What is so interesting is how they did the vocals. Who can sing that song like Maynard? Probably no one. So, fluff that noise, let's have it sung by a little girl. And she nails it.

I see YouTube calls that one a "hot violinist". I beg to disagree - this one is smokin' hot and can fiddle anyone into the ground.

I think "Hot Violinist" is much prettier.  The Celtic Woman is cute... but not as pretty.  Of course, HV has since cut her hair short and is evidently avoiding being "Hot" anymore.

So, over on FB, Larry and Tamara Keel were having fun with a Trilby wearing hipster being trollishly ironic (and ironically trollish) and Nightcrawler was dragged in against his will:

https://www.facebook.com/tamara.keel/posts/10152104762969825?comment_id=30034724&offset=0&total_comments=137&notif_t=feed_comment_reply (https://www.facebook.com/tamara.keel/posts/10152104762969825?comment_id=30034724&offset=0&total_comments=137&notif_t=feed_comment_reply)

(Not going to  post the whole thread, just NC's responses, because they need to be immortalized)

NC: How the f**k did *I* get dragged into this? I'm over here, minding my own business, at the gym, and I have to spend ten minutes reading through one of the more bizarre Facebook threads I've seen in a while. And this, mind you, is coming from the guy who posted dozens of outrageous "Bear Facts", and when one commenter took issue with one of said "facts" (he didn't believe 51,000+ Americans die in bear attacks each year), I accused him of "being in league with the bears".

That's about how seriously I take MY internet, and you want MY input on this?

Ooookay....

-I carry a five-shot snubby as often as anything else, with a speedloader and a speed strip for reloads, for a total of fifteen rounds.

-I spent six months in the heartland of the Taliban in Afghanistan and never needed my M9. I laugh at people who tell me I'm going to get killed in Utah because I'm only carrying a revolver.

-Right now, I'm TDY and live on base, so I don't carry at all. The same went for the six months I spent in Germany and the year I lived in Qatar. Sometimes you just gotta adapt to circumstances beyond your control.

-I don't presently actually *own* a centerfire semiauto handgun, so this "slide stop" business...yeah, no, I ain't really got a dog in that fight.


Furthermore, to be fair, there are all kinds of gun culture people I find humor in:

-People who tell me I'm I'm going to die because I've only got a revolver.
-People who tell me a large-framed handgun is impossible to conceal.
-The guy who told me having a plastic Magpul AFG on his rifle made him shoot better, (pi*sed off because I called it a gimmick) and challenged me to list my "split times" in order to prove it.
-I responded by warning him that my zombie dad will rise from the grave and beat up his dad.
-People who act like using the slide release for releasing the slide is some kind of affront to nature.
-The modern day samurai "MINDSET" people who refuse to call guns weapons "they're TOOLS" (as are the people who say that) and have to sit facing the door. There's a scene in one of Larry's books based on the time we almost got into a fight with some of these guys at the Rio buffet in Las Vegas.
-Multicam and Magpul fanboys, and this is coming from a guy with a magpul stock on his rifle and who wore multicam in combat.
-Tactical Timmies in general. They often display some or all of these traits. They're silly people who take themselves very seriously. They're SERIOUS SHOOTERS who shoot seriously, and run their guns HARD (because the gun knows you're at a training class, not just blasting into the dirt out in the desert somewhere).

Don't get me fu**ing started on "operators". The EOD career field has officially adopted the phrase "operator". Because being an EOD tech wasn't cool enough, we have to be "operators" too. It doesn't even make sense. You conduct an operation, you don't operate it. If anything, we should be EOD Conductors. I actually removed that phrase (and a bunch of other buzzwords and jargon) from a couple of draft documents up at HQ. (I also get to say things like no, Chief, that's not actually a word.) Everybody wants to be an operator because it's a handy buzzword that lets bureaucrats know we don't just sit on base anymore and gets us funding and recognition. That's the excuse, anyway. I still say what they're doing to the Queen's English is a goddamned crime.

Now, it's after 11 and I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty wasted right now. If I read this mess right...okay, first of all, I've counseled people who, on the internet, were "warning me" that I'm going to die because I only have, say, 15 rounds on me, that if they don't spend as much time worrying about their cardiovascular health as they do their daily round count, then their priorities are out of whack, because heart diseases are the number one killer of Americans.

And let's be honest. A goodly portion of the gun culture could use more cardio. They make XXXL-sized tactical pants for a reason.

That said...I don't think Larry suggested that he gets in running gun battles all the time. I think some of his fanboyish fans may think so, but really, the life of an accountant-turned-novelist is pretty dull most of of the time. He sits at a desk, slurps Vanilla Coke and bangs on a keyboard all day. His gun collection isn't all that impressive because between being Mormon and being an accountant he's a complete tightwad, what with his "fiscal responsibility" nonsense (it's practically un-American). I'm pretty sure the only tactical gear he owns is stuff he got from the gun store back in the day.

Me, I have a pile of gear I never use, some of which I bought with my own money, because I thought it was cool.

Holy sh*t this got long. Larry why the fu*k did you tag me in this? You KNOW what happens! ALL of that said, I think the one guy assumed Larry was one of the aforementioned Tactical Timmies when he said that you might have to shoot a gun to slidelock. That wasn't really fair. The only semiauto I own is a .22, and if the slidelock didn't work for whatever reason I'd be pi*sed. So, the one dude kind of jumped the gun (see what I did there? Huh? It was a pun.) a little bit. Larry got annoyed, because Larry has to deal with idiots telling him he's dumb and wrong all day (but it's his own fault for reading the comments, and it's good for him, keeps him grounded from the adoring fanboys. Otherwise he'll end up like Wil Wheaton, and FU*K WIL WHEATON I guess he just doesn't have TIME for two 'L's in his name.)

And then one guy got mad back, because I guess admitting you misunderstood the context on Facebook is REALLY HARD or something, and it descended into a slapfight that was painfully awkward but really funny to read.

So...I know this is the internet and all, but that doesn't mean you have to jump to a conclusion and bring out the unnecessary sarcasm. If you ARE going to do that, you should at least know what the fluff you're talking about. Which SOME PEOPLE in this here facebook discussion seem to be having trouble with.

Looking your way, other guy. Hashtag I"M JUST SAYIN.

And whoever brought it up, my boots aren't desert combat boots, they're Merrel hiking boot, I was issued them for Afghanistan, and they're really comfy. Also, I'll wear whatever the fluff I want you stupid hipsters. If I want to gel my hair up, bust out the Affliction polo, pop the collar, and go tanning like Navy EOD, I'll damned well do it and you can suck it. When you people volunteer to go finger-fluff IEDs in the Taliban's back yard and damn near get killed in the process, then I'll value your opinion.

I'm not even sure who I'm yelling at at this point. All I know is I'm a liightweight and need tog o to bed.

I think it was more the fact that the bullet was going through it without really slowing down much.   Paradoxically, you might have seen more impressive destruction from a much less powerful gun.

Hot Crazy Matrix - A Man's Guide to Women (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKWmFWRVLlU#ws)

The thing that makes the matrix (a graph, really) so funny is that it is true, even the stuff that is implied by the graph but they do not explicitly say. For example, a woman who is a 9 or a 10 can exhibit a level of crazy that a guy will readily accept, because she is smoking hot. On the other hand, that same behavior exhibited by a 5 or a 6 will get her dumped in a heartbeat. Likewise, if a woman is having relationship problems, she can resolve them by either ratcheting down her level of crazy or increasing her level of hot.

And, it's not like this is saying anything insulting about women, really. It says a lot more about how guys tend to think. We really are pretty simple, stupid creatures. ;)

it's just projection, their winkie is so small that they can't imagine being man enough to handle a firearm. so they turn it around and say that us real American men with our .45's, .30-06's, and scary black guns are less of men for having them.

Vice city came afterwards. I liked the radio stations on Vice city better. GTA 5 is like a merger between the two titles in a way.

I became a fan when vice city first came out. I was 12 and in the 7th grade I believe. I'm surprised I didn't become a criminal, Fox news says kids who play those games become murderous little hellions  :neener.

But yeah, simpler times..... I still remember coming home after class and grabbing a Pepsi and a can of Vienna sausages as an after school snack before I would commence to hooker killing in vice city. In those days Toonami was still on cartoon network in the afternoon.

