Neat Idea:

Granny doesn’t play.

You can buy them on Amazon for $5 – HERE



Well not really LEGO, but you get the point:

A portable alternative that won’t degrade as badly as sandbags or concrete under sustained fire.   For cost effectiveness I still don’t think you can beat showing up with some bags or cardboard with wire over it (HESCO) and filling it up with the same stuff you’re walking on.   If this is safer though, doesn’t cost a mint, and they have a way to easily get it to a FOB then why not?

It’s called the 3-Dimensional Interlocking Protection System, and is made by Ballistics Research. Lots of info available in the powerpoint download (fail, I know) on their site.



AFT is awesome.  



Up until 30 seconds I thought this movie was about blogging:

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home.

Looks like plenty of operating going down in that movie.   You guys have no idea how bad I want to run on the top of a partially submerged submarine in the middle of the ocean. Shooting an enemy douchebag in the face while one of you guys catches the body to mitigate the splash is pretty high on that list too.

Release date: February 17th, 2012

All for publicity from bozos like me that run blogs, and DERPtastic store owners:

Oh well I guess it worked.  Now here’s where I make fun of Hornady…

Seriously Hornady?  You were known for your quality and dependability, and are used by pros and operators alike.  So you decide it’s a good idea to make and market some retardedly garish zombie ammo?  And then an obvious, seen it a million times commercial for that ammo?   You are not EXTREME SHOCK ammunition… have some dignity.

Are zombies even still cool?   I’m looking forward to the new season of The Walking Dead and all, but if you ask me zombies have run their course along with sparkly vampires.

-Here’s where I could link to the Hornady website.

Note: Brownells has some pathetic zombie ad crap out now too which is so bad i’m not even going to bother with it.

Hat tip: Drew, Scott, and Ben (who says his buddy is the dude in the commercial)

From Ben:

I tried to get him to follow the “keep your finger safe and off the trigger until you intend to fire” rule, but the ad’s director didn’t like it.

hahah Classic.



Seriously next level:

Best 13 minutes of time you’ll ever spend on here.  If girls were impressed by video game skill showboating, this guy would be the Asian Brad Pitt / George Cloony / Justin Beiber, all combined.   I’ve never seen such dedication to memorizing such useless game details.   He even has the handshakes in the cut scenes down.

The Game is called Ghost Squad.  At least it’s not guitar hero.

Are any of you guys this dedicated to gaming?
