    [–] Weird orbits hint 'Planet Ten' might lurk at solar system edge JayaBallard 1 points ago in space

    Shit, let's just go to Andromeda already.

    The only way we are going to make people's lips move correctly in that galaxy is if we go help them.

    [–] Report: Record 2-mile sniper shot kills ISIS militant in Iraq JayaBallard 4 points ago in news

    Fortunately this is not HALO on Legendary and you don't need to shoot the baddies 4 times to kill them.

    [–] Two Jurors Prevented a Guilty Verdict in Bill Cosby's Trial JayaBallard 1 points ago in news

    He got acquitted because jurors didn't know what the fuck DNA was, and the prosecution made a couple of horrible blunders.

    It boils down to:

    "If we bullshit, you must acquit."

    [–] Two Jurors Prevented a Guilty Verdict in Bill Cosby's Trial JayaBallard 1 points ago in news

    Sides get only so many exemptions in the voir dire and the goal of a defense is to put as many idiots, and I mean true idiots, on the jury who will do exactly this.

    The only thing that is no joke here are Canada's snipers. They have a history of record setting long range kills.

    Maybe they just want to be able to apologize to the target while the bullet is in flight.

    [–] Report: Record 2-mile sniper shot kills ISIS militant in Iraq JayaBallard 6 points ago in news

    The 3,450-meter shot, which took about 10 seconds to reach its target

    Just enough time to utter a James Bond one-liner before the bullet hits.

    Correcting for the Coriolis effect is probably what they're talking about.

    [–] Take it to the limit JayaBallard 2 points ago in Wellthatsucks

    I knew that was going to end badly.

    What I didn't know is that it was going to end even worse than I expected.

    [–] D.C. memorial for slain Muslim teen was set on fire, officials say JayaBallard -1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 hours ago) in news

    I wonder which candidate these vandals voted for in 2016... any bets?

    EDIT: Seems there are some upset, insecure downvoters. What subreddits do you think they might frequent?

    [–] Party at the summit of a pyramid, by life magazine, 1940's. JayaBallard 2 points ago in OldSchoolCool

    The true curse of the pyramid is trying to climb down all 100+ meters while wasted on brandy and absinthe.

    Not anymore.

    These days, you get a few doses of rabies vaccine in a muscle over a couple of weeks, and you might also get an IV of antibodies against rabies virus. The first dose of vaccine is supposed to go near the site where you were bitten (which might suck) but the rest are basically like getting any other intramuscular injection.

    The original rabies vaccine was developed in the 19th century. Nobody knew how to even begin to develop a protocol for treating humans after they'd been bitten. You got the juice shot into your abdominal cavity (i.e. intraperitoneally) every day for about three weeks... hence the longer needles and lack of fun.

    Not sure of any reason the IP route was medically necessary or used for so long, but it did work... and why screw with something that works if the alternative is a horrific certain death?

    That's the mass relay which will lead us to a galaxy full of blue-skinned space babes and mile-long genocidal robot space krill.

    The inevitable civil suit is going to hurt worse than the accident or the jail time.

    An entire bottle of Ambien won't kill you

    It will if you down it with a bottle of vodka.

    Otherwise, yeah, you'd probably just end up posting on /r/ambien

    The fuzzy dice hanging from the rear-view mirror are a nice touch, too. They even matched them to the color of the exterior paint.

    Yeah, the passenger compartment is the crumple zone in cars that old.

    [–] Drunks girls just wanna have fun JayaBallard 1 points ago in instant_regret

    The "flicker from within, then blow the fuck up" trope is old as dirt.

    It started at least as early as the Death Star early 19th century, when the Paixhans gun was developed... but it probably originated with the advent of the naval cannon.

    At one point in our distant history a ship took fire into its magazine, then blew the fuck up. But it didn't do so immediately. So we have this trope.

    Some poor bastard's first rotation:

    "But there aren't that many Vas Def..."

    "I don't care what those libtard professors told you, I see scissors in your hand and they're not cutting!"

    [–] An electrician accidentally punched through the ceiling of the recently renovated $12 million ceiling in the NY public library JayaBallard 131 points ago in Wellthatsucks

    So he fell through the roof, got his testicles crushed by a cable, and was then suspended by that same cable in the middle of a swarm of angry bees?

    Sounds like a Home Alone movie.