Quote
X-Wing and its follow-up, TIE Fighter, are two of the best Star Wars games ever made. In a just dimension, the space sims would've spawned numerous worthy follow-ups. Alas, our dimension is not particularly just, but it did get a little better today with news that both games are coming to GOG.
The happy revelation comes to us by way of the GOG forums, where a pair of threads revealed that the Special Editions of both games will come to the service on October 28. It's not an official announcement, but the messages were posted by the official GOG account, and that's good enough for me. Each game will sell for $10.

I just wish they were getting a graphics upgrade, too...

Well,  they do include the 1998 editions.  The graphics on that version are quite a bit better.   I've got that version of TIE Fighter and the older collectors version of X-wing without the graphics upgrade.   Haven't dusted them off in years since I didn't want to hassle with getting them running through DosBox.  Glad they are finally being re-released.

I like the new version.   However, I do wish the doctor would pick up a gun more often. He is more than willing to let billions  of other people carry guns for him and die as cannon fodder,  but he rarely does it himself.  He needs to spend less time marveling at his own cleverness and more time blowing up Daleks and Cybermen with anti-tank weapons.

Another thing I don't like is that the show tends to attract a large share of the SJW  section of the geek community for some reason.    Those people and I are fundamentally incompatible and they irritate me to no end.

Quote
Excerpt:
This is a French cuirass, a breastplate worn as body armour by French cavalry. The hole is from a British cannonball that smashed through the unlucky soldier’s chest. The Waterloo campaign was the first occasion that British troops found themselves face to face with Napoleon’s heavy cavalry, whose armoured cuirasses and metal helmets made them a daunting foe.

Yet as the British would discover, even these armoured troopers were by no means invincible as this breastplate brings home with shocking force.

The bulk of Napoleon’s heavy cavalry was made up of the twelve regiments of Cuirassiers, but the elite of the arm, in their own eyes at least, were the men of the two regiments of Carabiniers. With a lineage running back to 1679, the Carabiniers had only been given cuirasses in 1809. Unlike the cuirassiers, their armour was gilded with brass rather than being of polished iron, and their old blue uniforms were changed for white. Both regiments served with distinction throughout the Napoleonic Wars, and in 1815 were brigaded together under Général de Brigade Blanchard as part of Général de Division Kellermann’s III Corps de Cavalerie.

A few years ago we checked out a motion-controlled robot. LEGO designer Daniele Benedettelli also came up with a motion control setup for his Cyclops robot, but instead of using a motion sensor he made a exoskeleton made of LEGO that tracks his movement and relays it to the robot. - See more at: http://technabob.com/blog/2015/07/30/lego-robot-exosuit-control/#sthash.pZg38vFE.dpuf

I managed to get a ship to Duna (Mars-analog), land, mine resources there to refuel, and return to Kerbin.

Right now I'm working on capturing a class-D asteroid and putting it into a useful prograde equatorial orbit. It's not as easy as it sounds.

There are no LaGrange points in KSP. It uses simple newtonian physics for orbital movement NOT N-body physics calculation.



A class-D asteroid is very heavy. Did you make a dockable/refuelable asteroid grabber Jesse? The only way I could figure out how to move one very effectively was 6 nuke motors, a decent tank size and make the grabber probe able to be refueled with docking node. It still took a few refuel trips and some 'unplanned' orbits.

Not sure if we have any breaking bad fans here, but I found this tribute to Mike. I love Mike Ehrmantraut, he is quite possibly one of my favourite fictional characters on television. Police officer turned private investigator, who then pragmatically uses his skills to run security for a meth ring leader and vet the organisations future employees to make sure they are trustable. He does this all in order to provide for his granddaughter and uses the meth money to provide her with an outstanding college fund.

If you haven't watched it yet, I highly recommend this show.

Unfortunately KSP does simple conics instead of n-body gravity simulations, so there aren't any Lagrange points.

My Asteroid turned out to be very resource rich - 97% - so I was able to drill it and process it into fuel without any other refueling. Barely put a dent in its mass.

And with a license plate ending in 586, you just know I'd have the driver packing an L-Frame Smith and Wesson, likely just as "rat rodded" as the car.

"It's like a hybrid."
"It's my Prius." 

A few SFW cuss words.

THIS ONE -

Young Mr. Goodwin is now 20-something, and has a white Bentley to replace his now sold RX-7, with exhaust pipes going up the frame around the windshield, over the roof, and down parallel to the trunk.  This young gentlemen seriously needs to end up wounded in an ISIS-controlled cave system in Afghanistan with a collection of vehicle and weapon parts so he can fulfill his destiny as the real-world Tony Stark. 

*wipes a tear.*  Corbin Goodwin, God bless you.

http://Coming from Daniel Corey (creator of “Moriarty”) and artist Mark Dos Santos is a noir-style detective story that takes place on Mars. The premise sounds very Phillip K. Dick-esque, as it follows Cal Talmage, a hard boiled investigator, who is hired to find the daughter of Mars’ ambassador. “Red City” #1 is slated for a June 2014 release.

Half-Life 2, twelve years later, remains one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played.  I've given up on there being a Half-Life 3 ever, but even still.  Hell, even the graphics still look decent.

I've recently played through a large chunk of Half-Life 1... while the graphics are pointy and painful the story is still very solid, especially when you compare it to what was out at the time. Fallout 2... my brother gets motion sick playing games. Truly physically ill if he plays for too long. His yearly play through of HL2 is testament to how great that game is.

Has he tried increasing the FOV?  The default one on half life 2 gave me nausea too, especially with a widescreen monitor.  Once I bumped up the FOV, the nausea went away.

Back when I played video games, I had/have over twenty something days of straight game play in RDR multiplayer alone. Yes, about a month. Straight. It may be a while before I pick up a controller again, but if you ever see Mescalero Mike carrying a gold plated LeMat revolver and riding a zebra donkey, beware. That game is my absolute favourite, it makes my Texan heart sing and brings alive my childhood Sunday afternoon fantasies of Gunsmoke and Bonanza......... Of course it unleashes them with a grand theft auto twist  :-[. I want the good guys to win, but wearing a black hat has always been more my style  :cool.

Borderlands 2 remains my main distraction.


I love borderlands! I wanted to play the pe-sequel so bad, but never got to. How was it?

It is a fairly common problem.  It has gotten worse in recent years with the proliferation of console games.  The narrow FOV is fine on a TV that is 6 feet away, but it will cause nausea in a signicant percentage of the population when using a computer monitor at close range.  The fact that developers are being lazy and doing half assed console ports instead of adding configurable options for the pc makes it worse.

If you like that, try World of Warships. An Iowa class Battleship is playable in game. Though I'm not having much luck meshing my playstyle with the Battleships. i'm more of a destroyer or Cruiser guy myself. Love that speed.

‘Global Warming’ Expedition Stopped In Tracks By Arctic Sea Ice


A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further travels by ice.

The Polar Ocean Challenge is taking a two month journey that will see them go from Bristol, Alaska, to Norway, then to Russia through the North East passage, back to Alaska through the North West passage, to Greenland and then ultimately back to Bristol. Their objective, as laid out by their website, was to demonstrate “that the Arctic sea ice coverage shrinks back so far now in the summer months that sea that was permanently locked up now can allow passage through.”

There has been one small hiccup thus-far though: they are currently stuck in Murmansk, Russia because there is too much ice blocking the North East passage the team said didn’t exist in summer months, according to Real Climate Science.

Real Climate Science also provides a graph showing that current Arctic temperatures — despite alarmist claims of the Arctic being hotter than ever — is actually below normal.

The Polar Ocean Challenge team is not the first global warming expedition to be faced with icy troubles. In 2013, an Antarctic research vessel named Akademik Shokalskiy became trapped in the ice, the problem was so severe that they actually had to rescue the 52 crew members.

In 2015 a Canadian ice breaking ship, the CCGS Amundsen, was forced to reroute and help a number of supply ships that had become trapped by ice.

The icy blockade comes just over a month after an Oxford climate scientist, Peter Wadhams, said the Arctic would be ‘completely ice-free’ by September of this year. While it obviously isn’t September yet, he did reference the fact that there would be very little ice to contend with this summer.

“Even if the ice doesn’t completely disappear, it is very likely that this will be a record low year,” Wadhams told The Independent in June.

