I thought the whole point of the M16 was to be non-lethal:  shoot em in the legs so you also take out a few more, to care for the one that got shot.

 Oh yeah. Guns are totally non-fucking-lethal and designed to just maim the other side a bit.
  :ffs:
The logic was for Vietnam, against Guerilla warfare, two birds one stone.  I was surprised by how small the M16's calibre was, compared to say an AK.

 :um:

I am saving this entire conversation.  :lulz:

Initially, the whole "aim low" thing didn't make sense to me either, but then again, none of it does anyway.  This was that lovely theatre that also brought us Napalm and Agent Orange. :/

Um, where the fuck did you get that idea?
Friend of mine.

Today was all about the main machine's sudden advanced-acute narcolepsy, finally cured by invoking   exotic reboot calls.  Had to execute things on unmounted filesystems that "should probably not be used... giving users advance warning of their impending doom" (per unix man page :lulz:)

FUFFs...  I really thought you were joking about not wanting to know.  My bad.  Harikiri now underway.

What, you think you're the only person with google?  Anyone here could have figured out what was going on with an internet search, just using the terms "west texas desert prada", but sometimes it's fucking okay to let the surreal be a little surreal.

But congratulations.  You are the Smartest Guy in the Room™.
Fair point.  I should have googled it first to see if the answer was indeed that readily available, instead of presuming that just because I didn't already know the answer, it actually was hard to find.  Amateur SGitR mistake.

That all looks awesome - is it in Marfa? 

(I was all trying to be coy, showed pix to my girl: "Hey, girl-friend, check out /this/ Prada store!". She all like, yea, "Is it still there?  By Big Bend and the Thunderbird?". Me, "WTF?!")

It's 40+ miles from Marfa.  If you tell me what this is about, I will make you pay.

The store?  I have no idea...  (consulting resident expert...).  Hmmn, signs point to it being a "conceptual art piece".  Not sure if I'm buying it.

:eek: Its a thing of beauty!

It is.  More to follow.

Fucking thing is on an AIR BEARING, if you can believe it.  It is not physically connected to the floor.  150 tons, floating 1/8" above it's pier.

Talk about impressive!

Is it because they want ionic buildup of some sort? It's an incredible feat, but WHY tho?
Maybe.  Or it could also be for the equivalent of 'steady-shot', in giant optical arrays.  Seems pretty cool from here.

Aaaand, from a wildly wide angle, I was thinking, at the heart of it, there's some pernicious thought-structure that permits people to believe shit like LOVE = WAR.  As though the greatness of both gave them common fucking grounds, like causal interdependence or whatever pathetic excuse for thought happens to be regurgitated and pass as a connection   It like the crazier (blatantly false and unhealthy) the shit is that you submit to believing in, the less you realize or can even discern the indignities that you elect to self-inflict, like a curse.

I've been rolling this one around for the better part of an hour:


I can't stop hitting myself for how profoundly unfortunate all this shit still is, it's like pure evil, that by now has me torn from love to violently depraved copulations of Trump's morbidly mollified moral fiber and Lincoln's most deviantly rusty rail splitter...

Thought about it, how the the comparison to Trump should not even be drawn, that this problem is actually systemic...  Well, then, by the same measure that he feeds on powerlessness, his own will become immanenty manifest.  And one thing'ss for sure, there's no making a martyr out of him.

[it's just venom, that's what I keep telling myself]
