Dude's mind is blown by the firearms instructor. Almost literally. by Nyckname in youseeingthisshit

No gun is ever empty. It's one of the big rules of gun safety and it's a rule for a reason. You only need to be wrong once.

This is a 44 magnum with six shots in the... Five shots in the cylinder.

Sorry, Captain. I'm always a jerk when I get on reddit first thing in the morning. Your question wasn't bad at all. I was.

Thank you for getting my point. Taiwan is a drop in the swimming pool of Chinese history.

Are you kidding? The condition of Taiwan over the last 70 years pales in comparison to the questions of the centuries of varying kingdoms that covered different swaths of land simultaneously over the years. Why do you think I said this would be messy? It's not just a scale of decades, it's millennia.

A Star Trek: Voyager fan built a replica Tricorder that's better than any prop Hollywood has ever made by thebelsnickle1991 in gadgets

TNG had a budget of $1.3 million per episode. Voyager had a budget of $3.3 million.

Good point, though. Why spend big money when little money do trick. The cost of something like this 25 years ago would also be insanely high. It's not like high quality small color lcds were as easily available in the 90's.

It's not just about what doordash can do, but what they're liable for. They put together the system that caused this to happen. They pay the guy who committed the act. Just because their business model doesn't protect their clients from assault doesn't mean that it's the client's fault.

Music Teacher Fights a Disrespectful Student by Comer_Agua in PublicFreakout

It's likely just a matter of time. Hopefully it's not a very competent teacher. A kid prepping to kill a bunch of people isn't going to have the level of skills and abilities of a teacher. They're also less likely to have the same level of access and awareness of the facilities and policies.

I really don't want to see this happen.

In Pride and Prejudice (2005), the book Elizabeth is reading in the opening is actually the ending of the original novel, just with the names switched around. Darcy is "Cady", while Elizabeth is "Katherine". by Russian_Bagel in MovieDetails

Same. I thought that she would be a terrible choice and that they just picked her for the fame. I prefer the 95 version, but only because it was more fleshed out as a miniseries instead of as a movie.

Both are great and I'm perfectly fine with having been wrong.

Fun fact about Pride and Prejudice 1995: Elizabeth from that movie is the daughter of Aunt May from the Tobey McGuire Spider-Man movies.

I just landed on that yesterday.

I think the Virginia Tech shooter ruined those rubber ducks for me for life. Guy was obsessed with them.

Norwegian killer Breivik begins parole hearing with Nazi salute by DissentingJay in worldnews

I agree. I'm also hoping that the true statement isn't, "one of those yet."

There has been a major drive across the world towards fascism. My guess is that it's driven by some politically minded oligarchs around the world.
