  • Watch A Man Convert His AR-15 So It Fires ‘70,000 Rounds A Minute’

    10/05/2017 10:01:39 AM PDT · by servo1969 · 116 replies ^ | 10-5-2017 | David Hookstead
    One man showed millions of people how to convert an AR-15 so that it can fire 70,000 rounds in a minute. All Andy Orlando used was a mil-spec butter knife, and he “converted” a handgun and rifle into automatic weapons in less than five minutes. He got the rifle to a sustained rate of fire of 70,000 rounds per minute, and the handgun to a rate of 2,000 rounds per minute. Absolutely incredible accomplishment. I don’t want to give any of his secrets away, so go ahead and watch the video.
  • What we know about Mainak Sarkar, UCLA shooter

    06/02/2016 12:58:24 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 52 replies ^ | 06/02/216
    Police discovered what Sarkar titled his "kill list" at his St. Paul apartment on Agate Street, which listed the names of two targeted professors, one of whom was not on the UCLA campus at the time of the shootings. A Brooklyn Park woman was also listed. Brooklyn Park police discovered her body in her home at 12:35 a.m. Thursday. Neighbors identified her as Hasti. • Sarkar's motive for killing the professor was believed to be over the perceived intellectual property theft. • Beck said the professors knew Sarkar had issues with them, but didn't believe he was a danger. •...

  • The Reality of Ferguson (Vanity)

    03/12/2015 8:32:04 PM PDT · by ferg flute · 50 replies
    My wife and I have been living in Ferguson, MO for over 20 years. We live close enough to the Ferguson Police Station to hear the protestors that have been making their presence known over the past few months. We know many of the police officers, public officials, and private citizens who are movers and shakers in the community. We are close friends to many black and white residents in the city. We have watched the media reporting of the event and are appalled at the overall lack of journalistic ethics, blatant bias and agitative propaganda that is passing as...

    Would you leave a multi-billion dollar business up to chance? What if all of that time, emotion, and money has been wasted on a lie? What if the action on the field isn’t what it appears to be? What if you, and millions others like you, have been duped – outright lied to – by those franchises you hold so dear to your heart, all in the name of making an easy buck? Well, my friend, it has happened. And although your name might not be “Mark,” you have certainly become one to those running the carnival known as professional...

    Saturday, marked the second week of the #OccupyWallSt protests. With the endorsements of union bosses now firmly in their back pockets, protesters in New York celebrated the anniversary of their campout in a New York City park by shutting down the Brooklyn Bridge. This, of course, led to the NYPD to arrest many of the—more than 700, according to the New York Times. In a tense showdown above the East River, the police arrested more than 700 demonstrators from the Occupy Wall Street protests who took to the roadway as they tried to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday afternoon....

    For the time being these attacks seem to be limited to teenagers, but it won’t be long before we see professional criminal organizations begin to use them to coordinate higher-end robberies or even vendettas against others. As was pointed out in the afforementioned article, researchers suggest that it takes only 5% of a group to influence the actions of the other 95%. When the call goes out, the mob will act without even knowing why – they just will. This is exactly what happened in Wisconsin when they began vandalizing fair storefronts and robbing them, eventually turning their attention to...

    “I’m ready to offer my services for ur project. Contact me at ur earliest convenience 2 arrange for interview. Thanks in advance for ur consideration.” That’s a real cover letter from a real person claiming to be a real professional, who thinks she can get a real job. The letter was fielded by publicist and trend-spotter Richard Laermer, who gets so many of these he collects them and, when asked, forwards them to reporters for fun. The letter “just made me shake my head till it nearly fell off.” But it isn’t rare. In fact, Laermer says, it’s typical. “Lazy...

    Of all the slips of the tongue and unintentional admissions by this administration, Robert Gibbs’ “professional left” comment may well be the one they wish they could squeeze back into their collective windpipe the most: I hear these people saying (Obama) is like George Bush. Those people ought to be drug tested. … I mean, it’s crazy. … The professional left … will be satisfied when we have Canadian health care and we’ve eliminated the Pentagon. That’s not reality. … They wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.

    Given Russia's reputation for excessive bureaucracy, it's only right that a company would exist to help businesspeople to set up, find the right translators, and also provide the right legal guidance to navigate the Byzantine direction of Russia's business bureaucracy. Center of Economic Planning consists of a professional team of skilled translators, auditors and IT specialists who will also not just help foreign businesses, but also help native Russians build their businesses.

    Since the Sept 11, 2001, attacks, the FBI has been criticized for not having enough employees fluent in foreign languages and for not moving fast enough to upgrade its computer system. FBI Assistant Director John Raucci of the Human Resources division said the federal law enforcement agency is seeking to bring more people on board with skills in critical areas, especially language fluency and computer science. "We're also looking for professionals in a wide variety of fields who have a deep desire to help protect our nation from terrorists, spies, and others who wish us harm," Raucci said. He said...

    This woman leads a double life. Her boyfriend thinks she’s a secretary. In fact she is one of Japan’s new breed of professional seducers, hired by embittered spouses to entrap their straying partners. And she’ll stop at nothing to get the desired results.Case 1: Mr A and Kyoko 3.30pm. Mr A is outside a bank in a busy part of Ikebukuro, a faintly seedy area of Tokyo, waiting for his date. He beams as she teeters across the road on high heels. Kyoko, 20, is half his age. She has a mane of black hair, sloe eyes, a fetching smile...

    Like many other baseball fans, Joe Kosa, 28, is spending his Sunday glued to a TV. But relaxed he's not. Instead, the ESPN (NYSE:DIS - News) production assistant is stationed in front of dozens of flat-screen TVs tuned to global sporting events at the headquarters of the Disney-owned network. He's furiously jotting down notes to weave into a storyline that will be read in 60 seconds flat on tonight's 6 p.m. SportsCenter broadcast. With the San Diego Padres leading the Chicago Cubs 9-0, the outcome is hardly in doubt, and writing the highlights should be easy. Then, Clay Hensley, who...

    IT SOUNDS like the television anchorwoman’s ultimate nightmare. Take lavatory break. Leave personal microphone on. Have cloakroom gossip — including how much you hate your sister-in-law — broadcast live in excruciating detail during a nationally televised speech by President Bush. CNN was forced to apologise yesterday after such a fate befell Kyra Phillips, whose trenchant views on her brother’s wife, mixed with the sound of zips and running water, drowned out Mr Bush as he spoke live from New Orleans to mark the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Her inadvertent comments gave the name of her show, Live From, a...

    Better safe than sorry is the official response to the collapse of the Forest Gate anti-terrorism operation. Better safe than sorry is apparently the inquiry conclusion on the police killing last year of Jean de Menezes in a London Tube train. Better safe than sorry is justifying the erection of concrete anti-bomb slabs round Waterloo and Victoria stations. In each case we are told that you cannot be “too safe” when it comes to public security. These responses may or may not be justified. They seem wholly disproportionate, but then none of us knows the extent of the secretly perceived...
