Buried underground for 18 years… pour some motor oil on it and you’ve got yourself a working AK-47:

Everything was going well up until 0:40 – “Which is why it’s so vital for the task force to destroy them.”  Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

It’s sure interesting how differently weapons are viewed all over the world. I suppose if they found a cache of buried weapons in most countries the knee jerk reaction would be to destroy them unless they were very valuable and could be put in a museum.

Thoughts?  Anyone have an extra AK laying around they are going to bury?  I’m not talking a wimpy “submerged in oil and in a air tight container” type bury either.. i’m talking dig a hole in the ground and throw the AK in it and then cover the hole. :P

An Incredible look at high speed low drag videography:

High speed photography / videography are definitely relevant to my interests.  I’d like to get my hands on one of these for a day just to play around with!

10,000 FPS at 480p is damn impressive.  2.9 seconds though :/ It’s really too bad the buffer is so small, but I supposed that’s a limitation considering the processing power that is needed to dump that many frames every second to memory.  Seeing the lead fragments fly off the rifling when the bullet was in flight blew my mind.

Thoughts? Any of you guys ever play around with one of these?

Episode 1 – Mission: Sharpshooter – Identify hidden target and use M21 sniper rifle to do a head shot… fastest time wins:

Shooting (or attempting to) at 40 yards…  Interesting concept though, the kids teach the combat vets how to play video games and the combat vets teach the kids how to shoot.

I think some of the kids were genuinely surprised that their L33t GaMing SkiLlz didn’t translate into them being tier 1 operators with real weapons.

I like how the gold deagle brand deagle is the “starter” pistol. haha

Episode 2: MOH Warfighter Campaign Mode:

This episode is really boring.

If you missed my post on the entire series you can check it out over at FPS Derp Battle – Medal Of Honor Warfighter and watch the trailer.

Thoughts? Are you going to watch the rest of the episodes?

Seen in North Texas parking lot:

That’s a tight pattern so it had to have been close range or else a choked barrel.  If it was a negligent discharge I hope that’s the last one that person ever has.

Looks really fresh.  I wonder if he’s going to drive around with it as a badge of honor, or try to cover it up quick?

Thoughts?

A semi-automatic popcorn delivery device:

By popcorn company Popcorn Indiana.

The Popinator instantly delivers popcorn into a person’s mouth just by saying the word “pop”.  The Popinator is able to pinpoint where in the room the spoken word originated from as demonstrated in the video, and shoot a piece of popcorn at it up to 15 feet away.

I wonder if it could shoot homemade buttered popcorn too?  Or does it have to be dry bagged popcorn?

So awesome.  My only complaint is that this appears to be vaporware.  I don’t know what the deal with companies is… did Popcorn Indiana not think this would be a hit with the public?  Have they not worked the bugs out of the design?  These are questions that should be answered before going public with it and then not having any units for sale once the promo video goes viral and everyone in the world wants one.  I won’t give a shit about this product by next week because I will have already forgot it exists, but you can bet I would have bought one right now if it were available for a decent price.

Thoughts?  Assuming this ever becomes publicly available, are you putting it on your Christmas list?

Tricking celebrities into thinking they have been kidnapped by terrorists:

An English summary of the TV show:

Holy!!!! This is like American TV show Punk’d, but on a whole other level.   Although it’s funny to watch something like this happen to someone else, I can’t imagine it would be any fun to be involved in… especially with this show where the celebrity victim actually thinks they are going to die.

The show is called Ramez Desert Fox and is hosted by Egyptian Actor/Singer Ramez Galal.

Thoughts?