Wahdams says he expects less than one million square kilometers by summers end, but the current amount of Arctic sea ice is 10.6 million square kilometers, according to data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). The NSIDC puts the rate of ice loss for June at just about 60,ooo square kilometers a day. If that number were to hold, it would take approximately 160 days for the Arctic to dip down to the predicted one million square kilometers.

Wahdams says he expects less than one million square kilometers by summers end, but the current amount of Arctic sea ice is 10.6 million square kilometers, according to data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). The NSIDC puts the rate of ice loss for June at just about 60,ooo square kilometers a day. If that number were to hold, it would take approximately 160 days for the Arctic to dip down to the predicted one million square kilometers.

Move it to weirdness, I read no further than "Bristol, AK". There's not a town up here with that name.  There is Bristol Bay, which is a large body of water, and a region, but it is about the size of Georgia...The bay not the part of the state.

So, there's this guy who does Larry's fisking of things, except in video format. I thought it was really good!

At about 2 minutes, he does attempt to roast Mormonism, but get past that one little bit and the rest of the video was very good. I may have to check out his other videos.

Not bad.  Not quite up there with the best yet but the faceless man in the corner is a nice touch and he can at least string his thoughts together in coherent sentences.  For the record, what is known today as "fisking" has been practiced for centuries - at least since the time of Johannes Gutenberg.  It used to be known simply as wit.  ( not to be confused with low country wheat beer   :facepalm ) 

As far as the feminist twit in the video, I have one question regarding her entire clueless performance.   Why are you wearing make-up?   :hmm

As far as the feminist twit in the video, I have one question regarding her entire clueless performance.   Why are you wearing make-up?   :hmm

I believe the 3rd Gen Fem, SJW, and Buzz Feed ilk would say that it's because it makes them feel confident, that they do it for themselves  :facepalm- in no way should anything a woman do ever be for the approval of the opposite sex. Hell, the only reason I take breaks from studying to shave or get haircuts is so that I don't look like a homeless person (although shaving what little bit I get makes me look like a child :banghead). My question is that why does society oscillate between "never strive for approval of anyone! That's bad!" and "never break the approved rules that political correctness has laid out for you- lest you be judged and ostracised for the rest of your days!"?

In reply to the young woman, I think she is beautiful, and I don't think that getting compliments from the opposite sex is such a bad thing. Even though I don't purposefully seek them, I like it when people compliment me. Besides, physical looks aren't really the important stuff anyways. A nice butt is interesting, but a value system mixed with a beautiful brain is positively captivating  :cool. Those are the dangerous one's you have to look out for  ;).

I have seen grader's from the '60's that used the same steering system.  One of my favorite memories is at the California State Fair in the late '80's with my grandparents looking at all the old tractors.  It was really fun watching the owner use his foot to kick over a early gas tractor using the approximately 5' flywheel.

I've witnessed it before, professors are not used to having their opinions or authority challenged. It's sometimes fun to watch their mental wiring spark and combust the second someone is brash enough to challenge this status quo. Their OODA Loop completely halts  :cool.

I saw the after effect of those "bollards" in action at FLETC-Glynco back in 2007. An instructor's angry wife tried to go around a line of traffic and the gate guards rightly hit the big red button. The bollards are under high air pressure and blast up out of the ground in 1/10 of a second to provide a solid line of denial spaced approx. 2' apart. One of the posts was under the driver's side of her van as she drove over it. When we drove up, the van was still on its side and she was on an ambulance gurney. It's one of the major federal LEO training centers in the US and they take security seriously.

cars stop very fast when you shoot them with a belt fed machine gun. fortunately she didn't get hit.

no one blew through a checkpoint again either.

not sure if this is trollin'.................or tongue firmly in cheek:

http://www.americanassociationofpatriots.com/ (http://www.americanassociationofpatriots.com/)

A small excerpt:


Do I need to talk to my cat about gun safety?

The first question many of you will be asking is, “Do I really need to teach my cat about gun safety?” The answer is an unequivocal “Yes!!!” The Constitution of the United States of America guarantees us the right to own and operate firearms, and that is a right we must exercise in order to keep our country healthy, lest our democracy atrophy. It is the duty of all American citizens—as well as their cats—to be able to use and maintain a firearm. Citizens who cannot handle a gun safely are as irresponsible and useless as citizens who do not own a gun at all. Americans and their homes are under attack. It is impurrative that, in order to ensure the future security of our country, every man, woman, child, and cat be able to defend our nation against the enemies of democracy.



Are there any types of guns that are inappropriate for my cat to use?

While forbidding the use of any gun would be a violation of your cat’s Second Amendment rights, there are some types of firearms that might be better suited for cats than others. While virtually any cat will be able to handle a lightweight 9mm with ease, few cats excepting perhaps a Maine coon or Norwegian forest cat will have the size and strength necessary to fire a Desert Eagle or Barrett 82A1 safely, at least without extensive training. But if there is one hard-and-fast rule on this topic, it’s this: under no circumstances should you provide your cat with a gun equipped with a laser scope, as your cat is likely to be more interested in the dot it makes than the deer, burglar, or communist in their sights.

Gonna have to look that up...

Speaking of which, I found an interesting series on NetFlix: Cyborg 009...

This is based on a some very, *very* old manga, started back in the '60s.

Pros:

     They didn't do it as a reboot - they treated the original manga as backstory, and extended and incorporated some of the old plot devices into the new series.

     Cool character designs.

Cons:

     CGI animation wasn't particularly polished. The rendering *quality* was acceptable, but the character movements (particularly when speaking) weren't... natural. Facial animation and expressions were pretty bad, too.

     Voice acting was a little... flat, too.

If you can get past those issues, it looked like it'd be something worth watching... I found it distracting.  :shrug

Speaking of which, I found an interesting series on NetFlix: Cyborg 009...

I've seen that one on there, haven't watched it yet.  It had low ratings, so I was hesitant to try it.

I just finished Season 2 of Ajin: Demi Human.   I found that one to be excellent.   It is set in the present day where a small number of people suddenly become immortal.  They can be injured just like a regular person, but within a few seconds of death they immediately "reset" and heal from whatever injuries killed them.   They are referred to Ajins in Japan.  Shortly after this happens, governments and corporations quickly round them up and start using them as guinea pigs to test weapons, medical procedures, and pharmaceuticals.    Basically just killing them over and over as lab specimens.

The main character is a high school student named Kei.   Fortunately, he isn't the typical annoying 15 year old anime protagonist.   He's an odd kid that seems like he has Aspergers with a fairly high degree of sociopathy mixed in. He really doesn't have much ambition other than to live a nice quiet life under the radar.   Then one day he is run over by a truck after school and revives in full view of dozens of witnesses.  He initially goes on the run with the aid of his only friend,  but is eventually caught and shipped off to a lab.   He escapes with the aid of another Ajin named Sato, and tries to hideout in the countryside living off the grid.

In the meantime,  Sato starts plotting to overthrow the government and conducts an increasingly violent and brutal campaign of assassination and terrorism.  The last part of the first season and the entire second season cover this.  Kei,  other "good" Ajin, and members of the quasi-governmental Ajin Control Commission try to stop him before he kills a huge number of civilians and plunges the entire country into chaos. 

The animation and gunfight scenes are well done and very accurate.   Seriously,  it's like an animated Michael Mann movie.   Just as good as the firearms action in Cowboy Bebop.   The dubbing and translation is also very well done, and it doesn't suffer from the odd disjointed dialog that seems to plague a lot of other anime productions.

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.

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.

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.

There are some very interesting explosions earlier... but it is interspersed with some clips of actual violence and language.

Very cool  :thumbup1.

They taught us that they took out the mouth to mouth part because Americans would rather watch someone die than give them oxygen. I'd prefer an ambu bag if it was handy, but if you can get past the ick factor, replenishing someone's blood with your expired air will greatly increase their chance of survival and assist your compressions. RA is at 21% o2 and even after we expire it, there is still plenty to be used by the unconscious victim.

Concerns about infectious disease have increased since the original rescue breathing technique was fielded. 
While I'm not saying that this is universal or even the most common attitude in the field, all of the medical professionals I'm acquainted with have told me they wouldn't give mouth to mouth without a shield unless it was a family member or a close friend, from which I infer they consider the risk of picking up something nasty higher than what they care to chance with a stranger.

