    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.

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Ugh!  Textbook example of 'inefficiency.'  :vomit

    In Japanese mythology, demons only travel in straight lines...

    Besides, curves are...fun. Much more pleasant to the eye than brutalism.

    Stalinist architecture can be 'fun' and it is not curvy :neener .

    Fine, if you want curves and aesthetics, there is always classic European architecture to fall back on.

    Every time they tell me there are no real journalists anymore, I think of Hunter S Thompson. They don't make them like they used to  :rotfl .

    Well, in his case that's not entirely a bad thing.   :facepalm   I honestly don't think the term "journalist" was seriously applied to Mr. Thompson for the last twenty years or so prior to his passing.  Alcoholic, drug addled, lunatic - perhaps.  Journalist was a bit of a stretch though.
