NYpost journalist Susannah Cahalan has some super secret 3rd party insider info.

Read the story at the NYpost – HERE

Mike M. alerted me to this story, and at first I didn’t see what the big deal was until he pointed out a number of inconsistencies:

Green lasers – Didn’t they originally have nightvision?  That would have lit it up making it useless.

Flashlights – Same idea as green lasers unless there was some IR filter on them I suppose.

US Navy m855 5.56 Predator ammunition – Mike says the m855 is the “penetrator” not predator.

SEALs missing their targets – The new account of the story makes them seem somewhat incompetent.  Also, is it standard practice to keep your rifle on SEMI when on a kill mission?  I just assumed you want to put maximum lead in the bastard as quickly as possible.

This looks like two possible things to me.  1) Susannah Cahalan is trying to make a name for her self by being the first to get this “REAL” story out there.   2) Former SEAL Team Six commander Chuck Pfarrer is trying to push his new book.    Wouldn’t all that information on the raid still be classified?  I highly doubt the U.S. government would be on board to divulge top secret information in order for a former employee to spice up his new book.

Finally!  A practical pistol disarming drill on YouTube:

The ante should be upped with either simunition, paintball, or airsoft… preferably one that hurts the most.  That way they would learn quickly what a dumbass stunt this type of thing is.  From the YouTube description, it is apparently called called “Kapap”.

This looks like something from the movie Equillibrium where that guy “disarming” would attack one of them in the circle, and they would all end up shooting each other.

Anyone practice this type of thing? Better yet, have you used it successfully on an attacker?

A conceptual design project called Raygun52 by Google Designer Alex Griendling:

Pictured above are a couple of the latest ones.  The site is definitely worth taking a look at if you’re into design and want to see some interesting/quirky ideas.

Head over to Raygun52 to see them all.

The most lifelike dead animals anywhere. You better recognize:

I love it.. the deadpan delivery, the cornyness, poor acting… this has it all!

Ojai Valley Taxidermy is the place.

7 million views, wow!  Talk about a good return / exposure for his money.   The commercial was made by YouTubers Rhett & Link, they have quite a few other funny videos you might want to check out.

In theaters March 16th:

Hahha man that looks awesome.  Ron Swanson is even in it!

I never have seen the TV series with Johnny Deep.  By the look of the comments i’ve seen around, this remake doesn’t really parallel the old one though.

Is the original worth watching?  I watched a couple of clips, and it looks very “80s” haha
