A T-34 tank that is 70 years old.

Freaking campers ruin all the games. This guy clearly didn't know his base was being captured.

Using an inaudible sound device for a stealth attack "is quite plausible from a technical point of view", Denis Bedat, a specialist in bio-electromagnetics, told AFP news agency this week.

"Ultrasonic waves, beyond the acoustic capacity of humans, can be broadcast with an amplifier, and the device does not need to be large, or used inside or outside a house."

He gave as an example the Active Denial System (ADS), an anti-riot gun used by US police forces that emits electromagnetic waves which produce a sudden unbearable burning sensation.

Ultrasonic noise and electromagnetic radiation are totally comparable!

Ummm...

 

S'true! 

 

Our homegrown 'pop-up' Jihadi's explosive efforts will always 'fizzle' for reasons that should be entirely obvious if you have any idea how our intelligence services operate (ask Argentina about Exocets).

 

It takes known and quantified Jihadis with a genuine foreign support network to achieve something like the Manchester Arena attack.....Which presumably is why we let the little bastard back into the country.  If you've not followed up the connections between the bomber and British intelligence, you should, it is extremely enlightening.

 

PS - Four Lions is a fantastic film.

I more meant the way the title was worded. But then, I should shut the fuck up since people bitch about my titles, too.

I Had Never Touched A Gun Before The Las Vegas massacre. Then I Bought One. A liberal snowflake gets to know the gun culture from the inside.


Indeed the author is a liberal snowflake. But he did all the right stuff. Went to West Coast Armory in Bellevue to do some range shooting, took a class, talked to some ex-marine instructors (I believe I'm acquaintances with one of them, I'll have to message), got a Concealed Pistol License, bought a Glock, bought the correct accessories for it, carried it.

 

And then stuck the pistol in his mouth because he has suicidal tendencies...

 

It is an interesting read from The Stranger, Seattle's more infamous Alt-weekly, although given how my old paper is circling the drain, it is probably the only.

 

Thoughts?

Though I hadn't admitted this to myself earlier, it was perhaps inevitable that the very first thing I did when I brought the gun home and was alone with it was to put it in my mouth. Unloaded at first, then loaded (which may account for my difficulty loading the magazine). I danced around this ritual for a long time, several hours in fact, but I knew I had to get up close to it. This was the step beyond the drive-by, beyond the parking, beyond the browsing. This was brinkmanship with the part of myself that insists my existence has no value, that things will never improve.

 

If you're THAT suicidal, don't buy a gun FFS. Like, I realize errybody got problems, right? But even if some of us get pretty hopeless and "suicidal" from time to time, we aren't so intent on ending ourselves that the first thing that comes to mind when we bring home the shiny new pew toy is "stick it in your mouth like you're gonna blow your brains out". Get help, dude, for real.
