    those man killer bullets (hollow points) are actually safer as home defense ammo because they will shatter and flatten upon hitting an intruder or wall in the event of a miss i have a clip loaded with those that i keep when walking around town or at home but i use fmj (full metal jacket) when target shooting

    I'm not an engineer either but I think part of the idea of a trebuchet is the fact that the momentum built up by all the extra steps end up giving it greater range and velocity than a normal catapult.

    @38:02 is that the regular quiz where they give you 7 random questions (which could be heavily swayed) or is that the full quiz? 

    Edit: nevermind, this is why I shouldn't comment before finishing the segment.

    Just to be clear, if either of the adult Joneses should be blasting someone as they enter the bedroom, pretty sure it should Lindsay considering her background and experience.

    If anyone at Rooster Teeth would like to have a conversation about firearms, that is not radical and open minded, I would love to talk to them and give them an idea of what living in an area where the police take 15 minutes to arrive, and most shootouts take place in seconds.

    When it comes to girly drinks, the shape of the glass serves a function. Martini glasses have a stem to grab. This keeps the drink from getting warm in your hands. A snifter (I think) is for brandy and is meant to use the temperature of your hand to warm the drink.


    And just remember the next time you order a "girly" drink, James Bond ordered a Vodka martini shaken not stirred (heresy in the world of cocktails). Sure, we're not all James Bond but the women of Sex and the City shouldn't be the barometer for what drinks are masculine or feminine.

    im with gavin, i think use of the word "gay" doesnt HAVE to be restricted to its literal meaning out of fear of offending a gay person. i mean, michael didnt have a problem jokingly calling someone a fucking retard. and im not saying its ok to go around calling people fags as a general insult like it used to be, its NOT. but a dude poking a dude with a dildo is kinda gay.

      Like...as a queer person I'm generally the first to be like hEY that's pretty damn offensive to us but yeah man when Gavin said that I immediately understood what he meant like: are you more comfortable being physically close or "intimate" with men than you were before? Do you do it more often now?


      I was on Gav's side so I was a lil annoyed when Michael instantly rebutted him cause I didn't think it was necessary to idk call him out in a way? It reminded me of the people they usually complain about being "too sensitive" lmao. 


      I say shit is gay all the time (not as an insult) in a way like, two guys/girls being really close I'm like "look how gay they are" and it's a joke, it's not serious, I know they aren't ACTUALLY gay. But yeah, I found Gav funny~

    **I paused at 4:39, so I am not sure how much more they talk about this.**

    The idea of them making a new channel and seeing if they can make it popular is really cool and I think would make a really cool RT Doc.

    World record trebuchet at Warwick Castle - 

    The world's largest trebuchet siege engine at Warwick Castle in the midlands, fired daily and similar to the design of the smaller trebuchet at Dover castle. It stands 18 metres tall and weighs 22 tonnes, It uses a 5 tonne swinging counterweight on the end of the arm to fire rounds of 15kg in weight at up to 250 kmh (150 mph) but can cope with projectiles of up to ten times this weight!

    What Elyse said about the Harry Potter wand thing is very true. I got picked for the wand, I am 24 years old. There was a seven year old boy next to me!! The ONLY KID IN THE GROUP! They must have had some kind of dweeb-radar. Or a "who is willing to pay 50 dollars for a fake stick" radar.

    Idea for Gavin, somewhat of a rick roll. Gavin makes a couple of one minute videos of doing something annoying or funny. Like him in his penis costume just jumping around, or him in the nose costume running into a wall. He then gives those clips to some of the popular youtubers in which they put one of the clips Gavin makes into a normal video. So for instance you could be in a serious discussion on science and then hard cut to Gavin's clip with loud music surprising the viewer then it just goes back to the normal video. The viewer not missing anything but for a minute you get to see a Gavin clip during the video.

    There are many types of ways to end or even start a Football/Soccer Cubs name E.G, 

    A.F.C - Association Football Club, F.C - Football Club, Athletic, City, United, Town,Wanderers,

    Rangers, Rovers, Albion, Even one teams last name is Villa and another one team is named Orient

    The reason why they end in F.C is just tell what sport that team is from.

    Those "people killers" (hallow points) are actually a lot better because typically they put more force on the person and less piercing power. So when you hit someone it stays inside of them and doesn't go through them and the walls

    peta released the dog's purpose video bc they think everything is abuse then tmz popularlized it, but it was really that the dog was scared to go in the water, but they comforted it until it went in, then it swam and they had a hard time getting it out of the water.

      You mean your 2nd amendment which was written in the time of muskets and flintlock pistols? The one that was made so regular citizens could fight back against the government before the government had drones,tanks,attack choppers, fighter jets, LAV's etc.? Also common sense gun laws like keeping it of the hands of crazy people and people with a heavy criminal background (who people like you ironically say you need your guns to protect against) won't cause the police to come bash down your door and take your guns so stop being so damn paranoid.


      Rant over
