WhippingBoy: To the civilized world, the American obsession with guns borders on sexual fetishization. From an outsider's perspective, it appears similar to the individual who covets women's shoes (and cannot obtain sexual release unless masturbating to said shoes). Hence, the connection to unconventional sexual practices when describing the relationship between (American) gun owners and their hobby.
dr.zaeus: natazha: Coming on a Bicycle: You guys actually fire guns in the air at new year's? Ok. 1) Don't come to me again with that talk about responsible gun ownership, and 2) you guys and the Taliban, you deserve each other.Seriously guys, firing guns for celebration purposes is barbaric.Yes, it takes a special kind of stupid, but in my experience (California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Illinois, New Jersey) it's much more common in Hispanic neighborhoods.This has been my experience as well. Perhaps this was the elusive "joke" that subby was attempting to pull off with his weak trolltastic headline.
Mr. Right: If you fire a gun into the air, it leaves at muzzle velocity, whatever that is for your particular firearm. When it returns to earth, it probably achieves what I have heard referred to as terminal velocity. Force being a function of mass and speed, does a bullet returning to earth have as much destructive power as one fired at a target?