When I was younger and still on active duty none of us non-medics even worried about gloving up when dealing with a serious bleeder, and to be frank in an emergency I still will just go in un-gloved and trust to my immune system and an intact dermis, then wash my hands thoroughly after...with alcohol if possible.

To my understanding, M1 Garands are getting pretty pricey now, aren't they? For some reason I want a Lee Enfield in .308 really badly.

Post by: Raptor on June 06, 2017, 02:49:35 pm
They are, unfortunately.  :'(  My favorite LGS has/had one in stock. Don't recall the manufacturer (I wanna say Winchester?), and the furniture looked kinda beat up, but I think he still had it marked at about $1K. Honestly, I'd prefer to save up my $$$ and get a new-production Fulton Armory M1 Service Rifle. I'm kind of leery of buying used, and I wouldn't feel bad about messing up a (potential) piece of history.

Lee-Enfields are nice, but I want the Garand specifically because it's gas-operated semi-auto. Those are much easier on my borked-up shoulder than a bolt-action. I can shoot a FAL all day long (maybe not on full-auto, but semi is a breeze to shoot), but after 3-4 rounds through my buddy's .30-06 Remington 700 I was done for the day. And if I get a Schuster gas plug, I can shoot commercial-spec ammo without damaging the rifle and potentially tune the rifle to have less felt recoil than with a standard gas plug.

CMP still has some great deals.  $830 for the Field Grade special.  Basically they take a field grade receiver and parts, refinish them and give it new wood and a new barrel.  It will have some pitting on the receiver, and it will shoot great.

Just to be clear, I didn't write this. Someone shared it in a Facebook group I'm part of. It's so utterly glorious, I just had to share it. It's a review of Pepsi Fire, Pepsi's new cinnamon-flavored cola.

Quote
As promised, a full unabashed review of Pepsi Fire.

I approached this taste test as i do any other. Putting aside my preconceived notions about the stupidity of this idea...and proceeded.

First I slowly twisted off the cap and was met with the typical "ssssss" of a Pepsi. Good sign. And then I decided to smell it briefly. Nothing too overpowering. In fact, it was fairly pleasant! I may have been wrong.

And then the first sip. Now. With a Pepsi, the carbonation always numbs my tongue the first time around. So I waited for the taste to set in for a second as I gulped down a large mouthful. And where I expected my senses to be tickled with a slight cinnamon hinted cola...

Instead they were assaulted with all of the force of a swarm of Apache helicopters each equipped with enough heavy artillery to flatten New York City faster than a DC Comics writer chasing a terrible plot device. Yes, this drink unleashed a wrath that has not been felt since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

As this concoction of carbonated water and Satan's urinary excrement slid down my throat, the first thing that was clear to me was the texture.

THIS WAS NOT SODA. This monstrous brew of the tears of dragons and lost dreams of third world children slid down my gullet with the viscosity of vegetable oil mixed with a few dozen slug trails. It clung to my mouth with its foul torturous tentacles of slime more convoluted than Nixon's presidency. I am not fooled Pepsi! This is no formula! You infused your Pepsi with red hots and made it sickly red, and turned it into syrup.

And then the taste...oh god. It wasn't spicy in a strong sense but it was warm enough to the tongue that the beaming, laughing, cruel and monstrous summer sun was only amplified as the teasingly icy liquid poured down only to be replaced with a sensation, not of relief, but if intensifying radiance. This tasted like watered down Fireball Whiskey without the satisfaction of the 40% alcohol content to numb my sensibilities to the taste. yes, this tasted like the attempts of an average frat guy to drown his daddy issues. Pure failure, regret and futility...As it found its way into my throat, the tingling began. Yes good people of Facebook, the tingling. It felt like spiders were crawling down my throat. Nothing could fix this and I was sure this was surely my lot in life now. There was no escaping. The Pepsi had possessed me, and would destroy my life as surely as Robert Bentley destroyed the state of Alabama...there was no coming back, my life was over. In my ears y'all I swear to everything I heard the Angels of Heaven weeping "God has abandoned us! Woe to Mankind and all his labors! The end is nigh!" As I said before, I usually expect the angel of frost and sugar to bless my throat when I drink Pepsi, but instead, I was greeted by the Angel of the Apocalypse who proceeded to break the seven seals of Revelations over my tongue with all the ferocity of Bruce Lee. My friends, Prophecies of the End of Days were being fulfilled from my taste buds.

And then I thought, maybe it was over...my suffering had subsided. The taste was there but ebbing...I had survived. And then it happened...as you do sometimes with Pepsi...I belched. The feeling could only be described by saying that I knew at any moment, the breath of the mightiest dragon would escape my maw and incinerate anything in my path. My eyes watered and I prayed for deliverance but lo, none was to be found. I was alone in this living hell with this viscous red mixture in which I saw the face of Lucifer staring back at me. Hours later, the experience still haunted me as the tingling fingers of demons LINGERED at the back of my throat and when I couldn't take it anymore, I had to warn others. I had to save someone from my terrible fate.

And so, with all the gusto of a romantically scorned teenage girl after one too many wine coolers, I talked....I told all that would listen to run...run away and never look back. Pepsi had bottled pure evil. And it was too late for me...weep not for me good people. Simply share the tale so that others may never fall before the Beast of Armageddon as I did...

Somebody posted this in the comments of Forgotten Weapons' video on the Winchester 1892. Figure most of you have seen this already, but just in case...

Quote
Winchester went down to Utah
He was looking for a design to buy
He was in a bind, the 1873 was way behind
He was looking to make a deal
When he came across a man
Filing on a levergun frame and filing it hot
And Winchester jumped up on a hickory stump and said,
"Boy let me tell you what:
I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a gun maker too,
And if you'd care to take a dare,
I'll make a bet with you
Now you make a pretty good levergun,
Boy, but give Winchester his due
I bet a mountain of cash against your gat
'Cause I think I'm better than you"
The man said, "My name's John and it might be a sin,
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret,
'Cause I'm the best there's ever been"

I just made a statement that touches on that in another thread, but I suspect that if you (generic you, not Booksmart "you" ;))are not safe with a firearm after one or two adult beverages then you're probably not safe with one if you're sick or tired; and if you lack the judgment to make that determination and stick with it you likewise probably lack the judgment in other circumstances as well. 

Bringing a case of beer to the gravel pit when you go plinking, probably not a good idea.

 :neener
There's a minimum level of judgment and intelligence needed to operate anything that has the potential to cause harm.    If your intelligence and judgment are borderline to start with you probably can't afford anything that will reduce them further.  From some of what I've seen on youtube many people are already below that minimum with a full nights rest, healthy breakfast to start their day, and having abstained from anything unwholesome for several months; they're lucky not to injure themselves opening a box of cornflakes. :neener
If you're well above that minimum you can probably afford a fractional handicap. 

Once again, I'm not suggesting that replacing the dart board in your local tavern with a steel silhouette is a good idea,  but I just have to shake my head at the often dogmatic knee-jerk protestations whenever this comes up. 
Impaired is impaired.   
If you're impaired to the degree that you can not do something safely then you shouldn't be doing it, be that handling firearms, driving a motor vehicle, chopping vegetables in the kitchen, climbing a ladder, or watching a baby.   
Doesn't matter if it's cough syrup, MD 20/20, legit RX, or just no sleep and weighty real world problems on your mind. If they're having a measurable negative effect on you that will degrade your performance to a level that is unsafe then you're a walking no-go.
The corollary to that is that if you're not suffering impairment as described then you're not unsafe.

None of those things are evil magic talismans which make things go to s*it just by their very presence.   
I do grant that they are hellacious force multipliers for idiot's looking  to exercise piss poor judgment.   

Overall I'd suggest getting rid of the idiot's to solve the issue rather than 86'ing the inanimate stuff. Darwin has a YUGE backlog to work on.  :coffee

Glad you liked it! Here is one more good one. Not sure if it's true, but I heard that back then, while they were a little rough around the edges, the older cops held more to the spirit of the law typically. If you shot straight with them, they would with you, but if you made things difficult for them then they would throw the book at you. I've also heard that with some of the newer police recruits now days, some of them need to be talked to for giving out citations to the point of being petty (I.e bureaucrats). The latter I remember hearing from one of our LEO's here.

