Now all I'm thinking about is Tube Navy, Boat Navy, and Bird Navy.


And it just hit me that you're trapped in Caid, in Calafia. The suffering.

TUBE NAVY.

I've already had a lovely time with some members out here, but I don't remember how long ago it was since you played.

I just realized it's been almost a decade since I lived in California.

Oops? Were you stationed here?

Also, a third of San Diego County is on fire right now. My asthma is displeased.

I grew in SoCal. And California bursts into flames at least once a year. My home town is getting smoked out by the fires near Bakersfield.

I have to admit, the ambivalence regarding the fires is sort of hilarious, and reminds me of hurricanes back east.

"Well, if we gotta evac, we gotta evac. Nothing we can do, and hopefully they'll contain it. Want a beer?"

Just wait until an earthquake happens.

It's almost as if none of this information is easily obtainable from the internet.

The M-16's calibre is the NATO standard, replacing the  7.62◊51mm standard from the 1950s because with improvements to weapon rates of fire, they were responsible for too much recoil and not taking advantage of the improved automatic rate of fire.

At the expense of killing-capacity/range:

A U.S. Army study found that the 5.56 mm bullets fired from M-4s donít retain enough velocity at distances greater than 1,000 feet (300 meters) to kill an adversary. In hilly regions of Afghanistan, NATO and insurgent forces are often 2,000 to 2,500 feet (600-800 meters) apart.


An M4 is not an M16.  It has a shorter barrel.  Do I need to explain why that is important in a firearm?
You may gain some accuracy, however, the round being fired is still essentially the size of a .22.  What surprised me is how they explain most of the bullet's damage coming from how it "tumbles" through it's target.

You've never actually fired a .22, have you? They bounce off of fucking kneecaps. M16 ammunition does not bounce off of kneecaps.
