    The suggestion is SFW. What follows if you complete the search is very not.

    oglaf hilting

    I take no responsibility for what you'll find if you type those two words into google together.

    Good luck.

    TMW you can legally buy alcohol for the rest of the week while you’re in Canada, but you quickly realize it’s not all that exciting of a drug. Maybe if it improved your sleep architecture... but even though it helps you fall asleep faster, it impairs REM and seems to cause you to wake up early even at low doses.

    Reminds me of the Halo games where your melee attack hits extremely hard, but you’ll get shot up quickly trying to actually use it in many levels :p

    This reminds me when my nephew was little and he challenged me to a match in Halo. Which I've never played Halo, however I have played Doom and Fallout 3. ( which is what was out at the time)

    So basically his tactic was running gun, my tactic was camp and snipe. Suffice to say he didn't kill me once, even when I got bored and started running gunning myself. LOL

    He was left utterly shock and dumbfounded, it was the first time I got to use the line; boy, I've been playing these games since before you were born!

    Never fuck with a sniper!!

    TMW... while search the Latest alerts and by page 16 of 25 it dawns on you, you could have just checked Watched Threads in your Profile... So you post here real quick on your way to it.

    It's the recoil and the subsequent time between accurate shots, tbh it's true of most magnum handguns but automatics are worse than the revolvers. Also it beats up your wrists unless you are built like a brick shit house making it harder to shoot accurately.

    The same is true of the FN FiveseveN which essentially fires a rifle round, it's useful for single shot engagements but next to useless for a prolonged gunfight.

    A nice 9mm or .380 is a lot more practical if you are planning on actually using it, or a .45acp if you want the heavy calibre for some reason...

    That said prolonged gun fights with hand weapons are a Hollywood construct. If I was going to engage multiple enemies in a built up environment, I'd want something built for it like a h& k ump or a pump action shotgun firing slugs

    Old statistic that I've probably misremembered some of the exactly details of, but I read once that most police-involved "gunfights" (both parties armed and shooting) take place at less than fifteen feet, last less than eight seconds, everyone involved empties their weapons with zero hits, and devolve into fistfights.

    That moment when you do research for a story, and develop a weird fascination with telephones.

    That moment when there's already a drunk wandering around town dressed in only a pair of shorts and an England flag and the match doesn't even start for 5 hours...

    TMW You're about to come back home, and when you enter your estate, you see an overly formal looking man with a clipboard...and so you head back out and hide for a while!

    ETA: This may or may not have anything to do with me not paying for something...

    I can understand most variants of English, but some Britishisms still make me laugh. To an American, one's estate would look something like this:

    LOL, I got the image of Flawed pulling into a large mansion estate, seeing the monopoly guy waiting for her, and just slowly backing out of the driveway and driving away.

    TMW you arrive to a safety meeting at work and there’s only, like, three people.

    Has no one else got the memo?? :p
