Each charcoal drawing shows the artist, Gil Vicente of Recife, Brazil, holding a weapon moments before assassinating a world leader. The series, called Inimigos (Enemies), is meant to highlight alleged crimes for which the leaders have been directly or indirectly responsible by imagining that they are being made to pay the price.

Outside the art world i’d expect this type of thing to be taken as a real threat. Can you imagine if some kid sketched the exact same thing in a notebook at school?  All hell would break loose.   According to the article, the artist wants $260,000 for all 9 of his sketches… which in the U.S. would probably be close to the bail you would have to pay to get your kid out of jail temporarily for doing the same thing.

When magnets are applied to a specific part of the brain (the posterior parietal cortex region, which is involved with planning physical movements), researchers at the University of California Berkeley found that their 33 right-handed volunteers started favoring their left hands for smaller tasks instead.

As the owner a generation 3 G26, I can say that the changes they made for the Gen4 seem pretty much useless and unwarranted. Judging by the picture, the recoil spring / guide rod is the same as the one in my gen3.  The only noticible differences are the removable backstraps, the rough textured frame (RTF), and the enlarged magazine release.

I definitely wont be upgrading, but I see no reason you wouldn’t want the gen4 (if you are in the market for a subcompact Glock) if it is being offered at the same price as the gen3 models.

I had my fingers crossed that the changes would be drastic on the subcompact models. I guess you don’t mess with “Perfection” though right? heh :P

Singer Marc Anthony, Robert De Niro, shock jock Howard Stern and supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis. Billionaire Donald Trump and his son, Donald Jr.; celebrity lawyer David Breitbart, and artificial-heart inventor Robert Jarvik can also carry steel, police records reveal. Mets third-baseman David Wright has a permit to keep a gun in his city penthouse. Martha Stewart’s daughter, radio host Alexis Stewart, also has a permit.

The best part of the story was “It’s unclear why (Marc) Anthony wanted the permit” …. Let me hazard a guess, maybe because he wants to carry a gun? :P

Nice to hear Donald and his boy are taking advantage of their status and being decent Americans. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Trump carried around some sort of gaudy .50 Desert Eagle (DEAGLE) with diamonds all over it. His taste is pretty lavish judging by his Penhouse condo they show on each season of ‘The Apprentice’.
