On This Day

During the bloody Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag. Marine photographer Louis Lowery was with them and recorded the event. American soldiers fighting for control of Suribachi’s slopes cheered the raising of the flag, and several hours later more Marines headed up to the crest with a larger flag. Joe Rosenthal, a photographer with the Associated Press, met them along the way and recorded the raising of the second flag along with a Marine still photographer and a motion-picture cameraman.

Gonna be hard to talk your way out of this, sis

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Albuquerque police have released body-worn camera footage that shows an alleged drunk driver doing cartwheels during a sobriety test.
Officers responded Friday night after receiving reports of a vehicle driving recklessly. Upon arriving, they found 23-year-old Bryelle Marshall passed out behind the wheel.
Officers were able to wake Marshall. When she exited the vehicle, police said the woman appeared to be “extremely intoxicated” and was stumbling and having a hard time listening to officer commands.

AR-15 Ammunition And Barrel Twist Rate

A very good article that I ran across over at WRSA. Be sure to watch the video at the end.

There are a lot of articles and discussion forum threads on barrel twist rate for AR-15s. So why am I writing one? Well, some of the information on the web is very wrong. Additionally, this closes out comment threads we’ve had here touching on this topic, EMail exchanges I’ve had with readers, and personal conversations I’ve had with shooters and friends about this subject. It’s natural to put this down in case anyone else can benefit from the information. Or you may not benefit at all. That’s up to you.

This is a discussion about 5.56mm ammunition and barrel twist rates (and later, about the shooter and ammunition quality). If you wish to debate the effectiveness of the 5.56mm round generally, or wish to disparage the choice of the Eugene Stoner system, I’m sure there are forums for you. This is not it.

In the real world, ammunition isn’t concentric, and even if it is almost precisely concentric, pour density can be slightly different throughout the ball, and voids can develop. This causes gyroscopic stability problems with bullets, even in the best manufactured ammunition. But much ammunition would not be considered the “best manufactured ammunition.” Ammunition will only be as good as the QA under which it was made.

Me and corn

I’ve got a big ol’ gap between my front teeth and nobody says a damned thing about it unless they happen to see me working on an ear of corn, then everybody’s gotta comment on how it looks like some drunk attacked it with a weedeater or how it reminds them of their kids when they lost both of their front teeth, or just looking at me with pity and handing me a knife and fork. Fuck all y’all.

Holy shit

A pedestrian was left with a fractured chest and skull when he face-planted into the ground after a runaway tyre hit him on the back of the head.
Roberto Carlos Fernandes, 50, was walking along the pavement with his wife in Ipatinga, Brazil, when the loose tyre came speeding towards him.
It had just come off a vehicle on the opposite side of the dual-carriageway – and careered over two reservations towards the couple.
It bounced several times before smashing into the back of his head – face-planting him into the hard concrete.

This is a test, only a test. If this were a real emergency…

Can you identify the make and model of this vehicle? And if you can, what method did you use to come to your conclusion?

Sorry for the size and quality of the photo, it’s what was sent to me and all we have to work with.

I vote No

The Supreme Court on Tuesday is taking up a case that presents a critical question of law: Can a U.S. law enforcement officer be sued in American courts for the death of a foreigner outside the United States?

For most of American history, the answer to that question has been a clear and emphatic “no.” Courts for two centuries have held that constitutional rights do not apply to foreigners with no voluntary connection to the United States.

PsychoChicks – we’ve all had ’em

A 76-year-old woman repeatedly beat her 63-year-old boyfriend with a metal baseball bat over the course of a day and a half, she told police after they found the victim unconscious and bloody in a closet in a northeast D.C. home, according to court documents.
The suspect, Thomasine Bennett, met officers responding to a report of trouble shortly before 1 p.m. Friday and told them her boyfriend was in the back and made her smoke the street drug “love boat” the previous night, according to court documents. She showed them to a hallway closet barricaded with a board and removed the board and opened the closet to reveal Walter Mack Clark unconscious, unresponsive and naked in the fetal position with his hands bound.
