High Speed Camera

Cool video showing showing a bullet ripping through stuff. As I have said before, I love when you speed up or slow down the time frame of what our eyes typically see. A lot goes on in between the around 30 frames per second that we view our surroundings.

I think the water bottle was the best.

Cute, kill the guns. Ahh, if only it were that simple.

How about kill the people that would use guns to kill people? That is the only way to solve the problem. It'll be pretty tough to do without a time cop. (he can travel back in time, and cap the crim before he shoots someone.)

If guns are illegal, only criminals will have guns. Yes, it may be a cliche saying, but it is true. Think about it... In most societies that I know of, shooting people is illegal. Yet people still do it. If you could melt down all guns and turn them into tricycles for impoverished third world children, the crims would find something else to use, say, a knife!

Then we get a video titled 'Stop the Stabbing, Kill the Knife'. Melt all knives down! 'Stop the Arrow, Kill the Bow'. 'Stop the Throwing, Kill the Stone'. 'Stop the Poking (with sticks), Kill the Tree'. 'Stop the Beatings, Kill the Fist'. Finally we'd end up with, 'Stop the Stompings, Kill the Feet'. We would be a bunch of torsos in a sandy desert. Is that what we want?

The gun is only around five hundred years old, and us humans go back quite a bit farther than that. Was the world a happy utopia that the gun ruined? Uhh, no. [h/t BlackFive]
