I know a lot of you guys hate VICE, but this is pretty good.  I like how real the main VET TV guy (Donny) keeps it:

3:18 – “There are 20,000 users right now that pay $5 per month for access to the content.”  I keep telling people this… it doesn’t matter that YouTube bans certain content… if you have great content you can charge for it, and people will pay.  If you have poor to mediocre content, or even relatively decent content that’s packed full of “SpOnSOrEd” items or messages then people are going to maybe watch it for free but they aren’t going to pay for it.  Rest assured, I’m not going to be putting out quality content anytime soon and charging you piehitters for it.

5:48 – I thought only SEALS wrote books? haha all jokes aside the book sounds awesome.  I don’t know if I’d get a lot of the jokes since I’m not the audience, but I might have to pick up a copy.

21:27 – Holy OK this VICE girl is making this about herself now.  Annoying.  Oh man his response to her is epic “The reality is that we don’t care about the female perspective on this piece” 😂

5 minutes later, the VICE girl is still trying to get one of the VET TV girls to talk shit about Donny and what him and VET TV are doing.  After that she continues to try to put Donny on the spot and trip him up getting him to say something he’ll regret.  The play doesn’t work, and he eloquently answers her.

You can read more on the VET TV website if you’re interested in what they’re offering.

Oh and if you click though to the YouTube comments on the video… “Comments are disabled for this video.”  classic.  I’d put money on that being VICE’s doing, and not at the request of VET TV.

Thoughts?  Are any of you guys subscribed?

New drama alert:

I’m down for a good drama every now and then.  Robert Redford is timeless, so I’ll likely see this one.  It’s like they remade the movie HEAT, for old people.

Sometimes I forget how good old movies are.  I was in San Francisco this past weekend living life, and when I got back I realized I needed to watch Escape From Alcatraz (1979) again.  So good.

This device is new to me:

I don’t do press releases (that’s cringe shit left best to the thirsty blogs), but basically the gist is that the French Ministry of Defense is dropping the FAMAS and replacing it with the HK416 (93,340 units right now) and they are bundling it with a Hornady Rapid Rack device.

My initial impressions are it seems to be simple, and works as advertised.  However… you’re now training guys to use this device rather than just using the weapon as intended – one in the chamber with the safety on.  Also, I wonder if under stress how many guys are going to panic and just pull the trigger while they are getting shot at… wondering why nothing is happening while the rapid rack is in the empty chamber.  Then say they manage to chamber a round.. maybe by that point they could have switched the weapon back to safe while they were fumbling around.  Pull the trigger again and still nothing.  *shrug* what do I know guys?  I’m just thinking out loud.

If you want to pick up a rapid rack, they go for $12.48 on their website.  Such a specific number.  I’m sure there’s some psychology behind that, which I never bothered to pay attention to in school… and instead priced all my t-shirts at $19 like a rube and not some number like $19.23.

Smh this:

Yooooooo somebody come get their Canadian mans. 😂

The site is threeper-gear.ca and it is every bit as much of a cultural appropriation train wreck as you might expect.  You guys know how much I hate cultural appropriation 😂, which I happened to recently express in a VODA post.  Initially I thought the site was a joke, but it appears they actually have the products in stock and ready to sell.  The Canadian guy Ryan who sent this to me couldn’t really believe it either.  Also, it seems they are the first company in history that actually CHOSE to have a shitty hyphen in their URL.  Wait, are hyphens in URLs a sought-after Canadian thing?  I say this because at the time of writing this post threepergear.ca is very much still available. 🤔 Wild times we’re living in.

I laugh, but piehitters are becoming a problem in Canada according to the CBC in this article they published this past May.  Oh man I almost fell off my chair when I saw this:

LOL a cattle prod A.K.A. what I like to call “The Canadian Extendo”.

Thoughts?

Gat tip: Ryan… and Ryan if you secretly own this Threeper Gear company, bravo on the effort and for getting me to post it.  You finessed me with your cordial DMs.  I hope you need to make multiple trips to the bank to drop off all the loonies and toonies you’ll make from referral sales off this post to ENDO reading Canadians who were on the threep fence.

This is such a dumpster fire:

I made up the caption on the picture and post, but I didn’t fabricate the picture unfortunately.
