    <div>We did that at a gravel pit with Molotovs made with detergent. Lucky we ain't dead or worse. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    Best way to die for guys who are ready to blow themselfs, this way there is no inoccent victims <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> . I like weapons but i don' t like how most of people are using them.... I am more for the boxing style to resolve conflicts. Imagine Bush vs Sadam in a boxing ring <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> .
     
  8. I'm an honest believer that guns have made mankind weak, no more do humans have to run and hunt, chase their meal. People settle conflict with guns and bombs, life is too easy. Men should settle their conflicts being able to see the eyes of the man they fight IMO. That being said I am a gun nut, I have been reading gunsmithing books for the last 2 years and am enrolling in a gunsmithing class sometime next year. I already have several designs for standard pistols and rifles as well as several high power air rifles (Like the ones you can find for like 2 grand online only they cost me less than 300 to make, go figure) and some other things I need over 5 grand a year in licencing to make lol. But for hunting I prefer a bow and arrow, it takes skill to take game with an arrow. When I can actually reliably hit a target I will try for small game with my slingshot but more practice before that. I've only ever had one wounded animal escape on a hunting trip and I will not add some poor squirrels to that because i wasn't up to par on my shooting yet.

    <span class="postbody"><br>I hate war ... and I hate the way that we humans developed some weapons that makes me chill ... humanity has been at only 2 minutes of total mass destruction (nuclear war), that's is completely insane, perverted ... to day are unmanned weapons that do what I saw in the TERMINATOR movie (also chilling) ... wars in the past were bloody but confined, to day are worldwide ... we are a stupid animal, that why I have more respect with animals, predators take their preys to survive and maintain thing in order to prevent nature disequilibrium, but we humans kill or for fun, or religion or because we are really twisted perverted ... that's sad and bad ... I hunt yes (and I kill), but only to help to maintain the pest at line and I eat them and always try to do it with respect ... I always thanks a rabbit at mi dinner giving me it's life ... </span>
     
  10. Unmanned aircraft are still controlled by a man on the ground, like a wireless video game that actually blows stuff up. It's when the things get a dedicated AI to control all of them (skynet from terminator) that i'll get really creeped out, with a little bit of inginuity and some not difficult to aquire parts (no details are forthcoming from me on this so please do not ask) it is not hard to block a wireless signal and either take over the unmanned vehicles or make them crash. It happens more than the USA admits from people that are suposed to be "cave dwellers" & "farmers with AKs". I am disgusted that they are attempting to remove men from war but still kill men. What ever happened to mano e mano?

    <span class="postbody"><br>yes AI for war, that would be complete slavery ... I saw a fiction movie were very sophisticated AI nuclear control computers the Americans and Russia made a deal to took over the humanity control ... insane, but I know that many talented people are working hard to bring this to reality ... I wonder when? ... maybe more soon than we suspect ... what will be the heritage for our future generations? my grandsons ?</span>

    About those Syrian rebels... that' s the stupidest thing i ever seen. How can they aim to a target when shooting from behind a wall. Throwing explosives that way is just insane and not responsable, that' s the stupidity that makes collateral damages. They better watch <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBd5W9IA7n0" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">THIS</a>.<br>PS: I' m not gay <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_evil.gif" alt="Evil or Very Mad" longdesc="12">
