Does failure to understand handguns are made of metal get you a Darwin Award.

Must have influenced the brass in the round chambered in the gun and ignited the primer charge.

Likely eddy current heating (just like a gigantic induction hob) and all the cartridges get hot...

Was that one bullet bitten or a good chew of the full magazine?


Very silly.

Guns should not be needed...

Stay safe?

A lucky escape for those hunters becoming the hunted...

Just as well the bear was not hungry or was otherwise in a good mood that day.


Stay aware folks!

Woops. That's going to be costly.

Snowy 2.0 tunnel boring machine grinds to halt and hole appears on surface.

Having worked on the electronics and computer guidance systems for TBM's I got to know a few things about them. You avoid all area's of soft sandy geology at all times, they only go forwards and as it is stuck, there's not much chance of that. They also get more stuck if they are not moved, the ground above over time squeezes harder and harder. I suppose you could dig a tench and lift it out.

But I would suggest the cheapest option is to write it off, plan a better route, if possible, and build a new machine.

Europen friends look up.

A small asteroid is about to impact Earth’s atmosphere tonight. It is about 1 meter in size and centered over France. The impact is expected in a few hours, at 2:59 UTC 2/13 I should make a very bright fireball.

One of those events one would like to see if they had enough advance warning.

Now this is getting out of control.

Neighbours who were furious about two three-storey glass homes being built next door have had a win.


Some people just don't have a clue. :-(

This seems to be a growing problem these days. :-O

Woman’s passport photo looks nothing like her.

So unless you don't want problems at the other end of your journey then look like your passport photo (or better yet, have your passport photo actually look like you). ;-)

Cheers.
