Electromagnetic Coilgun Doesn’t Need a License Robert Wilsford created an Electromagnetic Coilgun from some very common items that can be found easily on the websites, so you can also try this and make a nice gadget sitting at your home sweet home. I like guns a lot, but we can’t keep them at our homes without a license but this gun doesn’t need any license such as the Steampunk Coilgun. Well! If you are arsenal lover like me, needless to say, you would dare to make this gun. The outer body of the coilgun is made from wood, plexiglass and metal while in the interior electromagnetic coils have been used coils to push a ferromagnetic projectile (here round ball like bullet of steel) at a great velocity through a barrel. In tools you would need a Solderer, Pliers, Wire Cutters, Wire Stripper, Scissors, Glue Gun and a Flat Head Screw Driver. In case you are interested in doing more cool experiments, you can make Clockwork Crocodile Is the Steampunk Age Reptile, or Steve Jobs Cheese Head. Via: Hacknmod

Why I Carry a 9MM Handgun Why I Carry a 9MM Handgun The other day I ran into an acquaintance (who I barely know) and he told me that he’d just purchased a .45 caliber handgun. He said he loved the gun, but the only problem was he couldn’t shoot it. Next, he asked me what type of gun I carried and I told him my carry gun was the Glock 19 9mm. I had a nice laugh, especially since this fellow asked me to give him a private shooting lesson. So why exactly do I carry a 9mm and why do I think you should too? Well, it’s not because I don’t love a .45 and the feel of my Springfield 1911 in my hand. And the fact is, if I’m ever involved in a self-defense shooting situation, I have the odd feeling my “target” is not going to be standing perfectly still like it is when I’m at the gun range. And it’s for this very reason I carry the 9mm. You see, the 9mm lets me get off a quicker burst of shots because it has less recoil and enables me to get my gun back on target quicker. Remember, shot placement is what’s important.

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Chapter One A SQUAT grey building of only thirty-four stories. Over the main entrance the words, CENTRAL LONDON HATCHERY AND CONDITIONING CENTRE, and, in a shield, the World State's motto, COMMUNITY, IDENTITY, STABILITY. The enormous room on the ground floor faced towards the north. "And this," said the Director opening the door, "is the Fertilizing Room." Bent over their instruments, three hundred Fertilizers were plunged, as the Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning entered the room, in the scarcely breathing silence, the absent-minded, soliloquizing hum or whistle, of absorbed concentration. "Just to give you a general idea," he would explain to them. "To-morrow," he would add, smiling at them with a slightly menacing geniality, "you'll be settling down to serious work. Meanwhile, it was a privilege. Tall and rather thin but upright, the Director advanced into the room. "Bokanovsky's Process," repeated the Director, and the students underlined the words in their little notebooks. Mr.

SOFEX: The Business of War | VICE News The Dillon Aero M134D Gatling Gun, a “six-barreled, electrically driven machine gun chambered in 7.62mm NATO that fires at a fixed rate of 3,000 shots per minute.” It was one of countless killing machines featured at SOFEX. Photo courtesy of Dillon Aero. “You know, it’s weird, man. It’s like everybody’s real cordial with each other. On arriving at SOFEX, I was reminded of when I was a punk kid and it was fashionable to say things like, “The military-industrial complex is taking over the world.” SOFEX takes place every two years in Amman, and is largely the brainchild of Jordan’s king, Abdullah II, who has a penchant for special operations and massive displays of artillery. The Ultimate Warrior Competition is sponsored by KASOTC, a “counterterrorism training facility” in Jordan founded by King Abdullah. I’ve been to hundreds of depressing media trade shows, and SOFEX’s salespeople are no different from the rest, except that their wares are designed to destroy things and kill people. Lt.

How to Become a Human Calendar Mentally finding out the day of the week for any date is a skill you can easily learn. You don’t need to be an autistic genius – all it takes is basic memorization effort and some trivial math. When I first learned this technique many years ago, I did it just for fun. With time, I learned to enjoy the convenience of not needing a calendar anymore. The Method To find out the days of the week for any date, use the formula: [day of week] = (yearcode + monthcode + day) mod 7 If you’re not math-inclined, this may look quite scary at first, but don’t worry: using the formula is straightforward. Month and Year Codes The month codes are one of the formula’s most troublesome parts, since they don’t follow a clear logic. January: 1 February: 4 March: 4 April: 0 May: 2 June: 5 July: 0 August: 3 September: 6 October: 1 November: 4 December: 6 We also need the year code, which are also apparently arbitrary. Days of the Week The Calculation Step 1: Get the codes for month and year. 5 means Thursday.

How to Deliver a Speech that Gets a Standing Ovation Rebecca MacDonald, a Canadian immigrant born in the former Yugoslavia who started with nothing and is now executive chair of Just Energy, a $2.3 billion (market cap) energy firm, delivered such a vivid and passionate speech at the Womens' Presidents Organization annual conference on Thursday afternoon in Vancouver, that the entire audience of 650 women business owners spontaneously leapt out of seats to clap, howl and cheer her on. 'I laughed, I cried, I almost had to leave the room when she spoke about her relationship with her mother,' said Nancy Lyons, president of Clockwork in Minneapolis, raving about the range of emotions MacDonald inspired just moments after the remarks.
