British EOB armor
Designed by the Munitions Inventions Board c.1915-17.
Steel breastplate and additional plates in canvas, 40-layers silk neckguard also wrapped in canvas.
The Standard Model Breastplate 1916-17 was produced and issued in large number starting in 1917, although there were never enough of them to equip more than 2% of the British army. These protections were developed following a studies of wounds received by soldiers on the front, showing that beside extremities the neck body and head received an equal amount of hurt. Although even the slimmest amount of head protection could save a life, making a body armor which advantages outdid its encumbrance.

I read years ago how thick layers of silk proved effective in bulletproof vests.
In the late 1800s, both Japan and Korea developed some of the first modern bulletproof vests when they discovered that 30 layers of silk fabric could stop the black powder bullets of the day. This "soft armor" laid the foundation for numerous inventors who tried to improve upon the idea as firearms became more powerful.
A priest from Chicago named Casimir Zeglen, with the help of fellow inventor Jan Szczepanik, devised a special way to weave a 1.6mm steel plate between four layers of silk. Zeglen claimed his 1/8" thick, 1/2 lb. vest could stop a .44 caliber—and he proved it when he volunteered to be shot before a live audience in New York City. When he was struck by the bullet at only 10 paces, he said he felt just "a tap." Zeglen and his "bullet proof cloth" became an overnight sensation. Egged on by the positive publicity, Zeglen left the priesthood in order to pursue his new business venture. https://mentalfloss.com/article/24039/brief-history-bulletproof-vests

Sadly, he never made his fortune, in part due to bad timing and bad luck. When the U.S. Military tested his invention, they found that it was too hot and too expensive thanks to the amount of silk required. Undaunted, Zeglen then offered one to President McKinley in the hopes it might spur interest. After contacting the White House, Zeglen was told he could meet the President in a month, as McKinley was going to be too busy traveling. Two weeks later in Buffalo, McKinley was shot and killed by an assassin's bullet that ripped through his abdomen. Zeglen's vest would have easily stopped the .32 caliber round.

Zeglen did manage to get Archduke Franz Ferdinand to accept one of his vests.

Unfortunately, Ferdinand was killed while wearing it. The kill shot hit him in the neck, well above the vest itself, but it didn't matter—the bad publicity didn't help and Zeglen was soon out of business.

  How many rounds fired does it take to melt the barrel on an M16?
Recently, New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate Pat Davis (a former cop) bluntly declares "Fuck the NRA" in a new campaign ad, knowing that political ads on Arizona TV can't be censored that gave him the opportunity to legally drop the F-bomb on air. Fox News host Tucker Carlson (patrician pundit and heir to the Swanson frozen-food fortune) invited him on his show and completely lost his mind during this interview while he was screeching that a bump-stock equipped AR-15 can't possibly fire at 150 rounds in 15 seconds because it "would instantly melt the barrel" so it's impossible.

150 rounds in 15 seconds is 600 rounds per minute. The M16 assault rifle (the military rifle that the civilian semi-auto AR-15 is based upon) has a rate of fire of 700 to 950 rounds per minute (cyclic sustained fire). So this bump-stock equipped AR-15 fires at a much lower rate than the M16. And yes, there are 150-round magazines for the AR-15 (they cost a fortune, though; around $450).

Special thanks to our friends at Quiet Riot Firearms in McDonough, GA for providing the M16 lower for this video. In this Meltdown, we take an entry level upper from Palmetto State Armory and shoot it full auto until failure. It's very interesting to see how various levels of quality in the components really make a difference in these tests. Stay Tuned, much more on the way.

True communism, never existed in the world. We can talk about communists -people with a certain definition of communism, views and possibly communal ownership, in a state reality which has as much to do with communism as design space ferries with chicken farms.Even
the communist government, composed of communists, does not determine the communist regime and sooner on the more or less real or more or less utopian version of socialism.

First of all, communism has never been built, maybe apart from the Sultanate of Brunei and the United Arab Emirates, where thanks to the small size of the country and with large oil deposits, a system was introduced that the citizen gets what he needs from power and for free. But even there there are class differences and money,which in communism should not be necessary.

Meanwhile in a society which fully understand idea of communism , each individual will intuitively know what to do and where to go
to enter into resonance with another unit that is able to provide it (whether it's a service or a good). There will be no currency in this a society. Everyone will do what he is passionate about and excitement. For example, one person is passionate about producing healthy food and other person is passionate about producingtools for the production of this food. Some of them will satisfy the needs of others without the need for money. In our present society, this solution exists partly among passionate people. The one who lives with passion and excitement will notice the same as "things" always happen in the right place and time, and one does not have to strain too much to live in abundance.

Unfortunately, today's society is dominated by the desire to dominate and having more than others. This creates a hierarchy and social problems . Let changes take place they must occur at the level of the individual and then at the level of the collective.