Yeah, when I go into the woods, I have waterproof matches, a container for same, a couple of disposable lighters, a good flint and steel, a fire piston, a magnesium fire starter, and plenty of stuff that will light easily and burn well.  I don't care if it's pouring down rain, I WILL get a fire started!

A little of the magnesium ribbon I picked up at a garage sale will light just about anything else on fire once you ignite it.  Just don't look at it for long or you'll cook your retinas.

Had a high school chemistry teacher who had spent his formative years in the OSS during WW II.  One of the things he taught us was how to make your own thermite.  You needed some magnesium tape to get it started, but once you did, the results were impressive!

(Someone, not sure who, used some of it to slag down the lock on the football stadium, in order get in and detonate a 5-gallon container of homemade napalm on the 50-yard line.  Unfortunately, it also burned down the visitor's bleachers, because it was mixed just a little rich, and blew up instead of just igniting.  Glad I wasn't involved in that, could have gotten ugly!)

Rumor has it that the getaway car was a dark blue(?) VW beetle, between 1966-1972.  It may or may not have had a Corvair flat-6 motor installed.

Besides, the statute of limitations should have expired by now.


(The Corvair motor may have been available because the car it had been in had been "modified" to take a 327/375 Corvette motor, mounted where the back seat used to be. Not that I know anything about that, either.)

Spraying water on an aluminium fire is something everyone should try once. It is pretty impressive.

A fellow that was a assumed to be a little drunk ran his truck into the substation coming off the main transit line about a 2 miles from my house when growing up. The strange green glow was clearly visible from that distance for the short amount of time it was arcing.

I was about 8, but took the mental note to never drive into a substation. There was a molten metal area that appeared to be the vehicle and that was about it.

I agree with the above, but Clint seems to forget that it is a struggle just to get people to carry one full sized handgun, let alone two. Personally, I don't think I have the body real estate to conceal two full sized handguns  :shrug. It's very rare to see someone carry more than one firearm and when they do I wish to congratulate and encourage them. It is the one time I will give someone a big  :thumbup2 for carrying a .380 (as long as it is a BUG).

Sadly it's almost certainly a cheap replica.

2- The light rust on the blade suggests it hasn't been in the water all that long.

Well, if by "launch" you mean ignite the propellant and hope it goes from over here to over there somewhere, then I suppose you could use that term but if your aiming system involves a corrugated metal roof I'm guessing you've pretty much given up on actually hitting anything but the ground.  Eventually.   :facepalm

It was a fairly common way they'd use to fire them at our FOBS.     
Corrugated metal roofing doesn't draw attention the way a proper launcher does, not to mention you don't have to lug the launcher anywhere.  They also had plenty of rockets, and they don't have to hit anything in particular to gain something from the attack.   Just the temporary shutting down of operations gains them something.

Another popular trick was a block of ice suspending a mortar round over an improvised tube.  Set it up and be long gone when it fires, which was wise...our counter battery fire is/was swift.   

Whatever is used to launch the rockets (or mortars) is likely to be destroyed by our counter battery fire so why would they use real launchers and tubes on H&I fire?

So I'm guessing by the time that third rocket finally got going they were just about to be on the receiving end of some incoming?

If there is/was a counter battery set up within range, yes.
IIRC, our guys have ballistics computer w/radar that backtracks from where the insurgents fired.
It's also why out guys train to "shoot -n- scoot", because if they were firing on another modern force there would be incoming return fire from any OPFOR counter battery.    I believe this is one of the main reasons we moved towards self propelled artillery over towed pieces......all the better to GTFOOD with in a rush.

I'll say it now, Trump is not an orator.  He doesn't use elegant language.  That said, neither is he a crude, insensitive jerk.  That is a part he plays for an audience, not a grieving family.  As the general said, he was communicating a message that he was unable to (as a non service member) in the best way he could.  Any other details or accounts of the conversation are coming from a blatantly partisan source.

As to the rest, I don't pretend to be a source of knowledge into the world of spec ops and black ops that our servicemen engage in, and I know you don't either.  Those who truly know what happened, and why, are keeping quiet.  Those who are currently making noise about it... have no businesses doing so.

Quoted for truth. 

I'm thinking General Kelly's version is probably a good deal closer to the truth of the matter than anything else that has been reported.  The fact that he felt it necessary to step forward and speak on the matter tells me all I need to know about that one woman freak show from Florida.

Remember years ago, a group of cartoon voice actors performed Star Wars, and then a few years later did Empire Strikes Back? Well, the Saga (or at least the OT) is now complete!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMAASt4u5Cs


The same crew also put together a partial reading of The Princess Bride. It's not nearly as good as any of the Star Wars performances, but it holds a special place in my heart because I was able to watch this particular performance live.

Well, if what was shown is the only forge used he was using a simple coal forge with a bellows for the forging part of it.  That one looked to be made of shaped steel plates welded together and probably had some fire brick in the bottom of it.  The anvil, hammers, tongs and other forge tools looked to be fairly common usage farriers/blacksmiths tools.

Yup.  Looked like a fairly standard coal-fired forge - you could make the same out of a brake drum, with a hairdryer for a blower.

Nice looking blade, but he could have forged the bevels more.

Drift a hole through straight bar steel, would be the quickest, I would think.  Save you the time, effort, and money of thinning out a perfectly good cold chisel.

To be clear - the dude unquestionably has more experience making knives than I do. For instance, we know he's finished at least one that we call "pretty".

Yup.  Bar stock would have been a no-brainer for that piece.  Just as effective, easier to produce and he'd still have his cold chisel.  If he wanted something decorative he could have twisted a piece of 5/16" square stock, flattened and drilled the center for the blade tang and then flattened the ends and formed them into leaf shapes.   :shrug

Quote
The story of the 189 brave soldiers in the Swiss guard during the sacking of Rome in 1527.
Since Charles V, ruler of the holy roman empire couldn’t pay his troops they mutinied and forced their commander to lead them towards Rome where plunder was plentiful.
When the invading force entered the vatican pope Clement VII escaped to Castel Sant’Angelo via passetto di Borgo.
The few remaining guardsmen gave their lives on the steps to St. Peters Basilica.

Belt-fed weapons also tend to extract the brass sooner as well. So a perfect mix of nicely toasted brass coming down.

Oh, right  :doh . I forget that not everyone uses the same lexicon. I forget who first taught me the term, but social violence (sometimes referred to by John from active self protection as an "ego fight") is violence in which there is social disagreement, rather than self defense being fought for.

Any fight over an insult, love interest, "honour", or someone calling your mom fat are all perfect examples of social violence.

Uh, no.  I understand the definition in the context you gave but "John" doesn't get to alter the language any more than CNN does, IMO.  We have no idea what transpired before the video recording began of those two young men fighting.  Perhaps we can make an educated guess but we will likely never know what actually caused it.  The only thing relevant in a discussion of violence is fact.  Everything else is window dressing.

I didn't see your reply until just now  :banghead .

One of the reasons for me guessing it as social violence is because typically if it is a self defense situation (intent/ ability/ jeopardy), then the criminal will not politely wait for you to take off your prosthesis limbs and then proceed to fight you. If it is an actual intention to do you harm, if you have a handicap they are all the more emboldened by it.

There is definitely a difference between self defense and an "ego fight", but I don't think that's where your disagreement is. You were stating that our information before the footage is non-existent. While that is true, one fact we do have is seeing the able bodied teen politely wait for his adversary to take off his prosthetic limbs and then proceed to fight. This, by definition, eliminates the jeopardy of the situation most likely not making it self defense and limiting the severity of the able bodied teens attack.

Fair enough.

I have to agree.  There is not such a thing as 'social violence,' any more than there are 'hate crimes.'  Violence is violence, crime is crime.

Violence is violence regarding that it's always the last resort in conflict resolution. Because of that weight, that's why to save life and limb (self defense), it is justifiable. That is also why it is not justifiable to use it over a verbal disagreement (social violence). The seriousness of violence itself doesn't change (meaning the risk of physical injury doesn't change).

Everyone in this forum will agree that context of said violence matters. If it didn't, then we would not use language to differentiate "clean/not clean shoots" nor would we differentiate the difference between "self defense" and "murder". When framed in that manner, no, violence isn't just violence. If we did think of it in terms of absolutes then we'd have a fairly even division of T total pacifists and pro-murderous individuals, all of whom the context wouldn't matter for the action at hand because they would have assigned it a rigid moral value regardless of context or reason performed.

