***Well, this certainly didn't turn out as I'd expected!:o

Another prime example of WTF is wrong some people!

Here is the story about what happened before the video starts: http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-road-rage-video-santa-clarita-20170623-story.html

They were headed southbound on the 14 Freeway, and driving in the No. 1 lane, when the man on a Harley Davidson-type motorcycle passed them on the left, riding close to the double-yellow lines that separate the general traffic lanes from the HOV lanes.

About 150 feet ahead was a Nissan sedan driving in the HOV lane, Traber said. Just as the motorcyclist was passing the sedan on the right-hand side, the sedan tried to exit the carpool lane and enter the No. 1 lane. That’s when the car bumped the bike.

“I’m sure he didn’t see the motorcyclist,” Traber said of the driver. “He scared the living daylights out of the motorcyclist. He almost went down. That guy can really handle his bike.”

Traber said that after the motorcyclist regained control, he pulled up to the car’s passenger door and began gesturing at the driver. Traber said he appeared to be saying something too, but Traber couldn’t hear him. He said he figured the biker was “saying something like, hey, you almost hit me! Watch out!”

Traber said it looked as though the driver was yelling something back at the biker, and that it didn’t help matters, because that’s when the motorcyclist started kicking the passenger door.

China rocked by an explosion of illegal weapons in the hands of children.

I want one.



Then build you one. I did 40 years ago in metal shop. Got an A on it too. But at the same high school I was also in gunsmithing class.
It was not unnormal for someone to have a gun on the bus and also walking though the school with one. Nobody batted an eye or thought anything bad was about to happen.
But that was before being a G was cool. I wish I could turn the clock back.

Nuclear power plant holds a contest for internships.:)Some people have a problem with this.[:/]

"Many questioned why boys were not allowed to compete, and eventually the company issued an apology, stating all 10 applicants had won."

That's hilarious, they're having all 10 applicants join them as interns as their concession. In the meantime there's a frizzy haired straight A engineering student trying to figure out why the fuck she even bothers.

You'll put your eye out (apparently some kid lost an eye to one of these).

And I agree, make one.

Spring, string, stock and release mechanism of some sort.

Edit to add:

Google "Toothpick crossbow plans build":
https://www.google.com/search?q=crossbow+plans+build&rlz=1C1TSNO_enUS478US478&oq=Crossbow+plans&aqs=chrome.5.69i57j0l5.8361j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#q=toothpick+crossbow+plans+build

All sorts of info, including (of course) a "How to" YouTube video.

Well, These Idiots made the rather unsurprising discovery that a book isn't bulletproof.

Unfortunately, the guy was holding the book in front of his chest at the time.
And is now dead.

And the girl is facing homicide charges.

It could be a Darwin Award, but they already have one kid together and she's pregnant with another. So he's already reproduced.

Couple of thoughts: MythBusters did this one a while back. While there are anecdotal examples of books stopping bullets, it's usually a "stray bullet" type of situation (gun fired a long way off and much of the velocity and energy have dissipated).
She used a Desert Eagle .50 cal. One of the more powerful cartridges out there. I have personally witnessed one of these go through about 18" of wet newspaper at 50 yards in a controlled test situation. Guy had one and wanted to see how powerful it was, and how the bullets would expand. So he built a trough and had wet newspapers in plastic grocery bags. Rather impressive.
The idea that a book a few inches thick would stop one of these is ludicrous.

Kind of reminds me of the scene from the TV series which I think is Psych. People got locked in the bank vault on a weekend day so it was supposed to be closed, but there was a mime all decked out in silver paint standing perfectly still like a statue outside the bank, and the guys inside the vault knew it. So one of them rigs the control panel to the bank marquee sign to send a message hoping the mime would notice it and call police. It was kinda funny.

Geez... You'd think the real estate company would have the owner clean out a bunch of that junk and stage the house for sale. Less clutter the better. :S
