekend. I drove up some rather ungroomed roads to Crystal Mountain, west of Fort Collins. Here is the proof.
  3. FAL's are great. I loved mine. STG58 build with an 18" barrel and short flash hider. Thing was sweet as hell to shoot.

    Surgical Hardware (Stuff We Make)

    My company's institute has a TON of really cool videos on surgical methods and hardware used. @Collimatrix @Sturgeon @Ulric This shows a product we make at our facility.

    Get Away, Damnit. (The Camping Thread)

    https://www.pinkbike.com/news/foodless-odyssey-riding-across-haidai-gwaii-sustained-solely-by-nature.html @Donward this is kind of interesting. And hilarious. A few riders try going 200km in a week but don't bring any food. They rely completely on stuff they can kill/catch/gather on the way. Watching them stumble around the woods with compound bows was the best part. "We couldn't get close to the deer" Yeah no fucking shit you couldn't. Wild deer aren't city deer. You can't just walk up on one no problem.

    The terrible movies and reviews thread

    "We have to stop London before it destroys us!" Hear that, @Sgt.Squarehead? HEAR THAT? Also, I unapologetic ally love this trailer and think this movie will be dumb as all hell and I still want to watch it.

    Been testing out some bags. Looking to do an actual over-night trip one of these weekends.

    Non-exploding infantry hardware thread.

    I think you could build it that light. Whether they did or not is a different story. If this is just a prototype maybe more weight is ok for now. One step towards exosuits!

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    I don't trust those stats as much. College campuses will oftentimes find a drugged out female dead in the dorms and call it a suicide, when in reality it was a date-rape gone wrong.

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    This is incorrect. Male suicide on average (in modern "western" culture) is about seven times more common than female suicide. Men will kill themselves however they want, and usually without much regards for the cleanup. Women care about who finds them, which is usually why they use overdosing instead of bullets to the head or purposeful car crashes. One possible idea is that women worry more about the people they care for when they would be gone, which would keep a suicidially depressed woman from killing themselves. I'm not sure if I'm completely on board with the hypothesis, but I can see its merit.
  21. Just saw a bumper sticker. It said, "my dog is a democrat." Damn, who won't the Dems register to vote? First illegals, then dead people, now pets?