If the topic were that polarised, black and white, and reductionist in nature, well then I'd concede my point on context mattering. But even in East Texas (my state which is about as pro-death penalty as can be) the common saying among rural folk is "some people need killing". Some. Not all. Just some  :cool . There are no absolutes to be had even in Texas.

I feel like the topic got stuck somewhere between agreeing, but nitpicking vocabulary or just plain misunderstanding. Either way I'm ceasing the conversation on the grounds of being trivial. I may love a good debate, but even I need something with a little more substance than this before I consider it to be worthwhile  :cool .

The gent, John, who decided to create the term out of whole cloth is apparently unaware of or chooses to ignore those environments where failure to respond with force to such aggressions will almost assuredly result in being attacked from behind or by a group of assailants at a later date.   There is a whole world out there beyond the school recess yard and the strip mall where "bluff charges" aren't  ego posturing, but more akin to a shark bumping a swimmer to see if they're an easy meal.  Fail to demonstrate the ability along with the willingness to kcuf them up horrifically and you can end up anywhere from dead to beaten senseless and stripped of anything you thought you possessed.....including persons who looked to you for protection.
Also, there's no way to know how far a physical altercation,  actual or threatened, is going to go until it's all over.   Even in a playground shoving match, accidents happen.   Treat them all as if they're potential life changers, if not life enders.
There's no such thing as a friendly poker game when there's money on the table, and there's no such thing as an "ego fight".

It is mutual combat for certain. Now rather it is a social hierarchy fight used to determine pecking order is debatable.

Anyone who says there are not levels to violence is being purposely obtuse. Humans engage in all sorts of violence from using nuclear weapons down to the playful rib poke of a friend.

Ego fights/honorable combat/mutual combat/social violence/dueling is a part of human social interaction. Almost all social animals engage in some sort of social violence to varying levels. Humans have engaged in social violence varying from duels to the death, first blood with small swords, marquis of queensbury rules bare knuckle fights, to particularly aggressive games of peaknuckle. We even engage in sport combat for the sheer fun of doing violence. It is that deeply ingrained in the human experience.

Two humans engaging in some fisticuffs like in the video is not any different than two wolves snapping, snarling and pushing over their place in line to feed on a kill. Both specie are engaging in social violence in such a way as to minimize physical harm to possibly valuable members of their social group. Most altercations among humans end in perhaps a few scuffs and minor bleeding with no serious physical harm done in the same manner a 'fight' among wolves rarely end in serious physical harm to either wolf. There are obviously chances to be seriously injured in any act of violence, but there are chances of serious injury from just living.

I was hoping you'd chime in  ;)  :thumbup1 . There are definitely layers to it with possibility of injury at every level. That being said, I certainly would hope no one would ever bring a CCW to a boxing match :hide . Sure violence is present, but the situation doesn't call for the CCW. People have been injured/died in the ring before, but it is still a "game" nonetheless.

It is one of the reasons I like the term mutual combat for human interactions along this line. Mutual seems to state more clearly the nature of both combatants agreeing to the engagement. I dislike the term social violence simply because it is already used in biological terms to mean violence within a specie of social animals.

So if we use biological terms, social violence would include territorial disputes between groups(wars in human terms) all the way down to a mother wolf correcting a pup's attitude with a light nip.

I am just glad humans do not follow the Bonobos path, and reduce almost all social violence by substituting vigorous sexual activity.

I suppose that "mutual violence" clarifies things a bit more. After all, you can have two men agree to fight over a parking spot (a social situation with mutual violence) or you can have one man attack another over a parking spot (a social situation that spirals into self defense). What seems to be the key to all self defense situations is that the defending party is unwilling to fight, cannot convince the other party to stop their actions with words alone (or escape effectively), and is quickly running out of time to peacefully solve the incoming threat to their person.

Now that the frivolous part of the debate is over :neener , let's get to the important stuff.  What's your problem with Bonobos? Peace and love. Make love, not war  :neener.

To be a touch flippant, exactly which category  would "Han shoots first" fall into?   
The situation in which the non-agressing party recognizes that physical violence is inevitable and realizes that attempts to verbally de-escalate the situation are simply giving the aggressor more time to improve his position/determination and elects to jump ahead of the ODA of the aggressor?   

Or where the verbal assaults aren't about "pecking order" but about sizing up how much resistance/threat prospective prey may offer and the prospective prey elects, one again, to jump ahead of the agressor's ODA loop.     

Reality is that the start of a fight isn't when the first punch is thrown.

He never stated which party would act in violence first. He simply stated it was not in the realm of mutual combat. One party wishes not to engage in violence with the other party. This moves it out of the realm of mutual combat, and in to the realm of self defense with no real difference from defending yourself from any other violent crime.

MTK20 is simply stating there are levels to human violence. I would hope you would not use the same force to subdue a drunk uncle getting rowdy at a family gathering as you would an unprovoked attack on the street. The first you might use a kimura lock simply to control uncle till he calms down some. The latter you might use a kimura lock to see if you can twist an arm off at the shoulder and add it to your trophy wall at home.

It sure is, thanks for catching my typo.   If I had a paid editor or proofreader they'd long ago have retired in high style.

Drunk and rowdy uncle at a family gathering is going to get the same level of force applied as drunk rowdy random stranger on the street-  enough to cause him to cease doing what he should not be doing, which is going to probably be a tad more force than he's using.  If uncle is that type of an ass when alcohol has lowered his inhibitions then he's no longer welcome around me and mine, drunk or sober so I'm indifferent to the "optics" as long as my actions are withing legal bounds.  IIRC, most murders are committed by family members or others well know to the victim, and I wouldn't be surprised to see similar for assaults so I'm not going to cut much slack simply due to genetic ties.   Physical response to an assault shouldn't be excessive, that's why the subject of escalation of force gets discussed,  but it doesn't mean the victim of the assault can't leapfrog up the scale to whatever degree needed to end the attack then and there without himself suffering any appreciable injury. 

Once physical violence starts neither party has any way of knowing how far the other is going to take it nor how much damage is going to be done, purposefully or not.  Thinking otherwise is an invitation to get hurt badly, if one party is thinking of the altercation as "social violence/dominance posturing" and the other is thinking "I'm gonna maim/kill this punk", which is why I don't engage in a "playful rib poke of a friend" nor will I tolerate it.  Someone is going to get hurt.   

Outside of sporting competitions, training, and other ritualized activities where both parties are agreeing to a set of guidelines there is no way to identify or label something as "social violence" until after the fact.  "Bobby" may be talking crap and shoving Timmy in hopes of establishing himself higher up in the pecking order but from Timmy's vantage there's not going to be any way to be sure that it's going to end with just a bloody nose rather than being maimed or dead with Bobby walking away with his lunch money, and it behooves Timmy to act accordingly.  Bobby has no one to blame other than himself  for any injuries he receives from Timmy.

If we have no way of knowing beforehand how far physical violence will go when it starts. Then there is no need to use an idea like escalation of force. All attacks would be deemed use of deadly force, and the fastest and most secure method of protecting yourself is to use deadly force as quickly and as violently as possible.

You are contradicting your own points. You state physical response should not be excessive, and that no one knows beforehand. You also state that the victim should leapfrog up the use of force to end the attack then and there. Which can only logically lead to instant use of deadly force.

You are either poorly communicating your idea, or you are contradicted yourself in your own thinking.

We can either read social cues, and we can then use appropriate levels of force. Or we can not read social cues and when uncle gets rowdy we shoot him then and there. I assume since you stated we should not use excessive force. That means we can read social cues, and we can therefore have a pretty good idea beforehand if the action we are in is 'social violence'.

Nope. 

We can either read social cues, and we can then use appropriate levels of force.
The appropriate level of force is whatever level of force is needed to stop the attacker without you being injured.  A punch to the mouth can knock out just as many teeth whether or not the person throwing the punch intended to knock them out <robbery> or not <posturing/"social violence">, which means that the appropriate level of defensive force is the same. 
Or we can not read social cues and when uncle gets rowdy we shoot him then and there.

