  1. Andy, There isn't room to, say, stick a grenade in the barrel of a 2 pounder, like there is a a 3.7 Inch. so I wonder what could've achieved the same net result? Blocking the muzzle would've rupured the barrel farther back, not petaled the muzzle. Maybe I'm wrong. Regards, John Kettler
  2. Fabulous example of fawning celeb fashion coverage. How to be stylish hot young female star? Wear a t-shirt with a Dickies logo to dinner! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6949637/Game-Thrones-star-Sophie-Turner-heads-dinner-fianc-Joe-Jonas-pals.html This is really something, but you'll have to look it up, since there's some chance the Mods might not like the pics. Great white shark chokes to death on a sea turtle: 4,500-pound beast is found tangled in netting off of Japan Finally, here is a previously unknown to me lift technique from dance. No idea who the performer is. Regards, John Kettler
  3. Michael Emrys, Don't know how many degrees of separation we should count that as, but considering the enormous numbers of movies made since, a most singular thing you were involved in that particular work. Was in "Viva Evil Knievel!" myself as an extra, but didn't make the crowd shot, probably because my sky blue leisure suit (they told us to dress up) was a neon sign in the bleachers where everyone else, beaten down by the sun in prior days of shooting, was in t=shirts, shorts and sandals, all seemingly in the brown and tan color range, too. Regards, John Kettler
  4. Andy, An outcome I can live with. My video analysis skills were ~0 when I found that in the ultra wee hours this morning. Thanks! Regards, John Kettler
  5. Children have ridden on ponies, goats, dogs, pigs, ostriches and more, but I believe this is a first. Truly shocked me when I saw it. Regards, John Kettler
  6. Time for some major art history weirdness. The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch is a truly out there piece, but it contains within it something stranger. Would you believe music? Here is a detail from the painting, showing the backside of some fellow whose rear has music on it. Turns out that's real music, and here it is. Regards, John Kettler
  7. Here's an excellent argument in favor of carefully rethinking having creatures in your music video. Had she been a bit closer, this could've been pretty dire and quickly, especially if it elected to pursue her, for they are very fast. https://66.media.tumblr.com/e27589fae1123f27caa210ae3fe89ee6/tumblr_p38tix8GAp1w7u8nmo1_1280.gif Regards, John Kettler
  8. Andy, Am no fan of the FDA given its history (check out GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) for starters), but if ever raising the alarm was needed over something in its bailiwick, it's what you posted. On a lighter note, rather than face her outraged parents after being caught in the act, they eloped! Possible employability issue? I suppose this was inevitable, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. Pink pistols were hard enough to stomach. If you thought Cabbage Patch dolls were out there, get of load of these heads! Am now positively nostalgic over the former. Possible evidence the Queen's soldiers don't have enough military duties to keep them occupied? Was going to have fun with a bank heist crew description, but then I saw the Hesco barriers. Regards, John Kettler
  9. "There seems to be something wrong with the gun, sir." Was this a dead on muzzle strike? Regards, John Kettler
  10. Sublime, Is there a prize, or does it simply lie in the experience? In any event, I found this newly released article. It offers an insight-producing look at the builders of Stonehenge, the movement of Neolithic groups over vast distances, and the change in the very nature of civilization in not yet named England. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/dna-reveals-origin-of-stonehenge-builders/ar-BBVZlcw?ocid=sf A vessel called Blue Marlin brought the badly damaged USS Cole Home, and it can carry an entire GOPLAT, but look at its barge load. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2158305/Thats-load-ships-The-carrier-boat-hold-22-barges--oil-rig--back.html Regards, John Kettler
  11. My kind of kinetic sculpture. These ladies are in terrific shape to be able to do this. Had no idea such a thing was possible. Regards, John Kettler
  12. Once pink guns arrived, could pink tools be far behind? Apparently not, but this is a bit much. Regards, John Kettler
  13. Fortunately, there's YT. Am absolutely baffled as to how they maneuvered this particular tank with no one in the cupola nor any evidence of rear view mirrors, though they may've been lost to me in the tremendous amount of visual clutter and excitement. It's easy to see how one could be mistaken as a Tiger 1. To me, a IV/H in full array like this one is one of the most marrtial looking tanks ever. Regards, John Kettler
  14. On the other end of the scary spectrum, it wouldn't be hard or expensive to field a bunch of these Antey (makers of the 40N6 missile for the S-400 Triumf) critters--which could then proceed to eat alive at least the smaller drones out there: Raven, quadcopters, Pioneer or anything along those lines. Because of it, things might develop like WW I where fighters were developed to protect the helpless recon aircraft. That, of course, is ignoring the thing's havoc raising potential in ground attack. Imagine a TOC getting chewed up, Patriot radar shredded, API into POL or ammo, and let's not forget assassination. The concept was already shown on NCIS, where a murder was committed remotely using a drone with a semiautomatic pistol built in. This one's got a semiautomatic 12 gauge with a large magazine. Believe everyone who's not Russia or strongly allied with it needs to figure out a crash response, for even a few could cause all sorts of havoc. The Ukrainians, for example, would quickly lose those drones now enabling them to get PGM level performance from ordinary unguided artillery and mortar projectiles. FoxtrotAlpha calls this shotgun-toting drone a nightmare. Speaking as a student of warfare and a highly experienced former Threat Analyst, this drone could cause mayhem, in ways likely and also unexpected. Drone countermeasures will almost certainly become essential if it hits the field even as a handful of prototypes, and defenses for us and allies would probably be a mix of soft kill and hard kill weapons. Regards, John Kettler
  15. This proves, yet again, there is no such thing as a routine flight. https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/civilian-on-fly-along-accidentally-ejected-from-fighter-1833821292 Regards, John Kettler
