This guy is hilarious  :rotfl.

Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I never knew that Instructor Zero was also very talented in culinary arts. I think this belongs here because it kind of drives home two halves of what life is about. Having the ability and tools to defend those we love in life, while also having skills and hobbies outside of that to make it more enjoyable during the time we have with them.

    That whole warrior, poet, gentleman, and scholar mindset my friends, because no body makes it out of this life alive.

    Random thought from driving home yesterday -

    I ended up behind a car that had the license plate QAK9020.

    Immediately thought it'd be the greatest video game/tv show mashup ever - Quake:90210... this needs to happen, folks.

    When Ben Shapiro was little he was filmed playing the violin. Someone mashed up him playing a tiny violin with all the videos of crying Hillary Clinton supporters.

    Excellent.  Most entertaining.   :thumbup1   Young Mr. Shapiro was/is quite a talented violinist.  I particularly remember that one special snowflake running around in traffic screaming "Kill Me!  Kill Me!" .    :facepalm    When I first saw that clip I thought it personified the generally useless nature of most left wingers in that they can't ( or won't ) even take care of offing themselves.  Bad enough somebody else has to clean up the mess but at least have the decency to do the deed yourself.   :bash   The next day on the way to work I thought about it again and came to the conclusion if I had been on the scene and been confronted by that dickweed motherfluffer I would have asked him how much money he had on him because if he expects me to run over his worthless a&& he's got an insurance deductible to cover before we proceed.  :coffee

    It doesn't seem to like gyfcat images in the image tag.

    For those who haven't clicked yet it is high speed footage of an airburst nuclear device's shockwave hitting the ground.

    Recently declassified.

    The footage of the nuclear tests was old enough that they had to digitize it to preserve it, and also old enough to be declassified. Double win.

    Umm .  .  .  at 3:32 they're listing what appears to be a blown V-8 at 8000 hp.   :scrutiny  The only way it could produce that much power is if it actually blew up - as in detonated.    800 hp - maybe, but 8000 is just wrong.   :coffee

    I just loved the sound...

    But then again I listen in my home office with a surround sound system connected to the computer.

    I don't waste Mollys on other players, those are for the tank and the tank only. >:D

    Top Fuel dragster engines are calculated to be between 8,500 and 10,000 hp.  The engines are too powerful for a dyno to test.  These are basically Chrysler 426 V8's, with significant evolution.

    Well, I'm no expert but I'm not entirely certain that was a top fuel engine.   :hmm    Hard to tell from the lighting but it didn't look like a nitro burn to me.   :shrug    I thought the reason they had to estimate the power of those engines was because they wouldn't actually hold together under full power for a ten + second dyno run .

    Yeah, I should have phrased that "They don't make dyno's capable of taking a power measurement on these engines".  I think you are correct that it is a timing issue.