I assume since you stated we should not use excessive force. That means we can read social cues, and we can therefore have a pretty good idea beforehand if the action we are in is 'social violence'.
...a sentiment previously held by every assault victim who after the attack stated things such as; "I didn't think he was serious", "I can't believe someone would hit/stab/shoot someone over a parking space", "We always clowned around like that before, I don't know why he snapped this time", "Uncle always talks %^*& when he's had a few drinks, we were all dumbfounded when he stabbed Cousin with the carving fork", "We were gonna throw down, but I didn't think he'd keep kicking me in the head after I was down".

 If all attacks are deemed a potential use of deadly force, and you should use more force than your attacker as quickly and violently as possible. Then the only logical action to take to ANY force(potentially deadly) used against you is deadly force.

Your contradiction is clear and evident as stated in your own words.

I assume you are very poorly attempting to communicate the idea that any violence can have unintended effects. Which is true enough, but life is a risky gamble in itself.

You also are pulling out extremely low chance events to attempt to solidify your argument. I used the technique 'reductio ad absurdum' to show how absurd your argumentation has been so far. It was not the use of 'Appeal to Extremes'. They are easily confused, and I understand the mistake. Your use of 'worst thanksgivings ever' would fall under 'Appeal to Extremes'.

The vast majority of 'social violence' ends with no injuries beyond minor scrapes and contusions, and social cues work extremely well for all social animals, humans included. If they did not then social animals would cease to exist.

I hope your argument is something along the lines of, 'Violence of any sort is hard to predict. So I attempt to avoid all of it even friendly gestures from friends because of the chance of injury.' Which is a fine sentiment to have IMO.

Mine is a little different, but twice a week most of my close friends attempt to submit each other with various chokes, locks, and holds on some mats laid in a room in an old strip mall. Which is hardly normal behavior for most humans.

I know I said I would stay out of this, but I want to give Lowkey the benefit of the doubt and I think I see some middle ground here that no one is pointing out.

Here is the TL;DR arguments. As I see them.

Plebian: There are social cues that differentiate mutual violence from full on self defense.

Lowkey: Yeah, but you never know how far that social violence is going to go. If they are a poor loser, if they are drunk, if they are enraged, etc.

My thoughts: both are correct  :cool . Now, with the base understanding of every self defense encounter being composed of ability, intent, and jeopardy. This is what seperates the mutual/social violence from a true self defense scenario (but it can quickly lead up to a self defense scenario). They all lack jeopardy/time. In every social/mutual violent encounter I have ever witnessed, be it over a parking spot or at the club, the guy always issues a challenge to ensure that it is mutual/social combat. He will say "let's go outside", "let's settle this like men", or a simple "do you want to fight me?". As a responsible CHL holder it is my duty to decline this offer. He doesn't just go out to wail on you and turn all your innards into outards with no warning, they ask you. That 'offer' is still in the realm of verbal, if he has time to talk about kicking your butt, then you have time to talk or walk your way out of the violence. I have said several times myself "nah man, I'm not gonna fight you" and have left the encounter with nothing more than being called a "pussy". Fine by me, as no one got hurt  :coffee . In the few self defense encounters I have endured, I tried the same tactic of talking my way out of it and it failed. When they keep pressing and want to fight, while the other doesn't, now it is no longer mutual. Now one has found themself as an unwilling participant in a self defense scenario.

And btw, Lowkey, I agree. You never know how far that drunken fisticuffs will go in the parking lot, even if it does start off as what looks to be harmless posturing. That's why when they extend the offer for a fight, you reject it every time  :cool . No need to go around unnecessarily blasting uncles or drunken dude bro's  :neener .

Mine is a little different, but twice a week most of my close friends attempt to submit each other with various chokes, locks, and holds on some mats laid in a room in an old strip mall. Which is hardly normal behavior for most humans.       

Damn that sounds like fun. Once things get settled, I still have it on my list of intentions to join some kind of sport  :cool . I think you brought up a good point, there has to be a hell of a lot of trust in sparring. Injuries happen there too. This is why I would treat my sparring partner/drunken uncle/or drunken random dude bro keen on fisticuffs all with different degrees of caution. There can be bad outcomes in all situations, but sparring partners and trustworthy family members do get more leeway.

MK, you summed up my position quite nicely but I'd add you also never know if the invitation to "social violence" is simply sizing you up for later, a "shark bump" if you will.   


Plebeian: Your weekly sessions are  are not abnormal behavior and fall into what I described as "sporting competitions, training, and other ritualized activities where both parties are agreeing to a set of guidelines". 
You're arguing that  my position doesn't allow for a graduated response, which is untrue.  Do you need to break an arm to control your opponent on the mat, or can you simply keep applying more pressure to the lock?    If so, does that mean you are underestimating your opponents capabilities or are you simply using the least amount of force to decisively win the encounter? ;)

 
I'm still trying to figure out how, for example, a blow to the head is less painful or has a reduced risk of causing injury if it's "social violence" as opposed to a strong arm robbery and why the intended recipient of said blow should react differently to one vs the other.      :coffee

I understand your view on "shark bumps". I always try to keep my eyes on people who act a bit funny, even after the immediate interaction has ended. It doesn't even have to be violent behaviour, just behaviour that closes the distance such as panhandling for money or getting you to check the time (and making you look at your wrist or phone) while they keep approaching you. I noticed people do this more often in the city for some reason.

A blow to the head is a blow to the head regardless, but we win 100% of the fights we never get into and with mutual/social violence, it is the difference between a duel with pistols and a murder at gun point. Yes both are violent and both end in lethal GSW's, but one of those was agreed to. The key difference is that you refuse social/mutual invitations to violence and avoid the nonsense altogether. If they keep pressing and make you an unwilling participant, then it has left the mutual/social spectrum and is just common self defense. This really is no different than asking the difference between consensual sex and rape. Sure, sex is sex (or in this case violence is violence like you say), and yes all the risk of STI's and pregnancy are the same (or in this case the risk of injuries are the same), but by golly in one instance both parties have mutually agreed to take part in those risks and activities, and in the other instance one party took it upon themselves to engage in the risk and activity against the other person against their will. I don't know how to explain it any better than this  :scrutiny .

When rolling with friends you are not attempting to 'decisively win' the encounter. If you are using said hold/lock in a self defense encounter. Then you do not slowly apply pressure, but explosively apply the technique to destroy the limb involved. You know when and how to apply such things through reading social cues and context of engagement. It is much the same with drunk uncle. You read social cues and the context of the engagement to determine applied force. 

Head trauma has the same risks no matter what the context involved. Why should you not react the same if your buddy bumps you with a 2x4 on the head on the job site? It has the same risks of injury involved as social violence or a strong arm robbery. Or you can do like any sane individual and use social cues and context to determine the force to be used.

You might cover, crash, arm drag, and standing rear naked choke a fellow in a perceived 'social violence' encounter. Where same encounter without the social cues will likely result in strikes, throws onto hard concrete, or even gunshots with me caring much less about your physical well being and more about 'decisively winning' said encounter.

I have also found that a correctly applied choke to someone you think may be 'shark bumping' is highly effective to deter future action.

Post by: coelacanth on August 29, 2018, 08:19:10 pm
A few points, if I may, regarding conflict.  The aggressor sets the terms of the engagement.  Particularly true of the initial stage.  The only way to avoid this is to avoid contact with the aggressor or convince he/she/it that initiating aggressive behavior is a bad/possibly fatal idea. 

This generally precludes any sort of "social violence".   ( That term still is still worse than useless IMO  :facepalm  ) 

Violence in the form of training to develop skills and tactics for dealing with unplanned aggression/violence is best thought of as a form of inoculation designed to make the trainee stronger and more capable of dealing with the unplanned variety. 

People who have been trained to be lethal adversaries do NOT engage in "social violence".   They may encounter unplanned aggression/violence but part of their training involves tactical awareness and real time threat assessment and their training causes them to act in a manner that sends non-verbal signals to potential aggressors.  The more intelligent of these potential aggressors take note of these signals and generally avoid encounters with those who appear to be ready, willing and able to kill them without hesitation.   Exceptions may be, but are not limited to, drunks, drug addicts, mentally ill persons, the young and the stupid. 

There is no guarantee that training and determination will triumph in an encounter as there is no way to control all variables but it remains the best option. 

