Filed in things you now know are possible but should probably never try in your lifetime unless your life depended on it but maybe still shouldn't: jump starting a dead car battery with an AK-47. Yes, you can do that. Watch these insane Iraqi soldiers use the metal of the AK-47 to bridge the two batteries. Metal conducts electricity! And I guess AK-47s are basically Swiss Army knives, right?
Do you want to buy a house or a piece of Star Wars history? Would you like a Ferrari or the DL-44 Blaster that Harrison Ford used? A college education or a toy gun? The answer is obvious right? It's Han Solo's DL-44 Blaster every time. The blaster pistol made famous by Han Solo is up for auction and it's expected to fetch more than $200,000. Let's pool our money guys.
Quick what does the United States have in common with Serbia and Yemen? No, not just that they all have the vowel E in them. No, not because they start with letters in the second half of the alphabet. And no, not nothing either. According to popular estimates, the US, Serbia and Yemen make up the top 3 in countries of the world that have the most guns per 100 people. We're number one, unsurprisingly.
Russia's naval special forces, like our Navy SEALs, spend about as much time underwater as they do above it. As such, these aqueous commandos typically are required to carry at least two firearms, one for land assaults and a second outfitted for underwater combat. But this amphibious rifle is equally effective in both environments.
In all your years of owning an iPhone, I hope you never have to use it as a bulletproof vest. Because it wouldn’t work. It might be able to survive a soft drop on the dirt and come away cracked on concrete and barely scathe away after a quick dip in water but when you pit a iPhone 5C in all its plastic glory against a .50 cal rifle, it’s going down in explosive slow motion fashion. The real question is how many iPhone 5Cs can a .50 cal rifle destroy at one time. [RatedRR]
Different strokes, different folks. Different guns, different countries. Here’s a map showing the military issue rifle for each country in the world. You’ll see familiar M4s, AK-47s, AK-74s, some M16s and tinkles of other weaponry. Judging by the map’s choice of colors, it seems to group weapons that are of a similar family together by color.
