Just wondering but does a gun shot kill instantly, like no pain??

It can, depending where it hits. Why?

It came up in conversation with a friend and we didn’t know

Well they aren’t magical, it’s…

Isn’t hydrostatic shock a big part of the killing power? After all, an arrow from a bow or crossbow generally doesn’t drop things near as fast.

I’m pretty skeptical towards hydrostatic shock personally.

And I’d say it’s because a bullet moves way faster, achieving more penetration, and given how it doesn’t have a long shaft to hold it down, it can bounce, spin and tumble inside a target freely, it can also expand and fragment.

Arrows and bolts are pretty deadly also, if you put a bolt through someones heart, they’re kinda done.

I cannot stop laughing

Fun confirmed for literally worse than Hitler.

Oh, trust me Kazu, I read the full thing, and wanting to assassinate fun is just the icing on the cake. Check this out:

I never thought anyone besides a grey-haired politician or Jack Thompson would unironically use the term murder simulator, especially not a gaming news website.
This truly shows how far we’ve come. We no longer need politicians or pissed off lawyers to rant about how disgusting and damaging to society violent video games are; now Gaming ‘Journalists’ are doing it for them.

Once upon a time, when I read EGM and OPM religiously every morning while eating breakfast before school, I really wanted to become a gaming journalist. Writing was the only thing I had a semblance of confidence in school, and despite my grumblings, I fucking love video games. I knew there would be a lot of hard work involved, but it was literally my dream job when I was younger.
And now there’s this.

I work at Goodwill now.

Pretty much why I went “yeah I’m gonna take a break from this” after EA laid me off after only 3 months.

Boy oh boy, vidya journalism would appear to be rotten to the core.

Garum —- The official condiment of the ancient Roman Empire

In the ancient Roman world a salty, oily condiment made from fermented fish guts took the Roman Empire by storm.  Called garum, it became an important commodity all over the empire, providing fats, protein, salts, vitamins, minerals, and most importantly flavor to places in the empire were little could be found.  Originally a Greek creation, the Roman obsession with garum would propel the fish sauce to become the most popular condiment in the Roman Empire.

Our modern society is a very wasteful society, we take it for granted that we can just use something and throw it away.  However, our ancestors had a completely different attitude.  Nothing went to waste and everything was put to use.  “Waste not, want not” was not simply a saying, but a mantra that meant life or death, prosperity or disaster for ancient people’s.  So if an animal was slaughtered, it was guaranteed that every part was consumed or used in some way. 

Garum was a result of this culture.  When the fishmongers gutted the daily catch, the guts, scales, and other inedible parts were not merely thrown away, rather they were gathered by the garum maker.  The guts were coated with salt, layered in large urns, and left out to heat in the sun for one to three months.  During this time the ingredients would liquefy and ferment, forming a thick paste.  When ready, a clear amber colored fluid would separate for the thicker material.  This clear fluid was pure garum, and was skimmed, bolted, and sold for a hefty price.  The skimming of more fluid would lead to cloudier and less pure forms of garum, which were much cheaper.  The remaining paste was called “allum”, and was sold as a budget “poor mans garum sauce”.  All grades of garum were flavored with different herbs and spices, depending on local tastes.

Because the Roman Empire was centered in the Mediterranean, the Roman economy was also heavily dependent on fishing.  Numerous fisheries and ports dotted all along the Mediterranean coast, and where there fisheries, there were garum makers.  Usually, however, the garum makers were relegated to the outskirts of a city, as the process of garum making tended to create an enormous stench.  Garum itself became one of the most important commodities of the Roman world, being shipped all over Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.  It was issued regularly as rations for Roman soldiers and was even accepted as money.  Garum was also valued for its medicinal value; used to treat dog bites, diarrhea, ulcers, dysentery, to remove unwanted hair, and to remove freckles.

Alas the fall of the Roman Empire would lead to the fall of garum, especially as Germanic peoples who turned their noses at fermented fish sauce settled Europe and carved out kingdoms from the former Roman Empire.  Today garum still can be found, though only produced by small business who cater to specialty gourmet foods.  At around the same time the Romans were making garum, peoples in Southeast Asia were making a remarkably similar fish sauce called  nước mắm, which today is still widely popular in Vietnamese, Thai, and Cambodian cuisine.

>Fermented fish sauce

I have to say, that shit sounds absolutely fucking vile.

It can, depending where it hits. Why?

It came up in conversation with a friend and we didn’t know

Well they aren’t magical, it’s basically like an incredibly fast stab, to make a clumsy comparison, there’s a lot to factor in, how deep it penetrates into the target (this is all affected by so many things, the cartridge, the barrel length, the distance, the angle, what the target is wearing, the target itself, and where on the target you hit) if it tumbles, yaws, fragments, expands, etc, while a shot to gut may not be instantly fatal (and even survivable in good cases), that’s still a wound into the body, and gutshots are bad because they can lead to very serious infections from the intestinal bacterial flora getting in the bloodstream, or worse, if the gallbladder ruptures, a particularly unpleasant way to die. The fact that you’ll lose blood is also something to consider.

Taking a shot to the heart can be pretty quickly fatal, if the heart stops, there’s nothing to pump blood through the body, meaning the brain won’t get any oxygen (you’ll pass out in about 10 seconds, brain damage starts occurring after about 10 minutes I think). If sufficient damage is done to the spine or neck, you could die relatively fast, or relatively slowly.

Trying to take out as much of the brain as possible in one shot would probably be fastest way, but even then, who knows what could go wrong? You could turn into a brain-fucked vegetable in a wheelchair, god only knows how you’d perceive reality after surviving particularly awful brain damage.

Question reblogged from Creating The Means For The Production with 59 notes

Anonymous said: don't you think that it's a bit irresponsible to characterize perceived differences in ability between genders as purely biological? in treating inequality as something that's ingrained in genetics, you inadvertently build a case that that inequality is somehow deserved. biological essentialism is a loaded standpoint, and one that's commonly used to excuse active bigotry -- I'd think a bit more deeply about this, and in particular the way that systemic bias might affect these issues.

thefineyoungcapitalists:

I could literally write a book on the disadvantages and advantages, gender provides in different situations.

I’m not going to because there are already thousand of books on the topic that are better written than mine would be. I would suggest Unlocking the Clubhouse  if my readers are interested in learning more about these issues as they relate to programming and computer science.

We can change society, we currently don’t have the capacity to change the genetic makeup of people and may never have such ability.

As such when I say that men and women will never be equal, I will use an example we can’t change. Instead of pointing out ones we can.

Just because you are uncomfortable being presented with this truth, does not obligate me to hide it from you or other readers. 

The first condition of progress is the removal of censorship. -George Bernard Shaw

Looks neat, but how’s insulation? It seems to have electricity but is it hooked up to the grid? Does it have running water? How’s the bathroom?
More importantly, could I dig a moat in a perimeter around that kind of building without hitting some sort of pipe or line? Does it have a basement?
