    When shooting a rifle, which hand holds the trigger? If your left, does your chin go over the stock to look through the sites with your right eye?

    Hyper-quick history of rifle calibers for military use:

    - late 19th century you get smokeless powder an' shit, everyone uses fuckhuge "full-power cartridges" like 7,92x57 Mauser or 7,62x54R on long-as-fuck-rifles
    - WW1 everyone keeps using fuckhuge full power
    - WW2 happens, Germans develop and deploy the first "Intermediate Cartridge" , 7,92x33 Kurtz, for the STG series of rifles, realizing that most combat is done on a range of about 300 meters and that with a smaller cartridge you can carry more ammo, control properly full auto in close combat and that you don't need a rifle that can shoot 1km away because no grunt is going to hit anything at that range
    - Soviets get 7,92x33 Kurz captures in 42, they develop 7,62x39 (AK ammunition) for the same reasons
    - Americans post WW2 are retarded and force all NATO to get a common full-power cartridge, 7,62x51, because they're retarded and no one can say no to the US
    - Oh shit 7,62x51 isn't good for grunts, in the 60ies the Americans get out 5,56 (I know, .223 really but DETAILS) because at combat ranges they work the same, you can carry more ammo, control properly full auto in close combat and that you don't need a rifle that can shoot 1km away because no grunt is going to hit anything at that range
    - Soviets get 5,56 and they develop 5,45x39 for the same reasons
    - Cold War ends, nothing happens
    - Memes today for 6,8mm polymeric ammo

    Stopping power is kind of... memetic. For combat purposes at reasonable range with no optics (the vast majority of WW2 - Cold War combat) you have no chance to hit anything at 400+ meters and a full power cartridge is essentially only useless weight and can't control them in full auto properly. You use full-size stuff just for marksmen an' shit.

    There was a Belarussian biathlete like that who had to extensively modify her gun to be able to use it properly.

    I always wondered why the hell did it look like she was aiming with her left eye on shooting close-ups, only much later found out that she was indeed doing that.

    They went for lower power mainly of reason mentioned above but also because in modern war every soldier that is injured needs more supplies that dead soldier. It is far more effective to cripple your enemy by injuring his soldiers rather than killing them, moreover each cripple is huge morale debuff on both military and civilians.

    This is correct but missing one important part: When 5.56 was adopted the DoD cut corners and filled it with the wrong type of powder because government can't do anything right. As a result it gave 5.56 and its rifles a terrible reputation it took forever to lose.

    17 was what I got too. The ones with the faggy ` thing over the letters got me. I didn't know that drug companies were into diacritics. The 'don't learn to speak it, just swallow it' conspiracy goes much deeper than I thought.

    I think whoever decided to name a medicine Elronon was basically trolling us.

    Ever read the book "Bad Pharma" by Ben Goldacre? It's a pretty good overview of the scummy ways that drug companies manipulate research to make themselves look good.
    Not Infowars type shit either, just outlines how they game/get around the peer-review process that pure-science research goes through.

    It uses proprietary names from various countries. Nobody would get them all on the first try.

    Methylenedioxycyclopropylmethylamphetamine
    Derivative form of MDMA. And yes, you'd have to be high to try and pronounce it correctly.

    Nandrolone cyclohexanecarboxylate
    Androgen steroid drug. Compound drugs sometimes take up more letters than actually exist so they make up new ones.

    Talimogene Laherparepvec
    Cancer drug. Also the name of an ancient Persian king.

    These are fun. I'm gonna ask my doctor if I can get some hexawejfhnskdfbhiwehriwhriwerhtwiefhskdjxnv,xcv,mvxnvlxvno3o293u4923u42934u2394u2394u2393amine or least the generic version of it.