In my old age I have learned to keep to myself.  I keep my hands off other people unless asked for help.  I keep my opinions to myself in personal encounters.  I avoid encounters with strangers unless normal circumstances dictate them.  Even then I try to maintain situational awareness at all times.  I do all I can to avoid giving anyone or anything any reason or opportunity to initiate a confrontation or attack. 

I have been referred to as "grumpy", "cold", "stand-offish", "hard", "that old bast**d", "crazy", "loony" and many other less than flattering characterizations.   It is with some satisfaction that I think many or all of those people who made such references wouldn't try me on a bet.  I don't do "friendly pokes in the ribs".  I don't do "drunk uncles".   I don't do "social violence".   I don't loan money.  I avoid crowds with a nearly religious fervor.  I will take the long way around.  I will do my very best to be unpredictable until I am unavoidably confronted and then I will do my very best to be completely and unavoidably predictable in my response. 

These days my training has evolved to a regimen that tries to account for and offset the inevitable age related loss of speed, strength and agility while still maintaining real world relevance.  All of this may come to naught and someday I may still be hurt, maimed or killed by unplanned violence that I was unable to prevent but I will have done all that I know how to do and all that I was a able to do to either prevent it or prevail in the end. 

Maybe this off the beam re: what the rest of you are discussing but I felt the need to cut through a bit of the clutter and get to what I consider the heart of the matter.

I've been called "cold" and "distant" before, but I was surprised that you mentioned you were called "loony". Wonder why that is? When I think of people who are 'stand-offish' I think of low energy individuals, but with 'crazy' I think of people who are typically high energy (in example, the homeless guy who randomly shouts at people might be called "crazy", but he certainly isn't "stand-offish". He actually has no problem approaching people at all, that's the problem  :rotfl ).

And this.
All statements with which  I whole heartedly concur.


Head trauma has the same risks no matter what the context involved. Why should you not react the same if your buddy bumps you with a 2x4 on the head on the job site?
Because it's not violence.

Now if my "buddy" intentionally swings said 2x4 at me ("socially" or not) we can go to the multiple choice portion of the response process-
(a)he's no longer my buddy, period, end of story.
(b)he's falling off the building.
(c)eating a hammer.
(d)getting a cellulose suppository.
(e)All of the above.


I rather like the sentiment expressed below-

“I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.”

― John Wayne "The Shootist"

-------------------------------------------------------

On a tangent, forty-something years ago when I was starting school in NYC at good old PS55 my father gave me a few bits of sage advice regarding fights and fighting in general. 
First was to never start a fight but to always finish one. 
Another was that the type of person who challenges you to a fight is also the type who cries about loosing and tries to sue you after they loose.
Yet another was that there is no such thing as a fair fight, just try to avoid doing anything that will led to you being arrested.*




*While he phrased some of the additional details to that one differently, it can be summed up with the phrase you here from modern trainers, "The key word in the term gunfight isn't gun, it's fight.  Use whatever you get your hands on to give you an overwhelming advantage".

The Ferrari Driver in the cowboy hat was Arturo Merzario. Formula One, LeMans, Sports Car Racing, and he continued to race professionally well into his 60s. The cowboy hat has been his signature since his Formula One days in the mid-70s. And the Lamborghini Driver was Valentino Balboni, Lamborghini's senior test driver (as in he personally tested almost every car the company ever made) for 40 years, and only retired because Italian Law said he had to.

Agreed. I think I might have plated the metal parts to prevent corrosion - platinum or gold - but as an exercise in craftsmanship I like it.   

Uncommonly good photography as well.   :thumbup1

That is one of the nicer tops I have seen.  I want to do live edge epoxy counters in my house.  Just have to build new cabinets first, and do flooring, and finish the sheetrock, and....someday maybe.

We're doing that by accident.

Seems the waterline going into the fridge has been leaking, so I had to tear up the flooring.  It's turned into an insurance claim. Wheee...

So yeah, on top of all this social distancing and quarantining, we had a water mitigation team in for three days, to dry up/pry up the subflooring.

The quote we got from the insurance co's contractor had some obscene charges in it, so I'm going to do most of the repair work, to channel as much as possible into upgraded flooring, and maybe a new countertop (had mold inside one of the cabinets, from the leak - had to remove part of the counter, to take the cabinet apart).

I HATE plumbing.  I Hate repairing water damage.

I would hesitate to use the insurance company's recommended anything.  Also when I have had to work behind "water mitigation" people I seriously asked what caused the most damage. Them or the leaking hot water heater that dumped 3000 gallons of water into a walk out basement.

That said our company has found some extreme rot hidden away when surface "fixes" were considered good enough by other companies.  Who did not have enough money in the bid to dig deep enough to find the true depth of the problem.  There is some truth to the saying, "When in doubt, rip it out."

For whatever reason, our flooring is two layers of ~3/8 plywood, with a layer of roofing felt between them (I assume to both keep the boards from squeaking and absorb some vibration).

That felt absorbed a lot of the water and they had to rip out a layer of subflooring to remove it so it didn't mold. Otherwise, it'd never have gotten dry.

And yes, I replaced that water line into the fridge, and (once we're out of quarantine) we'll have a plumber properly branch off the cold water line going upstairs... about 8 inches to the right of where this naked copper line comes up through the floor.  :facepalm

The line that was originally on the fridge had 6-8" of lead, after the clip that attached it to the back of the fridge.

The new one that arrived to replace it had about 3'.  I suspect I know why.  There is now a piece of gorilla tape holding the line about a foot above the clip (and as mentioned, there will be plumbing work to Do It Right... which seems to be missing in all sorts of places in this joint, God help us).

Agreed. He should have made the package give a one time fog spray of chloroform. Call the cops, give them the GPS location of the package and thief, and let them do pick up for the arrest. This might violate some baiting hunting laws, but the streets would be cleaner and the cops deserve at least one stress free arrest  ;) .

Ehhh, knocking people out while a vehicle is in motion can be dangerous.  If it were just to the thieves, it'd be one thing, but it'd also be a danger to innocent people on the road.

Agreed but I think he was just throwing it out there for discussion.  And for the record, chloroform is not like getting tased where you immediately lose voluntary motor control ( usually ).  Any gaseous agent like that has to reach critical concentration(s) to elicit the desired effect, no?   :hmm
Might take a few seconds or if the windows are down and the car is moving at road speed it might not happen at all.  Or so it seems to me. 

My own thinking runs toward a prank I heard about many years ago where a vile smelling liquid was sealed inside a plastic bag ( vacuum storage bag as I recall ) and rigged to be slit on four corners by razor blades when the lid of the two part box was raised off the bottom section.  I think the box used was a modified apple box or something similar.   The box was not airtight or water tight and the liquid would immediately run out of the lowest corner of the box through four, small, strategically placed holes.   

Apparently the target of this prank was not highly thought of and managed to really pi$$ off somebody so they brewed up some truly vile stuff and came up with the delivery system and had it delivered to the guy's house with a very legitimate and official looking return address.  The story goes that his wife took the package inside and set it on a table and later when she talked to him on the phone and asked about it he told her to go ahead and open it while he was on the phone with her.  The subsequent cussing and screaming caused him to call the cops and bail out of work for home at best speed.  When they all arrived the wife was still puking in the front yard and nobody could stand to go in the house because of the smell.  Apparently the prank made the evening news in the small town where this happened and was talked about for a week.

Thanks for the source.  I had not realized this idea was published material.   We ( a co-worker and I ) kicked this idea around vis a vis feasibility on a few long overnight shifts.  We prototyped a box and found that a smaller box works better in that it doesn't get unbalanced as badly and provides more support for the internal structure than a larger box does. 

We accidentally stumbled on a potent recipe for a vile smelling liquid after summer holiday week-end cookout.   Rotting potatoes and shrimp shells allowed to ferment together in a trash can over a couple of hot days creates an unbelievable stench.  Truly, this is hazmat level stuff.  Ack .  .  .   :vomit

It was so bad we hesitated to try and handle it - let alone unleash it on someone.

I believe this is the half time show.

Much ado with noise and ruckus, accomplishing nothing.




I saw a photo exchange (Twitter/Instagram) the other day:
A BLM protestor asking where the 2A supporters were and why weren't the 2A supporters protecting the peaceful BLM protests
And there was an answering post of: Why support the BLM when they will be demanding more gun laws tomorrow?

Now that is a post I'd like to save.
