I don't have access to stats but I agree that does seem to be something pretty rare, blowing yourself up by dropping them or making a horrible throw that doesn't get it far enough away is much more likely.

That being said, the rest of your squad will for damned sure appreciate them regardless of whether you're still capable of doing so, and with modern body armor there's a good chance you will still be alive to appreciate them.

Oh, bullets causing hand-grenades to explode is a real problem, subby, and this seems to be it's final solution.

Isn't that an issue on some difficulty levels of Halo?

There were some problems in the early test trials.

Well, that was quick. I can't stick around, but I'm sure Tatsuma will be here around lunch (or 3 a.m. our time).

Israelis make good weapons, like the 'sneak-a-shoot' among many others. I wish the murderer's of Jesus Christ good luck with their latest pointless invention.

I'm pretty sure the Romans did pretty well for themselves for quite a while after that happened.

I GIS'd 'sneak-a-shoot' to see what you were talking about... and got back a veritable cornucopia of weird shiat.

And I still don't know what sneak-a-shoot is.

I suppose you don't really want something to go off in your hand.

No, wait. Um.... I'll be in my bunk ;)

I'm guessing this

Well yeah, if you buy into shoot down projectiles as a heavy, you can pretty much render the demobots (and soldiers) useless.

I'm pretty sure the Roman government became the Catholic Church. You know, before the division of empire.

Now you can safely take cover behind crates of grenades.

What you really need are fart-filtering pants...so you get rose scents or something instead of rancid coffee poured over aged cheese wrapped in Andre the Giant's jockstrap...

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. The guy carrying all the shiat will be happy about this.

So they would not elaborate on how it works? Did they jut use the blackbox casing?

It's where you find a couple being intimate outdoors and then you sneak up on them, get off, and squirt it on them.

No. You need to the fart smell, as a warning to avoid a false sense of safety.

Okay, so they're bulletproof. Are they kosher?

Next the Israels will get really silly with the "Explosion Proof Hand Grenade"

We need to invent a way to prevent "reverse-pickpocketing" of a LIVE GRENADE.

You can shoot 'em in their hands, before they even throw 'em.

For those who didn't read the article, a company developed technology that makes grenades less likely to go off when you don't want them too. Not bullet proof, but shock, flame, and penetration resistant.

IE: the grenade a soldier has attached to his tactical vest is hit by a bullet, shrapnel, blast wave, or high heat it's less likely to go off. This also obviously makes the grenades safer to transport. Thus a roadside bomb results in a few injured soldiers, instead of those same soldiers being killed by secondary explosions from the load they were transporting.

Unless this technology makes the grenade less effective, or heavier, I don't see a downside. I certainly don't care that it was developed by a Jewish company.

Must have been the other guy in the movie theater who saw this. I always wondered what happened to him. Did he go insane?

Yeah, I'm imagining a high-penetration round striking roughly center on a canister designed to explode violently when the contents inside are released. I'm thinking there's some stark benefits to this invention.

The weirdest shiat happens on the battlefield, the strangest occurrences of chance and bravery otherwise not expected. Some of these folks get a Medal of Honor, or at a minimum a Purple Heart. Those whose grenades exploded in a freak accident get sent home in a flag-draped coffin.
