    1. No reason to show the same chart three times.
    2. Whoever wrote the headline needs to read the article.

    Wait for it . . . Y’all do realize of course that to the left (including the DoJ) this will be classified as one more example of gun violence.

    Yep. Those “official stats” NEVER differentiate between “offensive” and “defensive” uses of a firearm.

    Had he dropped the shitbag, this would have been just one more “senseless handgun death.”

    Lie of ommission. Your tax dollars at work.

    Strega: similar experiences. The truth of the matter is for the same job, same experience, same training, competence, etc. women are paid 6 cents MORE per dollar than men. We continue to offer MORE opportunities (“affirmative action”) for young women than men. As a parent of both boys and girls, it tore my heart out to see my son (vs daughters) continually be beaten down and cheated out of opportunities based on his gender.

    The war on boys and men is REAL. We have created a generation of “men” who will never grow up because we expect so little of them.

    No wonder so many of them hide in their mothers’ basements playing video games and smoking pot into adulthood. What’s the point?

    The game is rigged. Why even try?

    When I was competing, I would burn a little over a thousand rounds of non-jacketed ammo a week . . . during the winter, at indoor ranges.

    Here’s an idea: WEAR A G-D PURPLE FILTER RESPIRATOR NUMBNUTS!!!!! Even wearing the NIOSH (purple filter- aerosolized lead) mask, at the end of a training session or match I could taste the lead in my mouth.

    Since I was active duty military, I got my lead levels checked monthly. Never had a problem.

    Once again, we want to so stupid things and have others pay the consequences.

    Yeah but Been There, Done That. Ever heard of our ABL program in the 1980s? 747 with a laser cannon on it.

    Just like the bogus “Tractor Beam” story. Good God we are extras in the movie Idiocracy! What is it with these Eastern European “scientists” amazing ignint Ameurricans with parlor tricks of yesterdecades?

    Under Islam, you are required to LIE to the INFIDEL to advance the CAUSE.

    Progressives in America have their own version.

    Since the left are the Righteous Believers and the non-left are Unbelievers, you MUST do everything you can (“By Any Means Necessary;” to include cheating at the polls) to seize and maintain POWER and CONTROL.

    As long as it ADVANCES THE CAUSE of socialist fascism . . .

    ” . . . published in the journal PLOS . . . ”

    Classic. Y’all realize PLOS is a “boutique” journal created SPECIFICALLY as an outlet for dubious crap that can’t be published elsewhere? It’s the “Wikipedia” of people frustrated that reputable sources won’t publish their “findings.” Open Access, Peer Reviewed . . . yeah, right . . .

    Might as well have said “Published in the Journal Of Dubious Irreproducible and Anecdotal Opinion.”

  • [1] October 22, 2014 at 3:31pm

    So . . . . they demonstrate that if you ablate the surface of something, the “boil off” pushes against the surrounding air. Goodness gracious those eastern european scientists are great at marketing simple stuff for fun and profit!

    Using hot gasses to push something around is like 1700s technology. Do it with a laser though and it’s sexy!

    Shrimp on a treadmill is better than this 5th grade stuff . . .

    Not a stupid question at all. For a “rubber bullet” to work, it has to have the right combination of velocity, mass, and cross sectional area. Too fast or heavy or skinny and it will penetrate. Too slow or light or fat and the perp won’t be deterred.

    Shotguns only- 12 gauge or fatter, about 3/4 ounce, and ~600 fps is a real attention getter and leaves a big a$$ bruise to show your friends.

    Oh yeah and center of mass shots only please. Head shots are a definite no-no; rubber bullets can kill you just as dead as a 2×4 if delivered to the right spot.

    Hey feminists- start holding your sistahz to the same standards as men and poof a lot of the rationale for what you label “sexism” will go away.

    We lower the standards for women in the military, police, firefighters, EMT, etc. etc. etc.

    Get off the affirmative action gravy train and then we’ll have an intelligent conversation.

    [and don't even get me started on the FACT that for the same job, work experience, training etc. women are paid 6 cents per dollar MORE than men. Not averages- actual payrolls.]

    For the socialist-fascists out there, that means if you want to do anything about global warming, you have to do something about the amount of energy the sun is pumping into the planet. Orbiting sunshades and whatnot.

    Not destroying free-market capitalism, the greatest source of wealth creation ever devised by man.

    Not only is the temperature not rising . . . But CO levels change AFTER the temperature does. Those are two pieces of pretty damning evidence that “rising CO levels” (from WHATEVER source) do not “CAUSE” warming. If anything, rise in temperature* causes CO outgassing.

    *the correlation between solar output and global temps is much more significant AND (bonus time) the “effect” happens AFTER the “cause” just like real science would require.

    Ummm, maybe, maybe not. The most likely scenario is the one you left out.
    He may have followed the proper procedure, but the perps closed the distance before he was able to exit the vehicle.
    In other words, the perps were the aggressors in this stop from the very beginning.

    “Race Norming” (giving free points based on skin color) has been standard practice for all ETS exams (SAT, ACT, MCAT, LCAT, etc.) for decades. Number of points vary year-year based on how much lower the group scores are than the population.
    Bar exams are managed by each state. So each state has the choice to either “race norm” or not. However, most states use subcontractors to manage the exams. Bottom line: race norming is considered a “best practice” and any state or exam agency NOT using it is opening themselves up to lawsuits.
    It is what it is. Obviously not going to change in our lifetimes.

    Most importantly- none of these incidents are ever logged or tracked. There is no system to even measure fraud, let alone prevent it.

    The argument “There is no evidence of widespread fraud” is a tautology. Absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence.

    I lived in Texas (Denton County) for 8 years (2004-2012). I voted in every election held during that time (5 or 6 elections).
    I personally witnessed or had first-person admissions from perpetrators of fraud IN EVERY SINGLE ELECTION!
    1. Walk up to sign in desk and point to a blank space in the book. Sign for someone elses ballot. Saw people refused a ballot because someone else signed for them three times. Sherriff hauls them away. The complainers; not the perpetrators.
    2. College students vote absentee in home town and also register and vote on campus. Student DNC groups actually send emails explaininghow to do this. Happened in at least 3 elections; I didn’t ask the first couple of times because I was unaware this was even possible. No state-wide registration system.
    Those were the two most common ways of cheating. I saw church busses pull up to the polls and disgorge hordes of people at the polls each election. Lots of 15 pax vans trolling through urban neighborhoods offering cash, booze, cigarrettes to round up people to vote.

    Jim S- way too early to know how many are already infected. Previous outbreaks of EVD took 7-21 days for symptoms. This mutated strain can take up to 30 days before ANY symptoms present. So, at this point, if we totally quarantined everybody . . . We wouldn’t know for another couple of weeks how many were infected.

    6 years enlisted then “stripes to bars” might put him in a different category than “ten years a Lieutenant” (which is pretty much impossible- he would have been quality force-d out long before ten years).

    However, going for the warning shot to the groin does him no credit in the noodle department . . .

    Repeat story from a a day or so ago. Same comment here: exciting stuff, but “net break even” can be a bitch. Hopefully this technology can get there. In a few decades we will know whether net BE is even possible

    It was IN HER PENCIL CASE fer cryin out loud. On top of her desk. She was rooting around in it during th exam. She had acheat sheet AVAILABLE to her during the exam. The faculty member saw her rooting around in her pencil case “more than expected;” so he had “probablu cause” to look in the pencil case . . .

    However, he did not have cell phone video of her physically reading the cheat sheet; therefore, chicken **** administrators went with a “compromise.” The family smells weakness, so “Game On.”
