Slow motion missile fired from tank


Stumbled across this amazing video capture of a projectile being fired from a tank.
A telescopic lense on a camera must have been used from a far distance and computer software used for tracking.

  • Tsar Bomba was the nickname of the AN602 hydrogen bomb
  • It is the most powerful and destructive nuclear weapon ever detonated
  • Developed by the Soviet Union
  • Detonated as a test on October 30 1961 in Novaya Zemlya archipelago which is a large island in the Arctic Ocean

  • Teller–Ulam design was the blueprint for this and most Nuclear bombs
  • Has a power yield of 50 megatons which is 1400 times the combined power of both Nuclear weapons used in World war 2. The Fat Man and Little Boy which combined yielded only 39 kilotons
  • Julii Borisovich Khariton Headed the design team that created the Tsar Bomba
  • After this bomb was detonated some of the design team members began speaking out against the use of nuclear weapons

  • The Tsar Bomba was dropped from a modified Tu-95 V release plane flown by major Andrei Durnovtsev
  • A Tu-16 observer plane flew behind The Tu-95 taking air samples and documenting the entire process
  • Both aircrafts were coated with a special reflective paint thought to minimize damage from the heat created from the detonation
  • The Bomb was attached to a massive 800 kilogram parachute that created enough drag to slow the fall and allow the planes to clear the blast zone

Zone of total destruction of the Tsar Bomba
Above: Destruction zone of the Tsar Bomba as an example – over a map of Paris: red circle is total destruction - radius 35 kilometres or 22 miles, yellow circle is fireball radius 3.5 or kilometres 2.2 miles

Glock M78 Field knife and M81 Survival Knife

Glock M78 and M81 Field Knives

Glock M78 and M81 Field Knives
Just ordered this amazing knife to take with me the next time I go camping.
I ordered the Survival version 81 which comes with the saw back unlike the 78 which is a flat back. It also comes with a belt sheath and boot sheath (optional)
The first video below talks about all the features and the second video is one in an 8 part series where the owner puts the knife through a vigorous "destruction" test and he eventually brakes the blade in two but not after much punishment.

After reviewing the Glock M78 Field knife and M81 Survival Knife it is hard to compete with this amazing blade. If you can find one I would definitely buy one. I believe you can order them right from Glocks outdoor accessories page

Mini Nuclear explosion CGI video


Stumbled across this Computer generated imaging of a mini Nuclear explosion.
This sort of video is actually a simple process with the right software and know how.

Its interesting to see the formation of the mushroom cloud on such a small scale. Nice work by whoever made it.

Short letter written by Devin Longe from quentin state penitentiary where he is serving a life time sentence for 3 counts of first degree murder. Warning: Profanity and violence

I did not give a fuck. First dude i killed didnt even faze me one bit. I emptied my clip into him and had a smile on my face the whole fuckin time. And swear to god I aint never felt bad about for even a second. Second dude I killed I did feel a bit bad but only cause he was my brother. He deserved it though and probly woulda killed me if I hadnt killed him.
Doctor says I got a chemical imbalance in my brain. Same kinda shit serial killers have. I told him naw thats just a result of growin up in the hood. I seen my first murder at the age of 4. growing up we was taught its kill or be killed. Thats the street and gang mentality in compton and just a part of life for us. Doctor said that might be the case but you are still imbalanced. I said "what" you insultin me doc. I snatched the pencil off his desk and smashed it through his eye. That was the third murder charge they stuck me with but it'd be 50 charges if they knew all the bodies I left behind.

Just wanted to say Im sorry for nothin and Id do it all again.

Cross blade - Concealed weapon

Cross blade religous Concealed weapon

Cross blade religous Concealed weapon
After the church was robbed for the 5th time father Imanuel decided to start concealing different weapons around the church.
He converted the majority of crosses into bladed weapons and even had a gun hidden in a trap door installed in the altar. He vowed to never inflict injury to another human and claimed the weapons were just to scare off intruders.
One week after father Imanuel installed all the concealed weapons he was arrested and sent to jail for stabbing an altar boy who he thought was stealing from the collection plate.

In the long line of self defense weapons and products for the ladies comes the lipstick knife. The blade is firmly planted in the lipstick container and does not rise or lower by twisting the unit. Better for stabbing and slicing this way. The blade is 2 inches long and comes in single or double bladed.

Ladies be sure not to confuse this with your regular lipstick or you will be painting your lips red with your own blood.