We need the Brazilian perspective.
- Brazilian Model 1908 Mauser Rifle in 7x57mm Mauser (Mfg by Deutsche Waffen und Munitions Fabriken, Berlin [DWM])
The Mauser Modelo 1908 long rifle became the standard infantry rifle for the Brazilian Army in 1908. The rifles were produced by DWM, then owned by the Ludwig Loewe Company. DWM, in turn contracted some rifles out to Mauser Oberndorf, which was also owned by Loewe at the time. The maker of any particular rifle can be determined by looking at the address – if Berlin, it is made by DWM. If Oberndorf, it is made by Mauser. The DWM made rifles are more commonly encountered. The contract ran from 1908 until the outbreak of war in 1914. The rifles are essentially the same as the German Gew98 with the most obvious exception being the tang style sight employed in lieu of the Lange-Vernier sight used on the Gew98. The receiver and bolt were left in the white, as was the bayonet lug. The remainder of the rifle was either chemically blued or heat blued. The stocks were made of walnut and retain the pre-1905 Gew98 style stock washer as opposed to the bolt takedown disk then in use on the German issue rifles. https://www.milsurps.com/content.php?r=265-Brazilian-Model-1908-Mauser-Rifle-(Mfg-by-DWM)

If you hate crowds so much and want to be a hunter-gatherer, you can do that now. Go live in some remote location, like the wilderness in Montana, the deserts in Arizona, the plains in Wyoming, or live among other aboriginal hunter-gatherers in Australia or Africa. Be prepared for a harsh and short life, though. Scrounging around for food, water and shelter is exhausting, I have heard.

AVERAGE WORLDWIDE HUMAN life expectancy reached 66 years in the first quinquennium of the twenty-first century, with extremes at the country level ranging from 39 years in Zambia to 82 years in Japan (United Nations 2007). Average life expectancy has increased linearly at almost three months per year over the past 160 years. Among traditional hunter-gatherers, the average life expectancy at birth varies from 21 to 37 years. https://condensedscience.wordpress.com/2011/06/28/life-expectancy-in-hunter-gatherers-and-other-groups/

Tab ate my long ass whiny rant because I'm phone posting. With less swear words, here is my situation: I have been inadequately trained and outfitted for this job. The client company now knows me because I showed up asking for a fish key; my lacking one was crippling my productivity. It became very clear to the employee that met me that I don't know shit, and things snowballed from there. They are now auditing my work at my boss's expense. With that on my mind, I've been driving around some of the roughest terrain in the state in a 2wd Dodge S"""U"""V. It is now stuck in a saddle on a ridge line with the slopes fore and aft of it too steep to pass. I mean stuck. When I say I hit those hills, I was their pimp, and they owed me money. A lovely older couple in a side-by-side sat me on their spare tire where I clung to the roll bars for dear life while they drove me out of their. The ranger was impressed, nay, in awe at the determination and stupidity it took to get my car where I did. If the company can't extract it, the forestry service is going to drag it out with a bulldozer. I've been assured it's not a bill we want.

  Y'know how some military vets are triggered by fireworks? Well it's pressure cookers for me.

I was at a site with a gas turbine in the basement with the exhaust feeding a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG). They also have a couple of other boilers and a steam turbine hooked up to a generator. The turbine was shut down when I arrived so I do my inspection while the operator is off messing with something over by the steam turbine. I complete my visual inspection and the operator says he's ready to start the gas turbine. Cool, I can check for leaks and get some running data.

The usual procedure is to start the gas turbine and just run it at idle for a little while to let the HRSG heat up. The HRSG is a boiler that uses the turbine exhaust as the heat source. Sometimes they will also have a "duct burner" which is like an afterburner on a jet, but its job is to make more heat (and steam) not thrust.

The operator starts it up, idles for a while, looking good, then commands the turbine to load up. Once you start putting on load the turbine, that's when the exhaust temperature and volume really starts. After a few minutes the steam pressure is starting to rise, and rise, and rise. The operator was off messing with the steam turbine and taking boilers offline, ok cool he's running the show.

I'm in the control room looking over some stuff on my computer when I hear "POP HIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS" coming from the plant. After a couple of seconds the building fire alarm goes off telling everyone to evacuate. I look out of the control room window expecting to see a burnt and scalded man appearing from a cloud of steam, but there was no visible steam and the operator was fine.

> pressure cooker venting sound, loud as fuck

The operator hauls ass back to the control room and tells me he wants to shut down the turbine. I initiate a normal stop from the control computer then go out to the turbine and hit the e-stop. For the next 20 minutes the fire alarm is going off, people are calling the control room phone asking what the fuck, and the operator going in every direction. The facility fire and safety people show up, wearing no protective gear at all, and look around a bit. Supervisors and managers start to appear.

After the steam whistling stopped, I went over to the steam turbine to find the offending pressure relief valve puking water everywhere. I figured this was a good of a time as any to get the oil sample from the gas turbine, so that's what I did, then packed my shit and left.
