Despite the fact I absolutely despise “clickbait” lists… here’s one in video form:

For those of you who are just spectators in this whole internet thing, you probably noticed that lists have been all the rage for a while now.  Well, that’s because apparently people love bullshit lists and they click on them so that’s why every lameass blogger under the sun is making them up all of the sudden.

oprah-derp-face3:17 – Carbon nanotubes do sound quite awesome.

If anything, this video reminded me I should see some of the movies I haven’t yet (such as John Wick), and possibly re-watch some old ones I haven’t seen in a while.

They used some of our boy Richard Ryan‘s footage in the vid!

The longest and most painful one I’ve seen yet:

From the Turkish movie Kareteci Kız released in 1973, which the man in the video one an Academy Award for “Best Actor In An International Film”.

My guess is that lady will probably switch to a .45 auto with hollows after that disaster.  Maybe even a Deagle so she can vaporize her foes.

So much more effective than scaring someone the old fashioned way by sneaking up on them and yelling something.

Two soldiers, joined by a third man, were drinking alcohol and watching football at the time of the Sunday night incident, authorities said.

“The victim had the hiccups. The suspect (Pfc. Patrick Edward Myers, 27) pulled out a gun to scare him in order to stop the hiccups” and shot the victim (Pfc. Isaac Lawrence Young, 22) in the face killing him.

Full story – CNN

Tragic.  Another reminder not to hang around stupid people, even if they are a friend of a friend.

I bet Patrick will be affectionately known as “Hiccups” in prison.

An interesting talk that is definitely worth watching:

Every time I see one of these types of scientific videos where they talk about wounds, I realize how bad I never want to be shot.

The rifle v.s. handgun pictures he shows are especially frightening.

LOL at the zombie target joke at around 13:12.

Summary:

  • Handguns are not as deadly as most people think.  6 out of 7 people survive their injuries
  • It’s impossible to assess injury severity at scene properly
  • There are often no exit wounds
  • Handguns have a very low penetration depth
  • Be concerned about airways
  • The most likely death is due to hemorrhage
  • Quick transport to OR is key

Moral of the story is that if you’re going to get shot you better hope it’s with a handgun.  On the flip side of that Clint Smith’s saying  “The only purpose for a pistol is to fight your way back to the rifle you should have never laid down.” definitely holds true, because you’re going to want a rifle (if you have the option) to stop the threat.

Not sure what this proves, besides that this guy is an idiot:

Yea we get it.. the trauma plates are rated for 7.62mm.  They were developed and tested safely by engineers and scientists in a lab, so no one would have to attempt retarded crap like this in their parents living room.  I hope his mom sees this and grounds him.

I saw the cat to his right, and I was bracing for a Boondock Saints type incident.
