    Yup. I’ve seen the real deal with my very own eyes back in my grandpa’s church. I’ve seen peoples’ faces distort, voice deepen, slither under pews almost like snakes, seen a skinny 9 year-old give 3 grown men an ass-whuppin’. It’s ugly and reverence is of the utmost importance. Doing it for show business does not seem to me like a wise move.

    In fact, I doubt the enemy would put on a show for all un-believers to see. They’ll probably find nothing and the producers will edit the footage to make it seem like something.

    Google “compression artifacts”

    Essentially, when you encode/compress video, you’re taking away content and image data to make it fit in your storage medium. When you play it back you have to interpret the data that you have left in order to rebuild the image. When you do that, the decoder generates content that wasn’t in the original raw video. You can see the “macroblocks” (the image segments that the video gets divided into when encoding) quite clearly all throughout the video, which means there is heavy compression going on, and correspondingly many coding losses, which translate into a lot of artifacts on playback.

    I am a believer, and believe in miracles, but this isn’t one of them. This is simply the result of the compromises in technology being misinterpreted by religious bias.

    “K!ke” or “Quique” are commonly used as nicknames for “Enrique” in Spanish. Pfft! I even had to censor myself or the website would do it for me. I Miss America.

    The black and white image makes me think it’s the night-vision mode of the security camera. What happens is that most of these night vision security cameras have infra-red illumination LED’s around them to improve night visibility. Some specks of dust, depending on their constituent materials, are particularly reflective in the infra-red spectrum and look bigger in the camera than they really are, because they scatter the IR light reflecting off of them.

    IOW, nothing to see here. Move along.

    This is why they say “Don’t try this at home, kids!”. Professionals think about things like debris field, shrapnel, effective range of what they’re using, before they use it. A professional respects the deadly powers they’re dealing with and have a check list. From the video I’d bet my left one that they even used the rock to prop up the charge off the ground.

    I try to approach every trip to the range like a professional and I don’t fart around, lest I have one of these “Hey guys, watch this!” moments. I’ve had enough close calls to be tired of these bubbas and get a little nervous when they assign noobs to the lane next to me.

    I hate to pontificate, but let’s all do our part and keep an appropriate level of respect for things that go boom.

    I’m going to have to give the authorities the benefit of the doubt here. U.S. Marshals are usually looking for dangerous people and you don’t know if the person is passing intel on the activities to the people being pursued. If it’s just someone getting pulled over or stop-n-frisked then it should be OK to record away.

    Suppressors are not like lowers. To manufacture them without permission is to be in serious shizzle with the BATF, so I would hope they got their docs in a row. This is strictly for prototyping a device whose design can be more of a black magic, as they say. The industry is a long ways away from production cans that are 3D printed. These things get HOT. They make mitts to take to the range so you can remove them from your gun after you’re done shooting. It’s not likely the metal 3D printing materials will be able to handle those kinds of temperatures and pressures right now, or in the near future.

    Respectfully disagree. When I lived in FL I took a grainy photo of a lynx I saw in an empty lot in my neighborhood, and I’d say the upright and pointy ears give them away. This crafty cat does not seem to have those pointy ears.

    Missing poll option. Both. Kids are disrespectful by nature and need to be taught respect. As a parent of an 18-month old, I know it starts now with the little things. Establishing trust and communication so that when you go up to a monument to honor someone (or in any context, for that matter), we can explain respect and honor and they will receive what we are trying to convey.

    You’d think by now we’ve proved evil people will use all the tools at their disposal without regard for law, but the other side will never get rid of the idea that it is possible to legislate and fund evil away. So we’re still having to pay $200 for the privilege of buying a suppressor or a short-barreled anything because at some point in time gangsters were sawing off barrels and hiding their guns in their trenchcoats. Those little stunts got a lot of publicity and it’s in that context that these laws were written.

    Oh and waiting 6 months to receive ATF’s blessing truly sucks; it’s like writing the list to Santa in July. 1 down, 5 to go.

    I’ve also read many forum posts saying you shouldn’t dry-fire without them or you risk wearing away at your firing pin/striker. I don’t have much experience with that particularly so I couldn’t say yea or nay, but I love them anyways. I don’t take any new toy to the range without first getting the snap caps for that caliber and practicing all the functions thoroughly.

    Yup. Problem is, down there it’s a good time of year to leave the doors and windows open. After April you don’t do that because it’s not like the dry heat like you have down there in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, etc.

    I wonder if the thugs were “locals” from East Orlando or “imports” from Crime Hills (AKA Pine Hills) or other wonderful parts of West Orlando. I remember when West Orlando was a beautiful place to live about 20 years ago, now it seems they can’t go a week without a bank robbery.

    The unlocked apartments are pretty typical of students. They are either too ignorant, intoxicated or wanting to keep their doors “open” for friends to drop by any time.

    This is a must watch on the topic of the Exodus:

    Usually insecticides have a federal warning that it is a punishable offense to use the product in a manner not prescribed, like for personal defense instead of killing ants. They’re considered low-level nerve agents and Comrade Holder would love nothing more than to charge you with chemical warfare and terrorism for having the audacity to defend yourself.

    Roger that. It did take a huge toll on him, but it seems like he would dwell on the deaths of his team mates and Marines more than on his “kills” as a whole. As far as the people in his scope, he seems to have had closure on that by the time the trigger reset.

    I see both sides of the issue, but the critics are simply wrong. Having read the book, I know there are , in fact, parts where Kyle does in fact call insurgents (not all Iraqis) savages and that he enjoyed his work and felt no sympathy for those who would do harm. The libs who WANT to depict him as a maniac (like the deranged Ed Schultz) will single these out and not take those parts in the context of the whole book. That’s how you know they haven’t read it.

    If they had, they’d know that Kyle was grieved at having to shoot women and children when they presented a threat as well as when the insurgents committed violence against or disregarding the lives of their own people. He also enjoyed working closely with the Iraqis when the tribal elders realized the insurgency was a liability and needed to get kicked out of their province.

    He did sound “flippant” at times but if you wanted to be intellectually honest you’d also have to take that in the context of the man as a whole as well as the experience that he went through.

    Nick “The Reaper” Irving is the heat.

    He’s got a book out that’s supposed to be pretty good too. I’ve read excerpts and sounds pretty intense.

    They need to retool it, reorganize it and rename it. Call it something like “Current TV”. Or something…
