Someone told a Russian weapon designer to build a Cold War tank and took it literally. :lol:

I still have the Wham-O Superball.  Starting to loose a little of it's bounce due to it's age 50+ years. (like me).  Being a kid, was a little nervous over the claim, stating it contained 50,000 lbs of compressed energy - one little dent and BOOM!  Found out later that was part of the vulcanization process, pressure needed along with the extra added sulfur

Hey ham. Ever have a Wham-O Turbo Tube when you were a kid?...

 

 

(...I did...and in fact you can make one by folding a standard 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper in a particular way)

 

I never seen that before. Thanks.

You can see the effect of wing tip vortex clearly.

Must be for people that can't shoot straight.

 

 

Or for those who like to shoot everything with exactly three bullets (even if they are a bad shot).

 

Maybe they can try to load some buckshot into it, in spite of the revolver. 

:P

Okay Barney, you can put your bullet back into your pocket.

Chernobyl nuclear power plant hit by 'Petya' ransomware attack causing havoc across the globe

All work at the power plant has been suspended, as staff are unable to access reports and metrics

 

http://www.mirror.co...nt-hit-10697960

 

Nuclear power plants typically have mechanically actuated controls, such as pneumatic-connected switches between the operators and the equipment.  Just in case something like this happens.  Just so things don't go haywire.  Still I find this to be a bit scary.

Thank goodness they stopped in time, hate for an accident to happen. :blink:
