predator

I knew this wasn’t going to be “positive” since it’s a VICE video:

Tough jobs requiring tough decisions when you’re dealing with war.  I’ve seen similar pieces on drone operators, and it always surprises me that it’s almost like they initially assumed they would be exempt from PTSD since they’re not up close to the death and destruction.

I don’t like to get political on this blog (mainly because it’s not something I think a lot about), but I always find it interesting how democrats and Obama enthusiast-cheerleaders in general fully sweep the whole “King of drone strikes” title under the rug like it never happened.

I can sympathize with this guy in the video, however it’s not like he was in a prison camp being forced at gunpoint to fly drones.  Plenty of jobs available in and outside the military that don’t have all that potential for emotional baggage attached.

Thoughts?

Whoooooo look at the flick of the wrist:

Arnold-Schwarzenegger-Predator-MusicalMaking of videos > *.  Quality looking craftsmanship.  Whoa though no kidding when he says they are going to be heavy haha!

Their testing at the end is pretty funny.  The same guys also made Batman’s wolverine claws in a different episode you can check out.

I picture RoyalNonesuch doing cool stuff like that for a living sometime.

Predator only had 3 beams… Laserlyte has 9:

Pretty cool how just because of the way the beam is split, the dot pattern tightens and opens up depending on distance to target just like the spread of a shotgun.

Available over at Laserlyte.  The Green laser version is $285 (Actually cheaper on Amazon – $250) and the Red laser version will be available in 2 months for $150 and will fit pistols and long guns.

Oh yeeaaaaaahhh.

Thoughts?  How many of you guys are going to pick one of these up? Pretty decent idea for home defense I would imagine, except all that light could might ruin your night vision.

Ugh… seriously?

To make things worse, the Beamshot website states that the center of the three dots is the point of impact.

In case some of you guys forgot the preadator movie… this will refresh your memory:
